100,000 Genomes Project Data
On 3rd August 2021, it was announced that POAI is delighted to provide preliminary findings on AI-driven ovarian cancer models. Working with data from Genomics England’s National Genomic Research Library (NGRL), Helomics has created a novel AI-driven model that can predict post-treatment survival rates for ovarian cancer patients. These artificial intelligence models have the potential to enhance ovarian cancer therapy pathways and promote the development of novel medicines. In late summer, the study’s findings will be accessible as a preprint on Biorxiv.
Helomics extracted important genetic characteristics from almost 500 ovarian cancer individuals. The AI algorithm learns patterns in the genetic alterations of patients’ tumors. Then it predicts their post-treatment survival rates with an accuracy of almost 70%. Helomics is presently striving to improve its AI algorithms in order to improve forecast accuracy.
