Highlights for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2022

- The newly released NCCN for Prostate Cancer Guideline (Version 1.2023)* expands the indication for use of the GPS test to include high-risk patients with localized prostate cancer. This expanded criteria acknowledges the clinical utility of GPS and enables mdxhealth to more fully serve its targeted patient population
- Revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2022, increased by 114% to $12.9 million versus $6.0 million for the same period last year; excluding GPS, Q4-2022 revenue increased 15% to $6.9 million versus Q4-2021
- 2022 full year revenues increased by 67% to $37.1 million versus $22.2 million for 2021; excluding GPS, 2022 revenue increased 25% to $27.7 million versus 2021
- 2022 revenues were comprised of $21.8 million from Confirm mdx, $9.3 million from GPS, $4.9 million from Resolve mdx, with the remaining revenues from Select mdx and other
- Billable test volume for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2022, for Confirm mdx increased by 21% to 4,339 versus 3,598, and for Select mdx, decreased by 6% to 3,129 versus 3,346, for the same period last year
Michael K. McGarrity, CEO of mdxhealth, commented: “We are excited to report operating results which reflect the early impact of our focused strategy of delivering multiple drivers of growth. Core to our approach are test-menu augmentation, and a newly expanded sales channel to enable cross-selling of complementary solutions which address the most important prostate cancer diagnostic questions facing urologists and patients.
“We expect our menu of Confirm mdx and Select mdx (with its anticipated Medicare coverage), coupled with the addition of our GPS and Resolve mdx tests, to increase our revenues, improve our gross margins, and drive sustainable growth in the near and long term.”

In its technical assessment of competitive tests, UnitedHealthcare’s updated Medical Policy states that “the body of evidence consistently favors use of the GPS assay to assist with management strategies….” UnitedHealthcare’s coverage of GPS adds to positive coverage decisions by other national and regional commercial payers, as well as from Medicare and Medicare Advantage plans.
