原文Epigenomics and BioChain Announce Approval of Epi proColon in China

Epigenomics AG (Frankfurt Prime Standard: ECX, OTCQX: EPGNY), the German-American cancer molecular diagnostics company, and BioChain, a leading clinical diagnostics company in cancer and genetic testing in China and the U.S.A., announced today that the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) approved Epi proColon for commercialization in China. Epi proColon is Epigenomics' non-invasive blood-based diagnostic test for colorectal cancer (CRC) detection based on the Septin9 DNA methylation marker.

The approval was based on a major clinical validation study completed by BioChain in April 2014, which confirmed the previously demonstrated positive clinical performance of Epi proColon. While detecting 75% of all cancer cases at 97.5% specificity in the Chinese study, this test has the potential to become an important tool for medical professionals in establishing and expanding CRC detection in this country. The availability of CRC screening based on a blood sample will enable higher patient participation in detection of CRC as a means to reduce later stage disease and the associated costs. Epigenomics' partner in China网上网投正规靠谱平台真人线上城, BioChain, expects to launch the product within the next weeks into the Chinese market through their established distribution channels and is currently preparing its market launch throughout the country.

James Wang, Chairman of BioChain, commented: "We are delighted by the CFDA approval of Epi proColon which is a key milestone for our company, allowing us to address colorectal cancer detection in China with this highly innovative product. We believe this product with high sensitivity, specificity and expected compliance will benefit the Chinese people and society. These benefits will not only be seen in the way of providing an early diagnostic tool to lower the CRC morbidity and mortality and reduce the cost in CRC prevention and therapy, but also by way of emphasizing the importance of early screening, diagnosis and intervention, therefore enhancing the health of all Chinese people. We thank Epigenomics for the excellent support provided during the approval process and we now look forward to bringing this effective and non-invasive option to the people eligible for CRC screening in our country."
