The Company Arose as a Joint Venture Between Skyline Medical and Helomics. Skyline Medical’s Automated ‘streamway’ System Transformed How Laboratories Safely Dispose of Medical Fluid Waste. By Joining Forces with Helomics, Predictive Oncology, Is Now Bringing Precision Medicine to the Diagnosis of Cancer. Harnessing the Power of Artificial Intelligence, Predictive Oncology Is Working with the Pharmaceutical, Diagnostic and Biotech Industries to Develop Highly Customizable Assessment Methods for Cancer Patients, Leading to Much More Effective Treatments.
Introducing Predictive Oncology
But most patients recieve a combination of chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy, and surgery. Predictive Oncology takes into account individual variability in genes, mutations, environment and lifestyle to introduce targeted therapies, some with companion diagnostic tests that identify patients most likely to benefit from a particular treatment.
Predictive Oncology is advancing the frontiers of this rapidly growing field of medicine. Our breakthroughs in sophisticated gene, protein, and bioinfomatics techniques mean we can view the intricate interplay between the genes and regulatory factors responsible for cancers.
With artificial intelligence, the D-CHIP™ platform continously learns from each patient, creating a valuable knowledge base of tumor profiles and drug responses that can be used by our partners to develop the next generation of diagnostics and therapies.
Through its partnership with Helomics, Predictive Oncology has also founded Tumorgenesis™ Incorporated. Its scientists hope to develop an innovative, rapid approach to growing laboratory tumors that effectively "fool" cancer cells into thinking they are growing inside a human body. These lab-grown models will be used to test drugs for personalized therapy and to develop new drugs.
