Company to Host Webcast on July 12 at 4.00pm ET
BERKELEY, Calif. and MAINZ, Germany, July 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mainz Biomed N.V. (NASDAQ:MYNZ) (“Mainz Biomed” or the “Company”), a molecular genetics diagnostic company specializing in the early detection of cancer, is pleased to host a webcast on July 12, 2022 at 4:00pm ET to provide an update on the Company’s progress for the first half of 2022, and to outline the plan for the balance of the fiscal year.
The webcast will offer the investment community a comprehensive briefing by Mainz’s executive management team on the Company’s flagship product ColoAlert, a highly efficacious, and easy-to-use detection test for colorectal cancer (CRC) which is being commercialized internationally through a differentiated business model of partnering with third-party laboratories for test kit processing versus the traditional methodology of operating a single facility. The presentation will also include an update on the status of ColoAlert’s U.S. regulatory approval pathway, the ongoing R&D efforts to potentially upgrade ColoAlert’s technical profile to achieve “gold standard” status for CRC at-home testing, an overview of additional products in development, and the Company’s go-forward strategy to facilitate growth.
“Given the progress achieved over the past six months across all aspects of the company, the management and Board thought it was appropriate to host this interactive forum to provide an overall update on progress, especially in light of our recent transition to the public sector this past November,” commented Guido Baechler, Chief Executive Officer of Mainz Biomed. “We look forward to providing a detailed presentation covering ColoAlert’s commercial execution and clinical development status along with commentary on the balance of the product development pipeline, and our overall strategy to become a leading oncology focused diagnostic company.”

ColoAlert detects colorectal cancer (CRC) via a simple-to-administer test with a sensitivity and specificity nearly as high as the invasive colonoscopy*. The test utilizes proprietary methods to analyze cell DNA for specific tumor markers combined with the fecal immunochemical test (FIT) and is designed to detect tumor DNA and CRC cases in their earliest stages. The product is CE-IVD marked (complying with EU safety, health and environmental requirements) and is transitioning to compliance with IVDR. The product is commercially available in a selection of countries in the European Union. Mainz Biomed currently distributes ColoAlert through a number of clinical affiliates. Once approved in the U.S., the Company’s commercial strategy is to establish scalable distribution through a collaborative partner program with regional and national laboratory service providers across the country.

About Colorectal Cancer
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most lethal cancer in the U.S. and Europe, but also the most preventable with early detection providing survival rates above 90%. Annual testing costs per patient are minimal, especially when compared to late-stage treatments of CRC which cost patients an average of $38,469 per year. The American Cancer Society estimated that in 2021 there were approximately 149,500 new cases of colon and rectal cancer in the U.S. with 52,980 resulting in death. Recent FDA decisions suggest that screening with stool DNA tests such as ColoAlert in the US should be conducted once every three years starting at age 45. Currently, there are 112 million Americans aged 50+, a total that is expected to increase to 157 million within 10 years. Appropriately testing these US-based 50+ populations every three years as prescribed equates to a US market opportunity of approximately $3.7 Billion per year.
