Company Information/New Products/Molecular Diagnostics

Berlin, Germany, and Seattle, WA, U.S.A. (euro adhoc) - Epigenomics AG
(Frankfurt Prime Standard: ECX), the German-American cancer molecular
diagnostics company, announced today that the United States Food & Drug
Administration (FDA) accepted its Premarket Approval (PMA) application for Epi
proColon®. The agency concluded that all information needed for the substantive
review is included and has granted priority review status to the application.
Epi proColon® is Epigenomics' blood-based test for the detection of colorectal
cancer (CRC).

In December 2012, Epigenomics successfully completed its head-to-head
comparative study. Subsequently, the PMA submission was submitted to FDA by the
end of that year. The application is now under substantive review by the
agency.

Dr. Thomas Taapken, Chief Financial Officer and acting Chief Executive Officer
of Epigenomics, commented: "After the encouraging results from our final
clinical trial and the completion of our PMA submission late last year, we are
very pleased that the agency has filed the application and has granted the
priority review status to the application. We are now anticipating a productive
dialog with FDA. While we await the final decision from the regulators, we
continue to actively plan for commercialization. We look forward to potentially
being able to bring the advantages of this convenient blood-based testing
alternative for CRC to the benefit of patients in the US."
