Date:12/4/2012

MONTCLAIR, N.J., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MetaStat, Inc. ("MetaStat" or the "Company") (OTCBB: MTST), a life science company focused on understanding and treating systemic metastasis, today announced that John S. Condeelis, Ph.D., Chairman of MetaStat's Scientific Advisory Board, and Joan Jones, M.D., a member of MetaStat's Clinical Advisory Board, will be presenting data on the Company's licensed metastatic breast cancer markers at the CTRC-AACR 2012 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium on December 4-8, 2012, in San Antonio, Texas.

About MetaStat, Inc.

MetaStat was formed to help cancer patients benefit from recent discoveries in how cancer spreads through the bloodstream to other organs in the body in a process called metastasis. We believe our MetaSite Breast™ and MenaCalc™ diagnostic product lines will accurately predict the probability of cancer metastasizing. They are intended to allow clinicians to better "customize" cancer treatment decisions by positively identifying and differentiating high-risk patients who need aggressive therapy and by sparing low-risk patients from the harmful side effects and expense of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapies. Furthermore, we believe our MenaCalc™ diagnostic platform may be applicable in up to 80% of all solid epithelial cancers, including breast, prostate, lung and colorectal, which account for over 50% of all new cancer cases in the U.S. each year. As such, we believe our diagnostic products represent a significant breakthrough for cancer patients and their doctors because 90% of all solid tumor cancer deaths are due from metastasis.

Additionally, we believe our MenaBloc™ technology provides us with targets of intervention in key pathways for the development of targeted therapeutics that may preemptively reduce or eliminate metastasis in these tumor types.

Our technology platform(s) and corresponding products are the result of over 15 years of collaboration involving four scientific/academic institutions. We believe we are unique and differentiated in the marketplace. Our discoveries are based on direct microscopic visualization of living, functioning tumors in vivo, which enabled us to specifically isolate and thus characterize the behavior, genetics and mechanics of these highly metastatic cells.
