Under the terms of the agreement, the Licence exclusively grants NSDA the right to use Oxford BioDynamics' proprietary products and reagents, provided through the Company's EpiSwitch™technology platform, for breast cancer patients stratification. NSDA will be solely responsible for completing the regulatory approval process and commercialisation activities of the breast cancer test within 13 territories in Asia. In return, Oxford BioDynamics will receive an upfront licensing payment, royalties on sales of the test and fees on the achievement of certain material undisclosed milestones.

'Our proprietary EpiSwitch™technology will be instrumental in the development of this novel blood-based test that will assist in the diagnosis of breast cancer in the Asian population. This latest EpiSwitchlicence agreement will generate royalty and milestone fees for the Company. This agreement further demonstrates the broad application potential of OBD's technology.'
