Tel Aviv – (NewMediaWire) – December 13, 2021 – Todos Medical, Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF), a comprehensive medical diagnostics and related solutions company, today announced the Company has entered into a new agreement with holders of its convertible notes that provides for a 90-day moratorium on conversion of those convertible notes and a restriction on sales of common shares owned by those noteholders (collectively the “New Lockup”). This New Lockup was entered into immediately after the expiry of a similar agreement on December 10, 2021 which was announced on September 24, 2021 (the “Old Lockup”).
“We are very pleased that we were able to come to a resolution on the restriction on Ordinary share sales into the market with our convertible debt holders such that there will be fixed number of shares outstanding as we head into an interim data readout of the Tollovir® Phase 2 clinical trial in hospitalized COVID-19 patients,” said Gerald E. Commissiong, President & CEO of Todos Medical. “We are seeing a significant ramp in COVID PCR and cPass neutralizing testing demand at our CLIA/CAP-certified lab Provista Diagnostics, while at the same time seeing sales increase for our dietary supplement products Tollovid® and Tollovid Daily™ that are the only products in the marketplace that have received 3CL protease inhibitor claims from the U.S. Food & Drug Administrations. Our recently announced European licensing and distribution partnership with T-Cell Protect Hellas S.A. for our Tollovid-branded products has already made a material impact on our revenue for the fourth quarter, and we are now expecting additional orders and distribution agreements to be established as demand for 3CL protease inhibitor products increases dramatically in the months ahead and we believe Todos can play a major role in supplying these products to meet that demand. We believe the fact that management was able to negotiate this New Lockup demonstrates the confidence these investors have in our plan and should also provide confidence to the marketplace in our ability to deliver on our promises, give the Company sufficient room to finalize key strategic transactions previously announced to unlock shareholder value and help facilitate the listing of our common shares on a national stock exchange in the months ahead.”
About Todos Medical Ltd.
Founded in Rehovot, Israel with offices in New York City, Todos Medical Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF) engineers life-saving diagnostic solutions for the early detection of a variety of cancers. The Company’s state-of-the-art and patented Todos Biochemical Infrared Analyses (TBIA) is a proprietary cancer-screening technology using peripheral blood analysis that deploys deep examination into cancer’s influence on the immune system, looking for biochemical changes in blood mononuclear cells and plasma. Todos’ two internally-developed cancer-screening tests, TMB-1 and TMB-2, have received a CE mark in Europe. Todos recently acquired U.S.-based medical diagnostics company Provista Diagnostics, Inc. to gain rights to its Alpharetta, Georgia-based CLIA/CAP certified lab currently performing PCR COVID testing and Provista’s proprietary commercial-stage Videssa® breast cancer blood test.
Todos is also developing blood tests for the early detection of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease. The Lymphocyte Proliferation Test (LymPro Test™) is a diagnostic blood test that determines the ability of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) and monocytes to withstand an exogenous mitogenic stimulation that induces them to enter the cell cycle. It is believed that certain diseases, most notably Alzheimer’s disease, are the result of compromised cellular machinery that leads to aberrant cell cycle re-entry by neurons, which then leads to apoptosis. LymPro is unique in the use of peripheral blood lymphocytes as a surrogate for neuronal cell function, suggesting a common relationship between PBLs and neurons in the brain.
Todos has entered into distribution agreements with companies to distribute certain novel coronavirus (COVID-19) test kits. The agreements cover multiple international suppliers of PCR testing kits and related materials and supplies, as well as antibody testing kits from multiple manufacturers after completing validation of said testing kits and supplies in its partner CLIA/CAP certified laboratory in the United States. Additionally, Todos has entered into a joint venture with NLC Pharma to pursue the development of diagnostic tests targeting the 3CL protease, as well as 3CL protease inhibitors that target a fundamental reproductive mechanism of coronaviruses.
