SEATTLE, May 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atossa Genetics Inc. (ATOS) (“Atossa” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing novel therapeutics and delivery methods to treat breast cancer and other breast conditions, today announced its support of the 19th Annual National Women’s Health Week lead by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office on Women’s Health. The annual observance kicks off on Mother’s Day, May 13th and is celebrated through May 19th, 2018. The week serves as a reminder for women to make their health a priority and build positive health habits for life.

“As a leading clinical-stage company developing treatment options for breast cancer, we also encourage women to make their health a priority. Managing cardiovascular risks and preventing cancers with screening tests, like the cervical Pap smear and the breast mammogram, are important steps for a long and healthy life,” said Janet R Rea, MSPH, RAC, SVP of Regulatory, Quality and Clinical Affairs for Atossa. “Early testing for both cardiovascular and pre-cancerous conditions that can lead to a variety of cancers is immensely valuable to women and their loved ones.”
