Athleticode and Metro Orthopedics & Sports Therapy Launch Test to Incorporate Genetics into Sport Concussion Management

April 24, 2013 – San Francisco, CA and Silver Springs, MD – Athleticode Inc., a provider of technology solutions in the sport concussion field, and Metro Orthopedics & Sports Therapy, (M.O.S.T.), a leading sports medicine program, today announced that Athleticode will provide M.O.S.T. with its proprietary genetic technologies to help M.O.S.T. physicians identify athletes more prone to poorer outcomes after concussion in football and other contact sports. Athleticode’s ApoE test provides physicians with contextual information about an athlete’s unique genetic makeup, allowing for a more individualized approach to return-to-play after sport concussion. The American Academy of Neurology recently named the ApoE4 genotype as a biomarker for chronic neurobehavioral impairment after concussion.

Athleticode founder and CEO Dr. James Kovach, a physician and former NFL football player said, “We are excited about the opportunity to launch our novel technology platform through the high tech, high touch clinical approach offered by M.O.S.T. and its leading sports medicine physicians, certified athletic trainers and other sports therapy personnel. This relationship is an important part of our mission to reduce sport injury and its consequences by providing the right information, to the right athlete, at the right time, through powerful genetic technologies such as ApoE testing.”

M.O.S.T. provides its athletes with athletic performance and health sciences service, in order to personalize and customize the consumer experience of health and well-being. M.O.S.T President Dr. James Gilbert said, “Athleticode offers us access to the world’s best sports injury technologies through its internal development efforts and partnering reach. We are excited to make this technology available to athletes seeking to optimize their health after suffering a concussion.”
