The Zyomyx POC CD4 test is currently in final stages of development and expected to launch in the near-term, pending applicable regulatory approvals. Mylan expects to distribute the portable, easy-to-use, low-cost test in the developing world alongside its broad portfolio of high quality, affordable generic antiretroviral (ARV) drugs in order to improve access to and guide HIV/AIDS treatment in resource-limited settings. To complement the exclusive agreement with Zyomyx, Mylan also announced that it has signed a Global Access Commitment with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, an investor in Zyomyx.
