This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190312005768/en/
Under the agreement OncoImmunity will license the Immuneoprofiler™ software to Flow Pharma to support the clinical development and commercialisation of products based on the FlowVax platform. The Immuneoprofiler™ has recently received the CE-IVD mark certification as a medical device, and fills some of the key gaps in neoantigen prediction. The FlowVax vaccine platform developed by Flow Pharma, is optimized to simultaneously deliver multiple neoantigen peptide targets to enhance tumor-specific killer T-cell attack. OncoImmunity will develop a customised machine-learning layer, using clinical data generated by Flow Pharma, that will work-in-sync with the Immuneoprofiler™ software to make predictions tailored to the FlowVax platform.
“This exciting partnership and licensing deal represents a fantastic opportunity for OncoImmunity to apply its Immuneoprofiler™ prediction software to the FlowVax technology in a clinical setting. It also affords OncoImmunity the opportunity to leverage its in-depth knowledge of immune-informatics and expertise in machine learning to develop a customised solution for the FlowVax platform that will support Flow Pharma’s needs now and in the years ahead” said Richard Stratford., Chief Executive Officer at OncoImmunity.
“We believe that OncoImmunity’s Immuneoprofiler™ software represents the best-in-class solution for predicting clinically relevant bona fide neoantigens. Flow Pharma’s bioinformatics team will be working closely with OncoImmunity AS to customize the way we utilize Immuneoprofiler™ in order to optimize the use of the data we will be generating” said Reid Rubsamen, M.D., CEO of Flow Pharma.
OncoImmunity AS is a machine-learning company offering a proprietary technology to address key knowledge gaps in the prediction of bona fide immunogenic neoantigen for personalized cancer immunotherapy. OncoImmunity's software facilitates effective patient selection for cancer immunotherapy and identifies neoantigen targets creating truly personalized cancer vaccines & cell therapies in clinically actionable time-frames.
About Flow Pharma
Flow Pharma Inc. is a San Francisco Bay Area based, biotechnology company developing personalized neoantigen-based vaccines based on its proprietary FlowVax vaccine platform.
The FlowVax platform is optimized to simultaneously deliver multiple neoantigen peptide targets to enhance tumor-specific killer T-cell attack. Each of the chemical components used in the FlowVax platform are currently part of an FDA approved vaccine or pharmaceutical, simplifying the regulatory pathway. Flow Pharma is now gearing up to test therapeutic cancer vaccines based on the FlowVax platform.
About FlowVax TM
Each of the chemical components used in the FlowVax platform are currently part of an FDA approved vaccine or pharmaceutical, simplifying the regulatory pathway. FlowVax vaccines can also be manufactured quickly and efficiently, keeping the cost down and getting the therapy in the hands of treating physicians soon after the diagnosis is made, for maximum efficacy.
However, as with all personalized vaccine approaches, the successful development and commercialisation of products based on the FlowVax platform is predicated on being able to identify clinically actionable and immunogenic neoantigen targets in a cost effective and clinically actionable time-frame. OncoImmunity’s Immuneoprofiler™ software, addresses this challenge, by harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to identify clinically relevant and immunogenic neoantigens from next generation sequencing data.

Delticom AG/Mytyres.co.uk: Buying Great Value Tyres Online Doesn’t Mean Missing out on Professional Fitting22.3.2019 17:15:00 EET | Tiedote
Spring is just around the corner, and it’s time for drivers to start thinking about changing to summer tyres. However, a tyre check may show that your current summer tyres are getting old, worn out, or have visible damage, such as cracks or bumps. If this is the case, then it's time for a new set of tyres. The legal minimum tread depth is 1.6 mm, however experts recommend significantly more – summer tyres should be replaced even if the tread depth is 3 mm. Regardless of mileage, you should change your tyres at least every eight to ten years. This is because the rubber starts to harden, the tyres lose grip on the road, and driving performance is affected. Of course, a set of four new tyres is a significant investment – authorised workshops can often charge between 250 and 350 pounds. If you want to save money, consider the alternatives: the result is an increasing number of customers turning to online shops such as Mytyres.co.uk to buy new tyres. The market share of tyres sold online ha
