Nurosene will utilize its powerful AI platform to leverage genome sequencing data in pancreatic cancer from the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR) to identify biomarkers that could help clinicians identify optimal medications for patients suffering with the disease.

TORONTO, April 13, 2022 /CNW/ - Nurosene Health Inc. ("Nurosene" or the "Company") (CSE: MEND) (Frankfurt: 8TV) (OTC: MNNDF), a healthtech company focused on delivering innovative AI-based technology solutions for mental performance and wellness announces partnership, via its wholly owned subsidiary NetraMark Corp. ("NetraMark"), with the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR), a collaborative research institute that conducts and enables high-impact translational cancer research. The effort will focus on pancreatic cancer, a global therapeutics market worth an estimated USD $2.59 billion [1].

The goal of the project is to identify genetic biomarkers related to pancreatic cancer. The results from this research will provide clinicians an understanding on how to best target the disease and which medication is optimal for each patient, supporting the advancement of precision medicine. Each year, more than 14 million people worldwide are diagnosed with cancer and more than 8 million people die from the disease [2]. Pancreatic cancer is particularly insidious with a 5-year survival rate of just 10% [3].

"Applying our technology to identify biomarkers in pancreatic cancer adds to our existing efforts in oncology. We are excited to now be working with OICR on this important project that has the potential to have a significant impact on survival rates. This data can be further utilized to discover new therapeutic products in oncology with our current partners."
~ Dr. Joseph Geraci, Nurosene's Chief Scientific Officer

Nurosene's powerful technology represents a new paradigm of machine learning, moving from machines that rely on human-generated labels to causal machine learning that teaches us about disease and how to best treat individual patients. The technology allows physicians and scientists to have a deep connection with the models generated so that their expertise is optimised. Nurosene's AI platform thrives with smaller data sets and heterogeneous patient populations like cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, inflammation, psychiatric disorders, and ageing. In addition to biomarker identification, this technology will be used to accelerate new drug discovery and to prevent clinical trial failure via precise patient stratification for drug efficacy, adverse events, and placebo response.
