    About DiagnoCure

    DiagnoCure (TSX: CUR) is a life sciences company commercializing
high-value cancer diagnostic tests and delivering laboratory services that
increase clinician and patient confidence in making critical treatment
decisions. DiagnoCure Oncology Laboratories, a subsidiary of DiagnoCure Inc.,
launched in 2008 the Previstage(TM) GCC Colorectal Cancer Staging Test, the
first GCC-based molecular test for the management of colorectal cancer. A
major study published in the February 18, 2009, edition of the JAMA ("Journal
of the American Medical Association") demonstrated that GCC, to which
DiagnoCure secured exclusive worldwide diagnostic rights, is the strongest
independent predictor of colorectal cancer recurrence. The Company has a
strategic alliance with Gen-Probe (NASDAQ:   GPRO) for the development and
commercialization of a second-generation prostate cancer test using PCA3,
DiagnoCure's proprietary molecular marker. This test is also available through
laboratories in the U.S. using PCA3 analyte specific reagents (ASR) from
Gen-Probe, in Europe as the CE-marked PROGENSA(TM) PCA3 in vitro assay, and in
Canada. In addition to its own research, the Company intends to acquire or
in-license additional promising cancer biomarkers from both academic and
commercial institutions. For more information, visit www.diagnocure.com.
