BioView Ltd, (TASE: BIOV) and Kindstar Global (Kindstar) today announced that the Companies have signed an agreement under which Kindstar will have an exclusive license to validate and implement BioView's Lung Cancer FISH test for an aid in early detection of Lung Cancer in its clinical laboratories.

Under the terms of the agreement Kindstar will purchase equipment and kits from BioView and will have an exclusive license to perform the test in China, Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan. This agreement follows a successful Pilot Study done by Kindstar using the BioView assay. The agreement is for 3 years and can be automatically renewed if certain criteria are met.

The BioView Lung Cancer test analyzes sputum samples from subjects with a high risk for Lung Cancer using BioView's proprietary Target FISH technology. The test has shown a high concordance of results in several clinical studies.

The Dr. Alan Schwebel CEO of BioView: "This is a significant and important milestone for BioView. China and the other Countries covered in this agreement, which are among those having the highest incidence of Lung Cancer in the world, will be the first to have the BioView test available to aid in the early detection of Lung Cancer. We are honored to have the opportunity to partner with Global Kindstar which is one of the leading laboratories for esoteric testing in China. This agreement will be used as a model to offer the BioView Lung Cancer test in other Countries worldwide."

Dr. Shiang Huang, Founder and CEO of Kindstar said: "Kindstar is excited to offer services in China based on the BioView Target-FISH technology as an aid for the early detection of Lung Cancer. This test has promise to become a valuable diagnostic and prognostic tool for determining the risk of lung cancer for many patients, but particularly for smokers and will help broaden Kindstar's oncology test menu offering. We are excited to partner with BioView, a known leader in scanning and imaging of FISH assays."
