 MdxHealth (TM) : MDxHealth's Prostate Cancer Test Approved by New York State
                             Department of Health



IRVINE, CA, and LIEGE, BELGIUM - 8:00  AM, July 10, 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 that the New York State Department of  Health 
(NYSDOH) has  certified  and  granted  approval  for  the  ConfirmMDx(TM)  for 
Prostate Cancer test. This  approval by NYSDOH  completes MDxHealth's list  of 
state licensures, allowing the Company to offer the test in all 50 states. The
ConfirmMDx for Prostate  Cancer test is  performed on tissue  obtained from  a 
previous negative  prostate biopsy  to help  distinguish patients  who have  a 
true-negative result and may forego an unnecessary repeat biopsy from those at
high risk for missed cancer.

"The NYSDOH approval  of the ConfirmMDx  for Prostate Cancer  test is a  major 
milestone for MDxHealth.  The Department's  independent technology  assessment 
for laboratory developed tests, which are also regulated at the federal level,
is widely  regarded as  the  most rigorous  review  process due  to  stringent 
quality standards. With the New  York State approval and clinical  laboratory 
license, ConfirmMDx  for Prostate  Cancer  is now  available to  patients  and 
urologists throughout  the  U.S.  This  licensure opens  one  of  our  largest 
potential domestic markets within the U.S., with an estimated 65,000  prostate 
biopsy procedures performed  annually." said Dr.  Jan Groen, MDxHealth's  CEO. 
"The NYSDOH approval completes our state licensing requirements and allows  us 
to fully execute on  our U.S. commercialization  strategy for this  clinically 
significant prostate cancer test."

About ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer
Over 975,000 American men receive a negative prostate biopsy result each year;
though approximately 25% of these men may still harbor occult prostate cancer.
This  well-documented  risk  of  undetected  cancer,  often  with   clinically 
significant Gleason  scores, leads  to a  high rate  of repeat  biopsies  with 
greater than  40%  of men  receiving  at least  one  repeat biopsy,  and  many 
receiving a 3^rd and 4^th biopsy. Today's gold standard diagnostic approach is
the prostate biopsy  procedure, collecting 10-12  needle core biopsy  samples; 
however this sampling represents less than 1% of a man's prostate.  ConfirmMDx 
for Prostate  Cancer is  an epigenetic  assay to  help urologists  distinguish 
patients who have a true-negative biopsy from those at risk for occult cancer.
The test is  able to detect  an epigenetic field  effect or "halo"  associated 
with the cancerization process at the DNA level. This molecular "halo"  around 
a cancer lesion can  be present despite having  a normal appearance under  the 
microscope. The test helps urologists  rule out prostate cancer-free men  from 
undergoing unnecessary repeat biopsies and rule in high-risk patients who  may 
require repeat biopsies and potential treatment.
