SAVANNAH, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Health Discovery Corporation (OTCBB: HDVY) is pleased to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued the first of what the Company expects to be several patents covering methods to screen for the presence of prostate cancer using genomic biomarkers that were identified by HDC researchers using the Company's patented RFE-SVM algorithm.
