REHOVOT, Israel, June 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Todos Medical Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF), a clinical-stage in-vitro-diagnostics company focused on the development of blood tests for the early detection of cancer and neurodegenerative disorders, today announced that it will be sponsoring the Investacure ‘Cure Coin Awards Reception’ on Monday, July 15, 2019, at 7 p.m. at The Association, 110 East 6th Street, in downtown Los Angeles, CA. The reception is being hosted to honor researchers in Alzheimer’s and CTE who are working to turn scientific discoveries into clinical interventions that could alter the course of those two devastating neurodegenerative diseases.

About LymPro Test
The Lymphocyte Proliferation Test (LymPro Test) is a diagnostic blood test that determines the ability of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) and monocytes to withstand an exogenous mitogenic stimulation that induces them to enter the cell cycle. Certain diseases, most notably Alzheimer's disease and potentially Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), are the result of compromised cellular machinery that leads to aberrant cell cycle re-entry by neurons which then leads to apoptosis. LymPro is unique in the use of peripheral blood lymphocytes as a surrogate for neuronal cell function, suggesting a common relationship between PBLs and neurons in the brain.
About TM-B1 Breast Cancer Blood Test
The TM-B1 assay is indicated for women aged 25 years and older without a diagnosis of inflammatory disease. The assay is intended to be used as a diagnostic method to indicate whether or not a breast malignancy is present. TM-B1results are initially intended to be used in conjunction with other common diagnostic tests as part of breast cancer screening.
About TM-B2 Breast Cancer Blood Test
The TM-B2 assay is indicated for women who meet the following criteria: Female subjects, aged 25 years and older, without a diagnosis of inflammatory or autoimmune disease and who were diagnosed as presenting with BI-RADS score of 3 or 4 (or equivalent). TM-B2 is to be used to further assess if a malignancy is present or not. TM-B2 results are initially intended to be used in conjunction with other common diagnostic tests as part of breast cancer screening.
