AspirinWorks Test Now Available Directly To Consumers
August 31, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsAspirinWorks(R) Test Now Available Directly To Consumers from HealthCheckUSA.com. Corgenix Medical Corporation (OTCBB: CONX), worldwide developer and marketer of diagnostic test kits, has entered into an exclusive partnership with online medical testing company HealthcheckUSA.com to provide consumers direct access to the state-of-the-art AspirinWorks(R) Test through HealthcheckUSA's network of over 3,000 patient service centers nationwide at a consumer-friendly price.
Medical studies have shown that aspirin does not have the same effect on everyone; some people may not benefit from daily aspirin therapy. The AspirinWorks Test can determine if aspirin is working to suppress the production of thromboxane, the chemical that causes the platelets to become sticky, indicating whether aspirin is eliciting an effect.
Douglass T. Simpson, Corgenix President and Chief Executive Officer said, "The collaboration with HealthCheckUSA and the availability of the AspirinWorks(R) test through their extensive network of locations are important steps to making the test accessible to the general public. HealthCheckUSA's focus on providing direct-to-consumer medical testing expands our distribution network beyond the traditional clinical laboratory setting. People are more interested in taking charge of their own health; HealthCheckUSA makes this possible by offering valuable tools, such as the AspirinWorks(R) test."
According to Holt Vaughan, President of HealthCheckUSA.com, "The company is delighted to be one of the first to offer the AspirinWorks(R) test directly to consumers. We have researched the AspirinWorks(R) test and think it is a major breakthrough," Vaughan said. "With so many people in this day and age taking aspirin, we believe it is imperative that people understand aspirin does not have the same effect on everyone."
