GenWay Biotech obtains exclusive rights to AMDL's DR-70 cancer test in US and Canada
Date:5/15/2009

(San Diego, CA) May 15, 2009 GenWay Biotech, Inc., (www.genwaybio.com) a US-based diagnostic company which specializes in providing protein and antibody solutions, announced its partnership with AMDL, Inc., a US-based pharmaceutical company with major operations in China, regarding the distribution of AMDL's DR-70 (FDP) cancer test in both the United States and Canada. GenWay Biotech will be the exclusive distributor of the DR-70 test for general cancer screening by CLIA laboratories in the United States and for lung cancer screening in Canada. The commercialization efforts include raising awareness of the disease and demand creation for the test through multiple media channels and healthcare outreach. Both exclusive distribution agreements extend for five-years based on continuing success in both the Canadian and US markets.

The DR-70 cancer test has been approved by the US FDA for CRC monitoring and by Health Canada for Lung Cancer screening. However, a growing body of data reveals that the test is effective as a general cancer screen as well. The DR-70 ELISA assay quantifies Fibrin and Fibrinogen Degradation Products (FDP) in the blood, which are elevated in the presence of a malignant tumor and increase as the malignancy grows. International studies have linked the DR-70 cancer test to at least 14 different types of cancer, including lung, breast, stomach, liver, colon, rectal, ovarian, esophageal, cervical, trophoblastic, thyroid, malignant lymphoma, brain and pancreatic cancer making it one of the most versatile cancer biomarkers available.

The GenWay team is looking forward to the future impact of the DR-70 test in the field of cancer diagnostics. Robert Gans, CEO of GenWay Biotech Inc., says that, "The DR-70 cancer test can revolutionize the way people are able to easily screen their risk of cancer with a simple blood test. We are excited to play an instrumental role in advancing cancer
