Cancer

IRVINE, Calif.  and  HERSTAL,  Belgium,  April 2,  2014  (GLOBE  NEWSWIRE)  -- 
MDxHealth SA (NYSE  Euronext: MDXH),  a leading  molecular diagnostic  company 
that develops and commercializes epigenetic tests to improve the diagnosis and
treatment of  cancer patients,  today announced  that it  has entered  into  a 
co-marketing agreement with LI PATH  (Long Island Pathology, Inc.) to  promote 
MDxHealth's ConfirmMDx^®  for Prostate  Cancer test.  LI PATH  is a  high-end, 
full-service independent  anatomic  and  clinical  pathology  laboratory  that 
serves the New York City metropolitan area. The agreement expands MDxHealth's
access to urologists in the highly populated New York and New Jersey region.

"Our goal is to be the premier laboratory serving the urology community in the
New York City area,  and offering the most  advanced molecular testing to  our 
urology clients is  an important part  of that equation,"  stated Ken  Cerney, 
Chief Executive Officer of LI PATH. "The ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer test
provides actionable information to help urologists better stratify patients at
risk for undetected prostate cancer and guide the decision for repeat  biopsy. 
The addition ConfirmMDx  to our portfolio  of tests enhances  our ability  to 
serve our clients."

"We are excited to announce our strategic partnership with LI PATH, recognized
as a  leading anatomic  and  clinical pathology  laboratory  in the  New  York 
metropolitan region. With their extensive client base and strong  reputation, 
the partnership further expands access  to our ConfirmMDx for Prostate  Cancer 
test within this  important geographic  region," said  Dr. Jan  Groen, CEO  of 
MDxHealth. "It is rewarding to  partner with progressive thinking  laboratory 
professionals like LI PATH, who are focused on leveraging molecular diagnostic
tests to deliver the highest quality patient care."

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 3rd and 4th 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.
