Nutter Represents UrSure, Inc. in its Acquisition by OraSure Technologies, Inc.Print PDF
Nutter served as legal counsel to UrSure, Inc., an HIV medication adherence diagnostics company, in connection with its acquisition by OraSure Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSUR), a leader in point of care diagnostic tests and specimen collection and stabilization devices, and microbiome laboratory and analytical services. The legal team was led by Will Bernat and Jeremy Halpern in the Corporate and Transactions Department and included Kelly Dutremble and A.J. Santaniello.
UrSure, Inc. was founded in 2015 by two physicians, who had started a clinic in Philadelphia and recognized that their patients were struggling to consistently take Truvada as PrEP, the medication that prevents HIV infection. In response, UrSure has developed a series of tests to measure and improve adherence to medications for HIV prevention and treatment. To date, UrSure has received millions of dollars in NIH Small Business Innovation Research funding and commercialized the world’s first test for PrEP and HIV treatment adherence, which is in use in clinics nationwide.
