MDxHealth

The agreement grants MDxHealth the rights to manufacture and market the phosphodiesterase-4D7 biomarker as a prognostic test.

The firm said total test volumes rose 55 percent during the quarter, and test volumes for its SelectMDx liquid biopsy test nearly tripled in Europe.

The companies will co-fund a new study of the 3DS technology, and MDxHealth will have the option to exclusively license the telomere-based test.

The Fondazione Luigi Maria Monti - Istituto Dermopatico dell' Immacolata research hospital in Rome will perform SelectMDx testing locally.

Excluding the sale of the company's colorectal cancer patents to Exact Sciences, its 2017 revenues rose 13 percent.

UgenTec will develop artificially intelligent software to support interpretation of MDxHealth's ConfirMDx and SelectMDx molecular prostate cancer tests.

The company expects to see lower growth in products and services due to timing issues in obtaining billable cases from contracted customers.

Under the terms of the five-year deal, pharmaceutical company Ferrer will sell SelectMDx test directly to urologists in Spain.

Excluding revenues from the sale of MDxHealth's colorectal cancer patents to Exact Sciences, total revenues increased approximately 3 percent for the period.
