MDxHealth Provides Third Quarter 2012 Business Update

IRVINE, CA and LIEGE, BELGIUM -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- MDxHealth SA (EURONEXT BRUSSELS: MDXH), a leading molecular diagnostic company that develops and commercializes epigenetic tests to support cancer treatment, today published a business update for the third quarter ending September 30, 2012.

Highlights
In Q3 2012, MDxHealth made significant progress across all facets of its business. On July 4, 2012, the company raised EUR 10 million in new equity funding via a private placement. As of September 30, 2012, the company had EUR 13.9 million of cash on hand. Commercial product and service revenues in Q3 increased 142% compared to the same period last year, with total revenues of EUR 2.9 million in the first nine months of 2012, an increase of 90% versus the same period in 2011.

The commercial roll-out of ConfirmMDx™ for Prostate Cancer, launched at the end of May of this year, is advancing according to expectations. In July, MDxHealth signed a collaboration agreement with Merck KGaA for the development and worldwide commercialization of MDxHealth's MGMT diagnostic test, PredictMDx™ for Glioblastoma.

In August, the company received CAP (College of American Pathologists) accreditation, as well as licenses from Florida and Pennsylvania, for its CLIA reference laboratory in Irvine, CA.

"We are very pleased with the acceptance of the ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer test among the US urology community as evidenced by our sales growth. The rising market awareness and adoption of the ConfirmMDx test reflect increasing momentum of our sales and marketing efforts," said Dr. Jan Groen CEO of MDxHealth. "Based on the favorable market reception, it is clear that our epigenetic test provides urologists with valuable information to help address false-negative biopsy concerns with their patients. This early success gives me confidence that ConfirmMDx will also deliver value for the company and its shareholders."

Commercial revenues up 90% for the first 9 months

Revenues
The total revenues for the first nine months of the year amounted to EUR 2.9 million, of which EUR 2.1 million represent commercial revenues, up 90% compared to the same period last year.

Operating Expenses
The company's operating expenses were EUR 9.2 million in the first nine months of 2012, versus EUR 7.3 million in the same period in 2011, as the company continued to invest in the development of its product pipeline and sales and marketing activities in the US.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
