Date:9/26/2007

AMSTERDAM, September 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Agendia BV, a world leader in the rapidly evolving field of cancer molecular diagnostics, announces that it has joint the US-based Personalized Medicine Coalition (PMC).

"The PMC is playing a key role in shaping the US public policy on personalized medicine. We are very pleased to be a member of a group that will dramatically impact the treatment of patients in the future. After we got both our first IVDMIA product, MammaPrint(R), as well as our logistical sampling and shipping procedure, RNARetain(R)(1), cleared by the FDA we believe it is now time to actively participate in the discussion about the implementation of personalized medicine in the US", said Dr. Bernhard Sixt, CEO of Agendia BV.

Edward Abrahams, Executive Director of the PMC, welcomed the addition of the Netherlands-based personalized medicine company: "We very much look forward to Agendia's involvement in PMC's activities, in particular its participation in our efforts to shape an appropriate regulatory pathway for personalized medicine products."

About PMC

The Personalized medicine coalition was publicly launched in November 2004 by more than a dozen leading pharmaceutical, biotechnology, diagnostics and information technology companies, along with major academic centres and governmental agencies. An independent, non-profit group dedicated to advancing the understanding and adoption of personalized medicine concepts and products for the benefit of patients, it represents over 100 members. The Coalition seeks to promote discussion and understanding that will lead to the development of sound public policy on matters that affect the realization of personalized medicine.
