About Amorfix
Amorfix Life Sciences Ltd. (TSX:AMF) is an early-stage product development 
company developing therapeutic antibodies and diagnostics targeting misfolded 
protein diseases. Amorfix utilizes its computational discovery platform, 
ProMIS™, to predict novel Disease Specific Epitopes (DSEs) on the molecular 
surface of misfolded proteins. Using this technology, Amorfix is developing 
novel antibody therapeutics and companion diagnostics for cancer and 
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). In addition, Amorfix has developed two 
proprietary technologies to specifically identify very low levels of misfolded 
proteins in a biological sample: Epitope Protection™ and AMFIA™, an 
ultra-sensitive dual-bead immunoassay. Use of these technologies has 
generated a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) screening test for both Alzheimer's 
disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and an ultrasensitive method 
for detecting the hallmark of AD, aggregated beta-Amyloid, in brain tissue, 
CSF and blood from animal models of AD. For more information about Amorfix,
