The Board of Directors reaffirms its confidence in the CEO
At its meeting of June 4, 2018, the Board of Directors confirmed Michel Finance’s mandate as CEO and reaffirmed its full and complete confidence in him.
Update regarding the HOB Biotech situation
HOB Biotech’s failure to comply with the terms of the 2015 contractual agreements signed by both companies has led to Theradiag being unable to distribute the agreed products in Europe or to market its reagents in China. Because of the loss suffered by Theradiag, legal proceedings have been initiated against HOB Biotech in order to obtain compensation.
Capitalizing on its expertise in the distribution, development and manufacturing of in vitro diagnostic tests, Theradiag innovates and develops theranostics tests (combining treatment and diagnosis) that measure the efficiency of biotherapies in the treatment of autoimmune diseases and cancer. Theradiag is thus participating in the development of customized treatment, which favors the individualization of treatments, the evaluation of their efficacy and the prevention of drug resistance. Theradiag notably markets the Lisa Tracker® range (CE marked), which is a comprehensive multiparameter theranostic solution for patients with autoimmune diseases treated with biotherapies. The Company is based in Marne-la-Vallée, near Paris, and has over 65 employees.
