VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- Med BioGene Inc. (TSX VENTURE: MBI) today reported its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014 (all amounts are in United States dollars).

First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

During the three months ended March 31, 2014, MBI recorded a net loss of $72,821 (2013 - $78,414), which consists of general and administrative expenses.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses consist of personnel costs, consulting and directors' fees, professional fees, public company costs and communications, facilities and office operations expenses.

General and administrative expenses were $72,821 for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to $78,414 for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2014 are comparable to the three months ended March 31, 2013 because during the past two years MBI has been focused on managing the license and rights to GeneFx® Lung granted to Precision Therapeutics, Inc.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At March 31, 2014, MBI had cash and equivalents totalling $129,409 and working capital of $40,842 compared to cash and equivalents of $181,507 and a working capital of $112,624 at December 31, 2013.

Cash used in operating activities was $52,098 for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to $63,601 for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

Under MBI and Precision's commercialization agreement, MBI is eligible to receive from Precision up to $1.0 million in the following milestone payments, all of which are credited against future royalties that may be owed to MBI by Precision: following the commercial launch of GeneFx Lung, amounts totaling $500,000 and, following the achievement of $5 million in net revenues from GeneFx Lung, amounts totaling $500,000.

As a result of MBI's current cash position, management has decreased their compensation to provide an extended runway to the anticipated commercialization of GeneFx Lung and receipt from Precision of the $500,000 milestone payment noted above.

About GeneFx Lung

GeneFx Lung is a proprietary gene expression-based test to improve upon staging for identifying those patients with early-stage non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who, following surgical removal of their tumor, are at higher and lower risks of mortality. In an initial study of patient specimens from the National Cancer Institute of Canada Clinical Trials Group JBR.10 trial, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, patients classified by GeneFx Lung as high risk benefited from adjuvant chemotherapy, and those classified as low risk did not benefit and may have experienced a detrimental effect from adjuvant chemotherapy. In the same study, GeneFx Lung was validated in predicting patient mortality in four independent studies involving data from tumor specimens totaling 375 untreated early-stage NSCLC patients. As published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology, GeneFx Lung was also independently validated in a prospective and blinded manner in predicting patient mortality in a study of 181 specimens from untreated NSCLC patients. GeneFx Lung is expected to provide better-informed and personalized treatment decisions to assist in the selection of patients for adjuvant chemotherapy.

On April 15, 2011, Precision and MBI closed their commercialization, license and research reimbursement agreement. The agreement provides to Precision exclusive global rights to develop and commercialize GeneFx Lung.
