Abstract: Let $ {P^ \ast }(X)$ be the algebra of bounded, real-valued proximity functions on a proximity space $ (X,\delta )$, where $ X$ is a dense subspace of a topological space $ T$. In this paper we obtain several conditions which are equivalent to the following property: every member of $ {P^ \ast }(X)$ has a continuous extension to $ T$. Examples concerning these results are included, one of which shows that this extension property is distinct from $ {C^ \ast }$-embedding.
