Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI), a knowledge-driven company focused on applying artificial intelligence (“AI”) to personalized medicine and drug discovery, recently reported that its Helomics subsidiary is making headway toward its goal of developing an AI-driven predictive model of ovarian cancer (http://ibn.fm/mENY6). An article discussing the company reads, “This achievement will be a key milestone for the company’s CancerQuest2020 initiative. . . . CancerQuest2020 is focused on building an AI-driven model of ovarian cancer that will predict drug response and outcome leveraging Helomics’ huge knowledge base of tumor profiles. Predictive models embody the knowledge from these profiles to create a ‘computational expert’ or a ‘virtual patient’ that can be queried. Predictive models such as these are of high value to pharmaceutical companies as they can be used to quickly select patients for clinical trials and assess potential new drugs or biomarkers computationally (‘in silico’) before initiating expensive laboratory experiments. In short, Helomics’ predictive models will save time and money in the search for new targeted therapies. . . . Using the power of AI, the model draws on data generated from over 150,000 tumor cases.”

About Predictive Oncology Inc.
Predictive Oncology operates through three segments (domestic, international and other) that contain four subsidiaries; Helomics, TumorGenesis, Skyline Medical and Skyline Europe. Helomics applies artificial intelligence to its rich data gathered from patient tumors to both personalize cancer therapies for patients and drive the development of new targeted therapies in collaborations with pharmaceutical companies. Helomics’ CLIA-certified lab provides clinical testing that assists oncologists in individualizing patient treatment decisions, by providing an evidence-based road map for therapy. In addition to its proprietary precision oncology platform, Helomics offers boutique CRO services that leverage its TruTumor(TM), patient-derived tumor models coupled with a wide range of multi-omics assays (genomics, proteomics and biochemical), and an AI-powered proprietary bioinformatics platform to provide a tailored solution to its clients’ specific needs. Predictive Oncology’s TumorGenesis subsidiary is developing a new rapid approach to growing tumors in the laboratory, which essentially “fools” cancer cells into thinking they are still growing inside a patient. Its proprietary Oncology Discovery Technology Platform Kits will assist researchers and clinicians to identify which cancer cells bind to specific biomarkers. Once the biomarkers are identified, they can be used in TumorGenesis’ Oncology Capture Technology Platforms, which isolate and help categorize an individual patient’s heterogeneous tumor samples to enable the development of patient-specific treatment options. Helomics and TumorGenesis are focused on ovarian cancer. Predictive Oncology’s Skyline Medical division markets its patented and FDA-cleared STREAMWAY System, which automates the collection, measurement and disposal of waste fluid, including blood, irrigation fluid and others, within a medical facility, through both domestic and international divisions. The company has achieved sales in five of the seven continents through both direct sales and distributor partners. For more information, please visit www.Predictive-Oncology.com.
