Cerus (CERS) Enters Purchase Agreement with Mongolia NTC for INTERCEPT Blood System

Cerus Corporation (NASDAQ: CERS) announced today that the National Transfusiology Center (NTC) of Mongolia has signed a purchase agreement for the INTERCEPT Blood System for platelets and plasma. The agreement is part of a national tender awarded to Cerus’ Mongolian distributor, Inter Science LLC, for the supply of blood bank equipment.
“We are honored that INTERCEPT has been chosen by the National Transfusiology Center of Mongolia as part of an important initiative to improve blood transfusion safety,” commented Pascal Maillard, Cerus’ Vice President for Asia. “INTERCEPT’s pathogen inactivation technology represents a leap forward for patients receiving care through the Mongolian health care system.”
The NTC aims to improve the safety of individuals working in and receiving care through the Mongolian health care system, with a mission to improve the safety of blood transfusions, strengthen medical waste management, and prevent and control hospital acquired infections. Mongolia has one of the highest rates of hepatitis B and C in the world, with insufficient blood transfusion and waste management practices contributing to additional rates of infection.
The NTC will complete several system and equipment modifications through 2017 as part of the Fifth Health Sector Development Project (FifHSDP), a partnership between the Ministry of Health and Sports of Mongolia and the Asian Development Bank to technologically improve health care facilities across Mongolia.
Cerus Corporation is a biomedical products company focused in the field of blood transfusion safety. The INTERCEPT Blood System is designed to reduce the risk of transfusion-transmitted infections by inactivating a broad range of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria and parasites that may be present in donated blood. The nucleic acid targeting mechanism of action of the INTERCEPT treatment is designed to inactivate established transfusion threats, such as Hepatitis B and C, HIV, West Nile Virus and bacteria, as well as emerging pathogens such as chikungunya, malaria and dengue. Cerus currently markets and sells the INTERCEPT Blood System for both platelets and plasma in the United States, Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States, the Middle East and selected countries in other regions around the world. The INTERCEPT red blood cell system is in clinical development. Seehttp://www.cerus.com for information about Cerus.
