Armune BioScience to Participate in MultiPlan’s Networks, Expanding Access to APIFINY
Date:4/5/2016

Armune BioScience, an emerging leader in cancer diagnostics, has recently completed a national Ancillary Service Agreement with MultiPlan, Inc.

Under the new Agreement, APIFINY® will participate in the PHCS Network, MultiPlan’s national primary network, the MultiPlan Network, MultiPlan’s national complementary network, and ValuePoint by MultiPlan®, a national discount card network used by individuals responsible for paying their own healthcare bills. MultiPlan is the nation’s oldest and largest supplier of independent, network based cost management solutions, with an estimated 68 million consumers accessing its networks.

Launched in the United States in April of 2015, APIFINY is the only cancer specific, non-PSA blood test available to aid clinicians in the risk assessment for the presence of prostate cancer. APIFINY order volume exceeded 5,000 tests in its first year on the market. Primary care physicians and urologists have utilized APIFINY to help move beyond PSA based testing to assess prostate cancer risk.

“We look forward to working with MultiPlan and making APIFINY available to their clients’ healthcare members. Securing a contract with MultiPlan is another example of the potential game-changing clinical and economic value that APIFINY offers,” said David A. Esposito, President and CEO of Armune BioScience. “Given the current concerns of PSA testing throughout the world, APIFINY is well positioned to offer clinicians additional information in the assessment of prostate cancer risk. In addition, we are confident that APIFINY will help to address our healthcare system’s demand for improved outcomes at lower costs.”

APIFINY was developed based on innovative research into the immune system’s response to cancer conducted at the University of Michigan. Armune is currently expanding testing throughout the United States and preparing to launch APIFINY in several markets worldwide. Armune recently retained Mavericks Capital as the company’s advisor and investment bank.
