Predictive Oncology’s (NASDAQ: POAI) flagship subsidiary TumorGenesis is making strides in the identification and separation of cancer-related biomarkers in an effort to quicken the development of new, effective therapeutics. TumorGenesis is currently utilizing a new trend in cancer research that leverages patient-derived xenografts (“PDx”). A recent article discussing the company reads, “Science has shifted to these much more accurate PDx models: A cancer patient’s tumor cells are implanted into an alternate environment to simulate the natural development of the tumor. By ‘fooling the tumor’ with an imitative environment, new drugs are able to be tested and potentially approved — all without subjecting cancer patients to aggressive, potentially ineffective drugs. The cancer cells are tricked into thinking they’re still multiplying inside the patient, which makes the tumor behave as it would normally — revealing more precise cancer biomarkers. TumorGenesis’ unique research approach benefits from the parent company’s enormous database of tumor drug-response profiles and artificial intelligence-driven predictive modeling capabilities. . . . TumorGenesis has developed its proprietary methodology using PDx to culture tumor cells in vivo (i.e. in living organisms). These cell models can be then tested repeatedly for various new drugs to establish personalized therapeutics. This patient-specific data is revolutionizing the way cancer is treated today, and POAI, through its strategic subsidiary arms, poses an attractive option for investors looking to invest in the cancer treatment of tomorrow.”

About Predictive Oncology Inc.
Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI) operates through five segments (domestic, international, clinical, CRO and D-CHIP), 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, visit the company’s website at www.Predictive-Oncology.com.
