IRVINE, CA, and HERSTAL, BELGIUM - Jun 10, 2019 - MDxHealth SA (Euronext: MDXH.BR), a commercial-stage innovative molecular diagnostics company, today announced that a second clinical validation study demonstrating the performance of its liquid biopsy test SelectMDx for Prostate Cancer has been published in the The Journal of Urology.
In a clinical study of 1,955 men undergoing initial prostate biopsy, SelectMDx yielded a 95% negative predictive value and 93% sensitivity for the detection of clinically significant prostate cancer. These data support the use of SelectMDx to 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 demonstrate the clinical validity and value proposition of our SelectMDx test. We look forward to continued progress on the adoption and coverage of our SelectMDx test in both the U.S. and Europe," stated Michael McGarrity, CEO of MDxHealth.
