In the News
Dr. Padmanabhan was recently featured in the WisBusiness Podcast describing the rare thrombotic reactions that are occurring to the Johnson & Johnson and Astrazeneca COVID-19 vaccines, and how Retham's test, HITDx will help detect these reactions.
ASH Clinical News recently featured a study published in Blood assessing this technology in a 409 patient clinical study.
Dr. Padmanabhan received the National Blood Foundation Award for Innovative Research for his body of work in HIT
This research was featured in the “Latest and Greatest” section of the American Society of Hematology’s Newsletter
Healio, a medical news, education and information website for physicians and health care practitioners included this research in: "ASH 2015: Several pearls fished from sea of abstracts"
Retham President & CSO, Dr. Padmanabhan received the Lecturer Award from the American Society for Apheresis (April 2018)
Retham Director of R&D, Curtis Jones received the Best Abstract Award from the American Society for Apheresis.
