Press Release

MDxHealth Announces Service Agreement with Kaiser Southern California Permanente Medical Group


Posted on: 08 Aug 17

COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT / REGULATED INFORMATION / INSIDE INFORMATION      

IRVINE, CA, and HERSTAL, BELGIUM - 07:00 CEST, August 8, 2017 - MDxHealth SA (Euronext: MDXH.BR) today announced it has signed a health care services agreement with Southern California Permanente Medical Group to assess the performance of the ConfirmMDx® for Prostate Cancer test.

Southern California Permanente Medical Group* is a physician-led organization that serves the 4.4 million members of Kaiser Permanente Southern California.

About ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer

ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer is the first epigenetic, and only tissue-based test in the 2016 NCCN Guidelines for early detection of prostate cancer which addresses false negative biopsy concerns. It is the only molecular diagnostic test that provides a very high negative predictive value (NPV) of 96% for clinically significant prostate cancers, and 90% NPV for all prostate cancers, as well as prostate mapping of the test results to help guide repeat biopsies. Each year, more than 1 million American men undergo an invasive prostate biopsy with a negative result, however approximately 30% of those men have prostate cancer. The current standard of care for prostate biopsy procedures samples less than 1% of the prostate, leaving men at risk for undetected cancer and leading to a high rate of repeat biopsies, even on cancer-free men. ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer helps urologists identify low-risk men who may forego an unnecessary repeat biopsy and high-risk men who may benefit from intervention. ConfirmMDx has qualified for Medicare reimbursement and covered by numerous private health insurance plans.
