Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI), through its subsidiary Helomics, is sequencing ovarian cancers as part of a CancerQuest 2020 project, building the largest ovarian multi-omic database in the world. An article discussing the company reads, “As part of its CancerQuest 2020 project, Predictive Oncology, through Helomics, recently signed a collaborative agreement with UPMC-Magee to establish a data- and artificial-intelligence-driven approach to treating ovarian cancer. Based on the agreement, the partnership is designed to validate the significant value of using AI-powered decision-making for identifying specific treatments on specific genotypes to predict clinical outcomes for ovarian cancer patients. . . . Helomics has also begun sequencing retrospective ovarian cancer cases from the UPMC-Magee collaboration (http://ibn.fm/I4Lnb). As part of the sequencing process, Helomics is analyzing the mutations in the tumor (genome) and the expression of genes (transcriptome) in order to build a comprehensive multi-omic picture of the tumor. That information can then be brought together with Helomics’ data set of drug-response profiles to build an AI-driven predictive model of ovarian cancer.”

About Predictive Oncology Inc.
Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI) operates through five segments (domestic, international, clinical, CRO and DCHIP), which 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 to a wide range of multi-omics assays (genomics, proteomics and biochemical), and an AI-powered, proprietary bioinformatics platform (D-CHIP) 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.
