Published

Conference call to discuss financial and operational results scheduled for Tuesday, March 26 at 8:30 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time

HENDERSON, Nev., March 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- VolitionRx Limited (NYSE AMERICAN: VNRX) ("Volition"), a multi-national epigenetics company, today announced financial results and a business update for the full fiscal year ended December 31, 2023. Volition management will host a conference call tomorrow, March 26 at 8:30 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time to discuss these results. Conference call details can be found below.

Cameron Reynolds, President and Group Chief Executive Officer of Volition said: "2023 was certainly transformational for Volition and a year we can look back on with pride. The commercialization of our Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Test within the companion animal healthcare sector resulted in kits and components for over 58,000 tests being sold in 2023 and has led to agreements with several new global and regional partners including, last week, with Fujifilm Vet Systems, Japan's leading veterinary diagnostic service provider. Looking just around the corner, the Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Test will soon be available as an in-house diagnostic test through Heska Corporation, an Antech company.

"I am very happy with the progress made in our Nu.Q® NETs pillar and in particular in determining our regulatory pathway forward with the U.S. FDA - a key milestone for the company - and in having a number of large-scale clinical studies due for publication later this year.

"I am also absolutely delighted with our breakthrough cancer detection method, Capture-PCR™, for which we presented a poster at the annual congress of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) in the fourth quarter of 2023. We believe that this is a true breakthrough moment – the first reported physical isolation of a class of tumor-derived ctDNA fragments from blood.

"We are focused on getting each of our several pillars of focus to support itself, either through product revenues, milestone payments, out-licensing or other non-dilutive funding in the coming year, as we have achieved in our Vet pillar. This is to ensure as little dilution as possible to reach profitability as a company.

"We have had a busy start to 2024 and look forward to delivering on some exciting milestones ahead, in particular publishing new data for Nu.Q® NETs and for our potential breakthrough cancer detection method, Capture-PCR™."
