Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI) CEO Dr. Carl Schwartz recently referred to the company’s Helomics subsidiary as a “major asset” during an exclusive NNW interview with Stuart Smith (http://nnw.fm/54qVZ). An article discussing the interview reads, “During the interview, Schwartz pointed out that Helomics’ collection of more than 150,000 cancer tumors is the largest inventory of its kind in the world and that the impressive collection ‘was amassed over the last two decades by physicians sending in cancerous tumors to be tested with the known therapies of the time. The results of these tests were in turn sent back to the referring physicians to be used as a guide or a reference as desired for treatment of the evaluated tumor,’ he continued. ‘And the evaluated tumor was placed back in the physician’s therapy inventory. That’s how we amassed all these tumors.’ . . . Schwartz explained that POAI was intent on proving that it can sequence, ‘which is genetically profile our tumors, and do what is called a ‘reach back,’ or examination of what eventually happened to these patients over an extended period of time. I want to strongly emphasize that Helomics is the only company with the ability to do this ‘reach back’ at this time because only we have a patient history.’”

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, visit the company’s website at www.Predictive-Oncology.com.
