VolitionRx-led Consortium Awarded euro 780 000 ($1M approx.) Eurostars Grant
Date:9/3/2013

NAMUR, Belgium, Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VolitionRx Limited (OTC: VNRX), a life sciences company focused on developing blood-based diagnostic tests for different types of cancer, is lead partner of a consortium in a project valued at €779,493 (approx. US$1M) under the EUREKA Eurostars scheme. The project aims to develop new applications of the Nucleosomics biomarker technology in inflammatory disease. The research will build on VolitionRx's ongoing cancer diagnostic research program.

VolitionRx's contribution to the project is to develop novel NuQ® biomarkers for immune response. VolitionRx will use its proprietary Nucleosomics® platform for biomarker development exploiting UK-based Alcyomics' proprietary ex-vivo Skimmune™ model.

The Eurostars Programme is a European innovation program managed by EUREKA. It is the first program dedicated to supporting research-based small- and medium-sized companies (SMEs) from across Europe. To be eligible for the grant, companies must form a consortium of at least two companies from different European countries, with the aim of developing a civilian-purposed new product, process or service.

"The Eurostars scheme is a prestigious European program designed to support SMEs like VolitionRx, and to encourage cross-border research and development collaboration," says Mark Eccleston, VolitionRx's External Collaborations Manager. "We are looking forward to working with our partners to develop novel applications for our Nucleosomics technology, while complementing our ongoing research in cancer diagnostics."

Under the grant, VolitionRx will be reimbursed with 80% of the costs associated with its share of the joint project  - €420,000 ($0.56M approx.) over two years.
