IRVINE, Calif. and HERSTAL, Belgium, June 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- MDxHealth SA (Euronext: MDXH.BR), a commercial-stage innovative molecular diagnostics company, today announced positive data, published in The Journal of Urology, from a second clinical validation study of its liquid biopsy test SelectMDx for Prostate Cancer.
SelectMDx is a non-invasive urine test that measures the expression of two mRNA cancer-related biomarkers and provides results to help physicians determine whether a patient may benefit from a biopsy and early prostate detection or avoid a biopsy and return to routine screening. These new data support that SelectMDx may help physicians determine which patients are at risk of aggressive prostate cancer and help guide initial prostate biopsy decisions.
"The publication of these compelling data clearly demonstrates the clinical validity and value proposition of our SelectMDx test," said Michael McGarrity, CEO of MDxHealth. "We look forward to the continued progress on the adoption and coverage of our SelectMDx test in both the United States and in Europe."
Multicenter Optimization and Validation of a 2-Gene mRNA Urine Test for Detection of Clinically Significant Prostate Cancer Prior to Initial Prostate Biopsy
Summary: In a clinical study of 1,955 men undergoing initial prostate biopsies, SelectMDx yielded a 95% negative predictive value and 93% sensitivity for the detection of clinically significant prostate cancer.
