NEW YORK, Nov. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkNewsAudio – Predictive Oncology Inc. (NASDAQ: POAI), a knowledge-driven precision medicine company focused on applying data and artificial intelligence (AI) to personalized medicine and drug discovery, today announces the broadcast of its audio interview with NetworkNewsAudio (NNA), a NetworkNewsWire (NNW) solution that delivers clients unparalleled visibility, recognition and brand awareness in the investment community.
The interview can be heard at http://nnw.fm/53oiD
Predictive Oncology CEO Dr. Carl Schwartz joins NNW’s Stuart Smith for a look at the company’s strategy of applying its smart tumor profiling and AI platform to extensive genomic and biomarker patient data sets, allowing them to build predictive models of tumor drug response that will improve clinical outcomes for the cancer patients. The interview also digs into the company’s numerous corporate and scientific milestones achieved in 2019.
“Predictive Oncology and its subsidiaries, in collaboration with key players in the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotech industries, are finding success in several arenas,” Dr. Schwartz says. The Skyline Medical division continues to grow and expand worldwide with sales of its direct-to-drain fluid disposal system, designed specifically for medical applications, actively selling in the Middle East, India, Australia, and in the United States.
The company’s TumorGenesis division has advanced its research to the point where tumors can be grown outside of the body in a medium that “fools the tumor into thinking it’s still in the body,” Dr. Schwartz explains. The advantage to this method of research is that it allows for a faster and more accurate identification of biomarkers, which can lead to development of patient-specific treatment options. Dr. Schwartz expects this revolutionary product to hit the market by year’s end.
The company’s main division, Helomics, holds the world’s largest database of tumor drug response profiles - over 150,000 tumors covering more than 137 types of cancer gathered over the last 15 years. Helomics applies AI to this rich data to aid oncologists in personalizing cancer therapy and to drive development of new, targeted therapies. Collaborative studies are underway with several renowned medical institutions and pharmaceutical firms to validate Helomic’s AI platform for several targeted cancers.
“In contrast to other companies that are just starting to do this, who then have to wait for at least four or five years to obtain patient outcomes, we already have this information going back over 10 years. This ability to access historical outcome data to complement the drug response profiles and molecular information about the tumor makes us unique,” Dr. Schwartz says. “I think that we are looking forward to a robust 2020, with a lot more to come. I would tell all of our shareholders to stay tuned.”
