Helomics, UPMC collaborate to establish AI-approach to ovarian cancer treatment.

Predictive Oncology subsidiary Helomics announced a joint collaborative agreement with UPMC to study the use of artificial intelligence to improve clinical decision making for ovarian cancer patients. Helomics is a subsidiary of Predictive Oncology Inc., a company focused on applying artificial intelligence to personalized medicine and drug discovery. The collaboration will focus on using Helomics' artificial intelligence platform to analyze the genomic and drug response profiles of women with ovarian cancer to determine predictive value in terms of response/non-response to therapy. The parties believe that the collaboration will demonstrate the value of using AI-powered, evidence-based decision making, in the context of specific treatments on specific genotypes, to predict clinical outcomes for this group of patients. Work performed under the collaboration will be funded in part by UPMC Enterprises. UPMC Enterprises, the commercialization and innovation arm of UPMC, was established to generate and enable exceptional health care innovations focusing on two main areas: translational science and digital health solutions.
