Predictive Oncology – Year-end Shareholder Update!

EAGAN, Minn., Dec. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Predictive Oncology, (POAI), a knowledge-driven company focused on applying artificial intelligence (AI) to develop personalized cancer therapies, is moving in the right direction.

In November 2021, POAI acquired zPREDICTA, a cutting edge cancer based company with a proven commercial and scientific record. Their patented 3D cell culture platform has already been proven successful. zPREDICTA’s technology has been validated in Multiple Myeloma and cell growth. We believe, this is the only human bone marrow-derived cell culture model capable of maintaining primary multiple myeloma cells. The science is now being adapted to other cancer cell cultures.

Besides the synergies already present with our Helomics and TumorGenesis divisions, the acquisition provides a foot in the door for POAI to large pharmaceutical customers already doing business with zPREDICTA. We now possess a “one-two” punch to pharma with the established 3D cell culture platform and our CoRE™ artificial intelligent technology that will cut costs and time in drug discovery and drug repurposing.

zPREDICTA brings a historical revenue stream and profitable bottom-line to POAI. Coupled with our anticipated commercialization of our Discovery 21 project, POAI is emerging from a research and development-only company to a biopharmaceutical revenue-based company.

To support our commercialization efforts, POAI announced the hiring of Pamela Bush, Ph.D, MBA, on December 7, 2021. Dr. Bush will lead our sales and business development initiatives, while integrating our sales and marketing efforts throughout the Company.

Predictive Oncology has four interwoven divisions: Helomics, TumorGenesis, Soluble Biotech and, now, zPREDICTA. Our legacy company, Skyline Medical, continues to sell the STREAMWAY System®, producing revenue and covering its own cost, while we consider options for selling the division.

Working together, we endeavor to eliminate cancer while simultaneously providing strong returns to our investors.

Thank you,

J. Melville (“Mel”) Engle

About Predictive Oncology

Predictive Oncology Inc. (NASDAQ: POAI) is a knowledge-driven company focused on applying artificial intelligence (AI) to develop personalized cancer therapies, which can lead to more effective treatments and improved patient outcomes. Using artificial intelligence, Predictive Oncology uses a database of 150,000+ cancer tumors, categorized by patient type, against drug compounds to determine optimal therapies to be used to ultimately eliminate cancer.

As the drug discovery community has now realized, a genomics-based approach to cancer research and drug development is insufficient to achieve the promise of personalized therapeutics. Predictive Oncology instead takes a multiomic approach, which considers the vast multitude of factors that make each cancer unique.
