Neoprobe and Cardinal Health Sign Term Sheet for Lymphoseek Distribution

DUBLIN, Ohio--(HSMN NewsFeed)--Neoprobe Corporation (OTCBB:NEOP ), a diversified developer of innovative oncology and cardiovascular surgical and diagnostic products, announced today it has signed a term sheet with Cardinal Health for the marketing and distribution of Lymphoseek® on an exclusive basis in the United States through Cardinal Health's network of over 150 nuclear pharmacies as well as their wholesale distribution operations to in-hospital nuclear pharmacies.


Lymphoseek (Technetium Tc99m DTPA-mannosyl-dextran) is a proprietary radioactive lymphatic mapping targeting agent being developed by Neoprobe for use with handheld gamma detection devices, such as Neoprobe's neo2000® system, in a surgical procedure known as Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB). Neoprobe recently announced positive preliminary data from a Phase 2 multicenter clinical trial for Lymphoseek and is preparing to submit a proposed Phase 3 protocol to FDA.

Details of the non-binding term sheet will remain confidential until a definitive marketing and distribution arrangement has been negotiated and signed.

David Bupp, Neoprobe's President and CEO, said, "We are very pleased to have the opportunity to establish business terms for the marketing and distribution of Lymphoseek in the United States. The completion of this agreement, coupled with our recent announcement of preliminary results for the Phase 2 clinical evaluation of Lymphoseek, will be an important milestone event for the Company. We look forward to working with Cardinal Health to support the successful commercial launch of Lymphoseek in the United States."
