MDxHealth (R): MDxHealth Announces Agreement with HIFU CLINIC Prostate Cancer Center for Distribution of SelectMDx in Poland

Further broadens reach of SelectMDx(TM) for Prostate Cancer in Europe

IRVINE, CA, and HERSTAL, BELGIUM
- October 19, 2016 -MDxHealthSA (Euronext: MDXH.BR) a multinational healthcare
company that provides actionable epigenetic information to personalize the
diagnosis and treatment of urologic cancers, today announced an agreement
with the HIFU CLINIC Prostate Cancer Center (HIFU CLINIC) for distribution of
its SelectMDx(TM) for Prostate Cancer liquid biopsy assay throughout Poland.
HIFU CLINIC will be the second distributor of SelectMDx in Poland.

Marek Filipek, MD, PhD, HIFU CLINIC Medical Director, stated:
"Bringing the SelectMDx assay to the Polish market is a turning point in
providing an advanced prostate cancer diagnostic decision tool that is both
sensitive and specific to Polish Patients and their Physicians. The
well-validated, non-invasive SelectMDx liquid biopsy test stands out in a
growing field of yet unproven tools. Early identification of patients at risk
for clinically significant prostate cancer is the key to accurate patient
selection for prostate biopsy, with likely benefit to long term clinical
outcomes."

"We are very pleased to announce our collaboration with HIFU CLINIC, whose
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) Clinic is the first and only Polish
center dedicated entirely to the comprehensive diagnostics and modern
treatment of prostate cancer. SelectMDx will perfectly complement HIFU
CLINIC's cutting edge diagnostic methods and procedures,"commented
Dr. Jan Groen, CEO of MDxHealth.
"We believe this key partnership will help us improve awareness and widen
access to SelectMDx throughout Poland."

About SelectMDx for Prostate Cancer

Of the nearly 2 million prostate biopsies performed each year, less than a
third find cancer. Most of these men could have avoided a painful and
invasive prostate biopsy procedure, with its associated complications and
costs. SelectMDx for Prostate Cancer is a proprietary urine-based, molecular
diagnostic test that offers a non-invasive 'liquid biopsy' method to assess a
man's risk for prostate cancer. SelectMDx helps identify men at increased
risk of harbouring aggressive, potentially lethal, prostate cancer who may
benefit most from a prostate biopsy and earlier detection. The test delivers
a negative predictive value (NPV) of 98% for clinically significant disease,
helping to reduce unnecessary MRI procedures and invasive prostate biopsies
by approximately 50%, thereby reducing healthcare costs.
