MetaStat to Present at Noble Financial Capital Markets' Ninth Annual Equity Conference on January 22, 2013


1/18/2013 6:16:06 AM

MONTCLAIR, N.J., Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MetaStat, Inc. (OTCBB: MTST), ("MetaStat" or the "Company"), a life science company focused on understanding and treating systemic metastasis, today announced that the Company will be presenting at the NINE 2013 - Noble Financial Capital Markets' Ninth Annual Equity Conference held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hollywood, Florida, on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Dr. Oscar Bronsther, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer, will host the presentation.

A live audio and high-definition video webcast of MetaStat's presentation and a copy of the presentation materials will be available on the Noble Financial websites: www.noblefcm.com, or www.nobleresearch.com/nine/home.htm.

About MetaStat, Inc.
MetaStat's proprietary platform technologies are the result of over 15 years of collaboration involving four scientific/academic institutions, which enabled us to characterize the behavior, mechanics and genetics of metastatic cancer cells.

Our MetaSite Breast and MenaCalc diagnostic product lines are designed to accurately predict the probability of cancer metastasizing. They are intended to allow clinicians to better "customize" cancer treatment decisions by positively identifying and differentiating high-risk patients who need aggressive therapy and by sparing low-risk patients from the harmful side effects and expense of chemotherapy and radiation therapies. Furthermore, we believe our MenaCalc diagnostic platform may be applicable in up to 80% of all solid epithelial cancers, including breast, prostate, lung and colorectal, which account for over 50% of all new cancer cases in the U.S. each year. As such, we believe our diagnostic products represent a significant breakthrough for cancer patients and their doctors because 90% of all solid tumor cancer deaths are due from systemic metastasis.

Additionally, we believe our MenaBloc chemotherapy technology will target and interrupt key pathways essential for the development of systemic metastasis in multiple epithelial derived tumors.
