  MdxHealth (TM) : MDxHealth and Sumitomo Sign Pharmaco Molecular Diagnostic
                            Partnership for Japan

IRVINE, CA, and LIEGE, BELGIUM  - 8:00 AM, July 1,  2013 - MDxHealth SA  (NYSE 
Euronext: MDXH),  a leading  molecular diagnostic  company that  develops  and 
commercializes epigenetic  tests to  support the  diagnosis and  treatment  of 
cancer patients,  today announced  the signing  of a  partnership with  Summit 
Pharmaceuticals International  Corporation  (SPI)  a  subsidiary  of  Sumitomo 
Corporation to gain access to the Japanese market with its pharmaco  molecular 
diagnostic (PharmacoMDx) epigenetic technologies and products. Expanding  upon 
MDxHealth's PharmacoMDx  program, the  partnership aims  to provide  companion 
diagnostic solutions,  or theranostics,  to  pharmaceutical companies  in  the 
Japanese market. No financial terms have been disclosed.

"As the  global life  sciences  industry continues  to pair  diagnostics  with 
therapeutics to determine patient response,  we believe this partnership  with 
SPI will  provide  MDxHealth with  the  necessary leverage  and  expertise  to 
penetrate the Japanese market,"  stated Dr. Jan Groen,  CEO of MDxHealth.  "We 
look forward  to  working  closely with  the  SPI  team to  offer  our  unique 
epigenetic PharmacoMDx products and services to drug development companies."

MDxHealth's PharmacoMDx  team leverages  Next-Generation and  Deep  Sequencing 
technologies for  the identification  and  validation of  powerful  epigenetic 
biomarkers for novel therapeutics. Companion diagnostic assays are playing an
increasingly important role  in the  development process of  new compounds  as 
they can help  identify patients who  may benefit from  a new drug,  improving 
efficacy,  reducing  adverse  side   effects,  and  potentially   accelerating 
regulatory approval thereby helping pharma companies reduce the time and  cost 
associated with bringing new products to market.
