ISNES, Belgium, November 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- VolitionRx Limited (NYSE American: VNRX) today announced financial results and a business update for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017.

Mr. Cameron Reynolds, President and Chief Executive Officer of Volition, said, “We have made fantastic progress this quarter, moving our clinical product development strongly forward in Asia, Europe and the U.S, and broadening our potential revenue base with our recently announced research kit sales. We have further expanded our talented scientific team, with four new hires to the R&D team, financially supported by the local government in Belgium.” Mr. Reynolds added, “We continue to announce large trials at very affordable costs in our efforts to gain worldwide adoption of our products. We look forward to achieving our upcoming clinical and commercial milestones, while continuing to keep close control on our cash burn, which has remained relatively stable.”

 

Third Quarter 2017 and Recent Company Highlights

 

Clinical

 

As the cornerstone of our frontline screening colorectal cancer test for the all-important U.S. market, we entered into an agreement to participate in a large, multi-center study with the Great Lakes New England Clinical Validation Center, funded by the U.S. National Cancer Institute’s Early Detection Research Network. 

 

oThe objective is to validate Volition’s Nu.Q™ Colorectal Cancer Screening Test in a large, asymptomatic population for U.S. regulatory purposes. 

oThe study provides approximately 13,500 asymptomatic screening samples of people aged 50 or over who have not previously undergone screening or a diagnostic colonoscopy. 

oThe study will come at a cost of no more than $3 million, paid in equal, quarterly installments. 

 

Intellectual Property

 

We secured four additional patents, in the U.S., Europe, Mexico and Australia, further solidifying Volition’s intellectual property portfolio worldwide.  

 

oThe patents are complementary to those previously granted. Volition now has 5 granted patents in the U.S. and 8 more patents in other territories. 

 

Operational

 

In line with our goals to best utilize our Nucleosomics® platform and to broaden our revenue base, we announced the initial order of a bespoke Nu.QTM clinical research use only kit from a large multi-national pharmaceutical company together with plans to launch a range of Nucleosomics® clinical research use only kits in the first half of 2018.  

 

oThe kits based on our proprietary Nucleosomics® technology are expected to:  

 

allow researchers to explore patterns of epigenetic modifications in circulating nucleosomes across a broad range of clinical applications including cancers, inflammatory and infectious diseases. The kits can be used for many purposes, for example as an aid to drug development and treatment selection.  

represent the first revenue from the Nu.QTM platform and potentially provide an additional licensing revenue stream beyond the commercialization of our blood-based cancer tests on the same platform of assays. 

 

We commenced a project to investigate the use of Nucleosomics® to purify or enrich nucleosomes from cancer. This aims to provide purified circulating tumor DNA to help address the main technology barrier in this emergent field of cancer diagnostics. 

 

We were awarded $1.5 million in non-dilutive funding from SOFINEX and the Walloon Region of Belgium, bringing the total amount of non-dilutive funding from various agencies in the region to nearly $2.5 million.
