MDxHealth announces positive results on MGMT test.

(SeeNews) - Jul 11, 2011 - Belgian-based biotechnology company MDxHealth (EBR:ONCOB), former Oncomethylome Sciences, said today a study on its MGMT test for brain cancer has proved its efficacy.

The MGMT test has shown to be the only prognostic factor for overall survival in newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) patients over the age of 70, the company added. A prognostic factor is a biological marker that helps determine the course and outcome of a disease. The results were published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

"This study confirms the results of a steadily increasing number of clinical trial reports that support the importance of MDxHealth's PredictMDx for Brain test in clinical decision making", CEO Jan Groen said.
