Activity description
The 3 top equipments available

Leveraging its patented MSP methylation technology, MDxHealth is developing and commercializing a robust pipeline of prognostic and predictive molecular diagnostic products for multiple cancer types. Through its network of clinical collaborations, the company is commercializing these tests to improve patient outcomes and lower healthcare costs.
For each cancer type, the company will offer a combination of different assays:

ConfirmMDx – Our “Confirm” products will serve as an aid for physicians to assess DNA methylation status associated with presence or absence of cancer.

InformMDx – Our “Inform” products will provide prognostic assessment to distinguish between aggressive and non-aggressive tumors.

PredictMDx – Our “Predict” products will provide predictive information to indicate which drug or treatment regimen is likely to be most effective for the individual patient.

Know-how, expertise available

MDxHealth’s Clinical Molecular Diagnostics (ClinicalMDx) business is focused on providing physicians with innovative and meaningful assays that aid in the identification and treatment of their cancer patients.
MDxHealth’s ClinicalMDx strategy is to develop and commercialize advanced epigenetic tests through its U.S.-based CLIA-accredited, CAP-certified laboratory facility. The ClinicalMDx business also includes epigenetic products commercialized by our partners and third party sublicensees.

MDxHealth’s ClinicalMDx portfolio is divided into three primary categories including diagnostic, prognostic and predictive molecular diagnostic tests for multiple cancer types.  These tests are designed to address current diagnostic dilemmas faced by clinicians and will deliver actionable results to help improve patient management decisions.

Terms of availability for SMEs

To establish a regional central state of the art molecular pathology service laboratory (project name HistoHealth). This central laboratory will provide innovative molecular diagnostic services as well as the traditional histopathology service, including imaging, quantification and tumor profiling to all the hospitals in the area. The big advantage of this would be that the latest new available oncology assays can be offered to the physicians to provide better treatment for their patients. With a focus on precision medicine within oncology many of the cancer specific diagnostic assays are expensive to be implemented in each local pathology laboratory. Centralizing these type of services will be extremely cost efficient.
This newly established molecular pathology lab will also provide high level clinical trial services for pharmaceutical companies.
in Summary
- A central molecular pathology laboratory is the only efficient options for the future
- Histohealth will become a knowledge center
- Histohealth will become a roll model within the Netherlands
- Histohealth will generate new high level jobs for the region
- Histohealth will contribute to cost savings within healthcare.
