REHOVOT, Israel, Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Todos Medical, Ltd. Inc. (OTCQB:TOMDF) (, a clinical-stage in-vitro diagnostics company focused on the development of blood tests for the early detection of cancer, announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted to Todos Medical two patents for broader claims for its inventions.

The patent covers Todos Medical’s innovative TBIA (Total Biochemical Infrared Analysis) technology applied to differentiate between benign and malignant tumors. This is an application regarding (i) analysis of an IR spectrum of a PBMC sample to indicate the presence of a benign tumor in breast tissue and in the gastrointestinal tract, and (ii) analysis of an IR spectrum of a blood plasma sample to indicate the presence of a benign tumor. The Company believes that this patent is an important milestone in protecting the Company’s technology and in strengthening the Company’s position as a leader in its field. 

The above-mentioned patents are in addition to the original patent that the Company received on August 1, 2017 (patent 9,719,937 B2). That patent relates to analysis of an IR spectrum of a blood plasma sample to indicate the presence of a solid tumor in the gastrointestinal tract.
