MDS Makes Three-Year Commitment to the International Union Against Cancer

TORONTO, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - MDS Inc. (TSX: MDS; NYSE: MDZ), a leading provider of products and services to the global life sciences markets, declared its increased commitment to the fight against cancer today designating it as MDS' major charitable cause. MDS has launched employee awareness and fundraising events around the world and announced a donation of nearly $1 million over the next three years to the International Union Against Cancer (UICC).

MDS chose UICC, the world's largest non-governmental association of cancer-fighting organizations, because of its global mission to fight the disease. With the support of partners like MDS, UICC acts as a resource for action and a voice for change through prevention education programs, research projects, and other initiatives that can make a real difference in saving lives and improving the quality of life for cancer patients and their families throughout the world.

"We are thrilled to support the work of the International Union Against Cancer," said Stephen P. DeFalco, President and Chief Executive Officer of MDS Inc. "We have great employees at MDS who are committed to this fight both as a company and as individuals, not only on World Cancer Day but every day they come to work."

Each year, more than 11 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed and more than 7 million people die from cancer. Through its life sciences businesses, MDS wages a fight against cancer every day:

- MDS has identified oncology as a focus area of clinical research

activity and conducts cancer studies around the world as part of its

full set of contract research services.

- MDS partners with pharma and biotech customers using its isotope

technologies to develop new radiotherapeutics to treat cancers like

non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and primary liver cancer.
