Predictive Submits Emergency Use Authorization Application for Treatment of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Secondary to COVID -19 with Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells

SALT LAKE CITY, April 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Predictive Biotech, a wholly owned subsidiary of Predictive Technology Group (OTC PINK: PRED) (“Predictive” or “The Company”), announced that on April 9th it submitted an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the immediate use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from umbilical cord tissue for the treatment of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), secondary to SARS-CoV-2, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has shown to develop into severe ARDS in 30% of hospitalized patients with a 22%-62% mortality rate (Murthy et al., 2020) for those requiring hospitalization in an intensive care unit. Currently, there is no confirmed treatment that can demonstrate safety or efficacy for the treatment of COVID-19.

“Coronavirus can be deadly, in large part because the virus can cause ‘cytokine storms’ in which the patient’s own immune system triggers a runaway response causing more damage to the patient, than to the virus it’s trying to eliminate” said John Sorrentino, Chairman of Predictive Technology Group.  “Respiratory distress kills hundreds of thousands of people each year worldwide. There is clinical data from early clinical trials that seem to indicate that the avoidance of the cytokine storm utilizing MSCs may be a critical component for the treatment of COVID-19 infected patients.”

A recent review article published in Pain Physician, concluded that, “The limited but emerging evidence regarding UC MSC [umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells] in managing COVID-19 suggests that it might be considered for compassionate use in critically ill patients to reduce morbidity and mortality in the United States.”

The proposed IND clinical trial will utilize Predictive’s proprietary core technology of naturally occurring MSCs derived from umbilical cord tissue (UC-MSCs) to assess the efficacy as an add-on therapy to standard treatment of patients with severe Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) secondary to COVID-19.

Predictive’s UC MSC product, CoreCyteTM,

has already been used as an allograft in over 50,000 patients.  Physicians have reported to Predictive that over 1,100 patients have been treated with CoreCyte via intravenous administration. No serious adverse events have been reported with CoreCyte regardless of the route of administration. If Predictive’s EUA request is approved, CoreCyte would be available immediately to critically ill patients with ARDS due to COVID-19 infections.

About the Assurance AB™ COVID-19 IgM/IgG Rapid Antibody Test:

The Assurance AB™ COVID-19 IgM/IgG Rapid Antibody Test is a rapid test for the qualitative detection of IgM and IgG antibodies associated with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Assurance AB is a single-use, self-contained test that provides results in 15 minutes, helping authorities, employers and healthcare workers make informed decisions to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Assurance AB is intended for individuals who display signs and symptoms of COVID-19, individuals who were exposed to someone infected with COVID-19, or individuals who want qualitative information about whether or not they have IgM or IgG antibodies. Assurance AB is for use by laboratories and healthcare workers at the point-of-care.

What is antibody testing?

Antibody assays have the ability to detect past infections and indicate probable immunity. Antibodies are long-lasting and may be detected in the bloodstream several years after infection. 

Assurance AB detects the presence of antibodies IgM and IgG, developed in response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The antibody and its relative levels may be used to indicate the stage of infection and estimate time since exposure to the virus for contact tracing.

  • IgM: develop EARLY after SARS-CoV-2 virus exposure
  • IgG: develop LATER after SARS-CoV-2 virus exposure; indicates long-term immunity

Assurance AB Benefits

  • Results in 15 minutes
  • Highly accurate (92% sensitivity (CI95% 89.4-95.7%); 100% specificity (CI95% 96.8-100%))
  • NO laboratory equipment required
  • NO specialized training required, easy-to-use
  • Reduces risk of spreading the virus to healthcare workers administering tests or technicians processing tests
  • Provides actionable information to all patients to help determine if a COVID-19 viral PCR test is needed
  • Provides insightful information for when it is safe for individuals to go back to work and resume normal activities of daily life
  • Test kits can be stored and used at room temperature
  • Antibody testing is improved over nasopharyngeal swab testing by the fact that antibodies are more uniformly present in blood sampling

Predictive Technology Group and Manufacturing Partners Provide Updates of Its Assurance AB™ COVID-19 IgM/IgG Rapid Antibody Test for Use by Laboratories and Healthcare Workers at the Point of Care

Company provides formal response to misleading recently published short report

SALT LAKE CITY, March 30, 2020 — Predictive Technology Group (OTC PINK: PRED) (“Predictive” or “The Company”), a leader in the development of genetic and molecular diagnostics and companion therapeutics, and its manufacturing partner, Jiangsu Dablood Pharmaceutical CO, Ltd. (Dablood), a partner entity of Da An Gene Co., Ltd., today made several updates and progress reports on its Assurance AB™ COVID-19 IgM/IgG Rapid Antibody Test(Assurance AB)intended for laboratories and healthcare workers at the point-of-care in the U.S.   

“An opinion piece critical of Predictive was posted online last week by individually unidentified author(s) who admitted they have taken a short position in shares of The Company,” said John Sorrentino, chairman of Predictive Technology Group. “We encourage every reader to do their own due diligence and review the documents posted today on Predictive Laboratories’ website. The author(s), hiding behind anonymity – and attempts to disclaim – also warn that ‘Hindenburg Research makes no representation, express or implied, as to the accuracy, timeliness, or completeness of any such information.’ Because the opinion piece itself warns readers of its short position-based bias and its unwillingness to guarantee the accuracy of any ‘information’ it espouses, The Company will not dignify the opinion piece with a point-by-point response, however we felt compelled to address a few egregious misrepresentations and untruths.”

The opinion piece asserts a material falsehood that “Dablood is NOT one of the companies approved by the Chinese government to offer COVID-19 tests. The official list of approved COVID-19 test providers is published by the Chinese government, was updated as of March 17th, and does not include Dablood or its affiliates.” If properly investigated, one can find that #5 on the referenced list is Da An Gene Co., Ltd. Guangzhou Darui Biotechnology, a subsidiary of Da An Gene Co., Ltd., has joint venture entity in Dablood. As such, Dablood operates under the Da An Gene Co., Ltd. license.

Regarding Predictive’s formal request for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the FDA to distribute Assurance AB, the opinion piece states, in part, that “Predictive has no specific approval from requisite U.S. authorities to provide this test.” The Company views this statement as simply not true. 

“The FDA’s recent guidance on COVID-19 antibody (i.e. serological) diagnostic tests clearly allows manufacturers to market these tests in the United States to laboratories and healthcare workers at the point of care, so long as the tests have been validated and notification is provided to the FDA,” said Bradley Robinson, CEO of Predictive Technology Group. “The Predictive/Dablood test meets these criteria. Additionally, The Company has formally submitted an EUA with the FDA. If granted, this would provide Predictive the ability to market the test for in-home use.”

Predictive Laboratories, Inc., a wholly-owned entity of The Company, operates a CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited laboratory which is responsible for the distribution of the Assurance AB.Predictive Laboratories has updated its website to include the following:

  • Dablood Board of Directors response to the erroneous and misleading Hindenburg opinion piece published on March 27, 2020
  • FDA confirmation receipt of EUA application
  • Representative of Foreign Manufacturer Notice from Dablood to the FDA
  • Manufacturer FDA EUA Notification from Dablood to the FDA
  • U.S. Agent Retainer Agreement

“The Hindenburg piece repeatedly and inaccurately attempts to cast Predictive solely as a stem cell company while ignoring The Company’s other diagnostic assets, such as ARTguideTM and FertilityDXTM, and its recently announced diagnostic assay collaboration with Atrin Pharmaceuticals. In this context, a COVID-19 rapid antibody test is a logical addition to Predictive’s portfolio. Nevertheless, they attempt to cast Predictive as simply a stem cell company,” said Robinson. “Predictive encourages thoughtful investors to consider the motives of these anonymous authors when assessing the truthfulness and accuracy of any statement or report in the opinion piece. Predictive will pursue any and all legal actions against individuals and entities who intentionally mislead Predictive stakeholders.”

“The response to the announcement of Assurance AB (March 25, 2020) has been very strong,” continued Robinson. “In particular, both international and domestic governmental agencies have expressed strong interest in how rapid antibody testing can help with the public health response to this critical pandemic. We want to acknowledge the tireless activities by our employees and partners in developing a tool that can be a part of solving this global health crisis.”

Predictive Technology Group Announces Launch of Assurance AB™ COVID-19 IgM/IgG Rapid Antibody Test for Use by Laboratories and Healthcare Workers at the Point of Care

Assurance AB™ is a single-use, self-contained SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) antibody detection test that provides results in 15-minutes

SALT LAKE CITY, March 25, 2020 — Predictive Technology Group (OTC PINK: PRED) (“Predictive” or “The Company”), a leader in the development of genetic and molecular diagnostics and companion therapeutics today announced that in response to the demand for high volume test availability for the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) global pandemic, Predictive Laboratories, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Company has notified the U.S. Food and Drug Administration of its intent to immediately distribute the validated Assurance AB™ COVID-19 IgM/IgG Rapid Antibody Test (Assurance AB) test to laboratories and healthcare workers at the point-of-care in the U.S.  

The Assurance AB test was developed to detect the presence of IgM and/or IgG antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The test requires only a fingerstick to sample an individual’s blood which is then placed on the self-contained test device. The test takes 15-minutes to display results. The test results indicate the presence of antibodies associated with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

“Our company is committed to help with the global challenge of testing for the COVID-19 virus.” said Bradley Robinson, CEO of Predictive Technology Group. “Testing strategies for the pandemic are fluid and changing daily. We have worked diligently with our partners who have experience in testing tens of millions of patients worldwide. We appreciate their assistance in allocating resources and transferring vital knowledge for identifying individuals that have had an immune reaction and developed antibodies in response to virus exposure. Domestic and international governmental agencies, healthcare groups, pharmacies and employers have shown a strong interest in our test,” added Robinson. The Company will distribute the Assurance AB test through its wholly-owned subsidiary Predictive Laboratories, Inc., a CLIA certified and CAP accredited laboratory.

John Nelson M.D. former president of the American Medical Association and Predictive scientific advisory board member commented “The overwhelming need for a quick and accurate test for this pandemic is obvious. Focusing on an antibody test helps accelerate results and protect healthcare workers. The Assurance AB test is a valuable tool for truly understanding the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S.”

Assurance AB can help authorities, employers and healthcare workers make informed decisions on whether or not to continue precautions. Point of care serology testing may allow individuals with antibodies the confidence to go back to the workplace and engage in their communities.

Additional advantages of the Assurance AB test include:

  • inexpensive test with results in 15 minutes
  • antibody testing is less complex and remedies potential false negative results common in nasopharyngeal swab sampling
  • sample collection type (blood droplets) nearly eliminates the risk of spreading the virus to healthcare workers administering tests and/or to laboratory personnel who handle the submitted samples

Because of the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus, several states including California and New York have recently expressed immediate need for rapid antibody testing. While there are benefits to viral testing, serology antibody testing allows patients to know if they have been exposed to the virus and if they have developed antibodies typically associated with immunity.

Assurance AB COVID-19 IgM/IgG Rapid Antibody Test is being manufactured in cooperation with Jiangsu Dablood Pharmaceutical CO, Ltd. Dablood Pharmaceutical has successfully distributed 38 million tests to date throughout Asia and Europe. To the best of Predictive’s knowledge, Dablood Pharmaceutical is one of very few companies approved by the Chinese government to co-develop and manufacture rapid antibody tests. Dablood Pharmaceutical is one of the largest diagnostic kit manufacturers in China and is currently producing up to 1.5 million units of the rapid antibody test per day in China. Predictive evaluated other potential developers and suppliers and believes Dablood Pharmaceutical provides not only existing inventory, its high-volume production capacity enables them to rapidly increase production to provide high-quality tests to meet rapidly expanding global demand. Dablood Pharmaceutical has been recognized by the Chinese government for its effort of developing and producing testing products to help the detect the COVID-19 and has received approval for distribution of its test across the domestic Chinese market and the European Union with a CE mark.

Predictive is also pursuing procurement authorization through the Biomedical Advance Research and Development Authority (BARDA) under the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) in Health and Human Services (HHS). The Company cautions that if the federal government decides to restrict adequate reimbursement or the foreign import of products manufactured in Asia, the Company will not be able to provide access to these tests in the U.S.

Predictive Technology Group Addresses Use of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Treatment of Secondary Issues Related to Coronavirus

SALT LAKE CITY, March 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Predictive Technology Group (OTC PINK: PRED) (“Predictive” or “The Company”), today announced that last week it began communication with domestic and international agencies and groups to be a supplier of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for the potential clinical treatment of patients suffering from secondary issues related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). In other related news today the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) issued a statement on COVID-19, discussing practices and urging authorities to approve expanded umbilical cord stem cell infusions as a treatment. WWW.asipp.org/asipp-updates/STATEMENT-FROM-ASIPP-ON-COVID-19

ChinaXiv recently reported (March 2, 2020) the outcomes of seven patients with COVID-19 pneumonia enrolled in a clinical trial at Beijing YouAn Hospital, China. The clinical outcomes, as well as changes in inflammatory and immune function levels, and adverse effects of the enrolled patients were assessed over the 14 days following MSC injection. The patients were treated with MSCs derived from the Wharton’s jelly layer of the umbilical cord. The pulmonary function and symptoms of all seven patients with COVID-19 pneumonia were significantly improved within 2 days of the MSC transplantation.

Utilizing regenerative medicine technology with the administration of MSCs may help mitigate underlying COVID-19 associated lung damage. While this treatment is not a method to vaccinate nor cure the virus, the results reported in this publication indicate that infected patients may be more likely to combat and survive the related secondary issues of a COVID-19 infection if regenerative technologies are applied.

“Given our expertise and proprietary processes for isolating the MSC’s from source tissue, combined with our strong safety record in delivering tens of thousands of allografts to the market, it is not surprising that we have received a high number of inquiries regarding our potential involvement with this global health crisis,” said Bradley Robinson, CEO of Predictive Technology Group. “We are watching the development of clinical trials from around the world and remain poised to help in any we can, pending regulatory guidance. Our experience and capital investments over the past few years has equipped us with the expertise and ability to scale to meet demand,” added Robinson.

MSCs have the ability to differentiate into a variety of cell types and are able to resist viral attacks with the expression of interferon gamma stimulated genes (ISGs). With the ability to express ISGs, stem cells would be expected to survive even when transplanted into a patient with an active COVID-19 infection. Stem cells rejuvenate and regenerate cells in the body through various processes involving reduction of inflammation, secretion of substances that protect cells, transfer of mitochondria, reduction of cell death, anti-oxidative effects and improvement of immune system function. These effects are likely to increase survival in patients infected with COVID-19.

Additionally, there is evidence of stem cells aiding in the protection against viral infection. The influenza virus A/H5N1 is known to cause acute lung injury. With the injection of human MSCs, A/H5N1 was reduced in mice and the treatment increased rates of survival (Chan, et al, PNAS 113:3621, 2016).

Umbilical cord tissue is particularly rich in MSCs, which is why many parents choose to store them. As new clinical therapies are discovered, the importance of storing stem cells from perinatal tissue (umbilical cord and placenta) will become a critical source for individuals needing stem cell therapies in the future. 

Predictive Technology Group was the first to market and is the current market leader in the United States for the procurement and processing of umbilical cord tissue for clinical use. Predictive has operated its FDA-compliant commercial biologics manufacturing facility for several years. This facility is cGMP and cGTP compliant, ISO13485 certified, and FDA registered. All clinical manufacturing occurs in an ISO 7 certified sterile cleanroom with extensive and advanced testing to assure the absence of contamination.

“We are well positioned to have the procurement, processing and cell culturing expertise and scale to offer stem cell therapy for secondary issues related to COVID-19 infections in both domestic and international markets. While effective vaccines are being developed, US-based stem cell transplants represent a real opportunity to fight the virus and increase survival rates with patients infected worldwide,” Bradley Robinson added.

As the major commercial supplier of umbilical cord MSCs in the United States, Predictive is well positioned to continue its leadership role in ensuring a stable supply of this potentially life-saving intervention that has been associated with promoting the regeneration and repair of lung tissue damaged by acute respiratory viral infections, such as those caused by COVID-19. The company plans to evaluate potential research and commercial collaboration opportunities to supply stem cells either directly through Predictive, or in collaboration with other private and/or public entities.

Atrin Pharmaceuticals Adds Critical Genomics Capabilities in Advance of Initiating First Clinical Trial Through Ongoing Collaboration with Predictive Technology Group

Doylestown, PA – February 25, 2020 – Atrin Pharmaceuticals, a private biopharmaceutical company pioneering the discovery and development of proprietary molecules targeting DNA Damage and Repair (DDR) pathways to treat cancers that currently do not have effective therapies, today reported preliminary results from a collaborative genomics analysis that will be used to optimize patient selection for Atrin’s upcoming ATRN-119 clinical trial.  This genomics analysis was a result of Atrin’s collaboration with Predictive Technology Group to utilize next-generation genomics capabilities to improve predictive selection of clinical study patients most likely to respond and least likely to experience side effects from treatment with Atrin’s DDR drug candidates. 

Atrin and Predictive have been jointly developing proprietary approaches to better identify patients with specific mutations that drive cancer tumor growth, regardless of tumor type, and who are most likely to clinically respond to synthetically-lethal anti-cancer therapies. Predictive’s genomics capabilities were added to Atrin’s existing proprietary proteomic and medicinal chemistry technologies to improve targeting of DDR proteins that are active in cancer cells and relatively inactive in healthy cells, ahead of Atrin’s initiation of a Phase 1/2a clinical study of ATRN-119, Atrin’s lead oral drug candidate.

Predictive is using a genomic data base analytics approach to help with patient selection, to increase efficiencies and quality of clinical trials, and to shorten time to market for Atrin’s drug candidates. Atrin’s pipeline also includes preclinical drug candidates in development for glioblastoma and hematological disorders that are being advanced towards IND enabling studies.

Oren Gilad, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Atrin Pharmaceuticals, noted: “Our collaboration with Predictive, as shown in this genomics analysis, is already resulting in improved targeting of eligible patients for the upcoming Phase 1/2a ATRN-119 clinical study, and could potentially result in adoption of a new diagnostic for this type of anti-cancer treatment. Predictive’s unique genomic insights and modeling provide Atrin with enhanced diagnostic tools to accelerate Atrin’s DDR therapies and studies.”  Atrin currently expects initiation of the ATRN-119 Phase 1/2a study in 2020, with a first interim clinical readout in 2021.

Bradley Robinson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Predictive Technology Group, stated: “We are pleased to work with Atrin; their cutting-edge work in discovering and advancing DDR therapies will benefit cancer patients with unmet medical needs. We believe that the Atrin collaboration is a ‘game changer’ that will result in improved design and faster clinical advancement of multiple individualized, precision oncology treatments.  By combining our state-of-the-art proprietary screening assay and related artificial intelligence capabilities with Atrin’s breakthrough DDR therapy candidates, we have the potential to become a leader in development of improved personalized oncology therapies. Both of Predictive’s main entities, Predictive Laboratories and Predictive Analytics, are involved in this ongoing DDR research with Atrin.”

Cancer is genomic disease; cancer tumors typically develop when otherwise healthy cells acquire mutations in key “driver genes.” These cancer-causing mutations alter pathways regulating cellular growth and interactions with surrounding tissues.  Understanding the specific gene mutations underlying tumor formation is frequently more important than location of the cancer in selecting personalized anti-cancer therapies.

The key to successful cancer therapy is matching specific cancer mutations with efficient and targeted therapies. Multiple benign diseases, cancer-predisposition syndromes, and cancers have now been linked to mutations in DDR genes.  DDR is a clinically validated therapeutic approach, following the commercial approval of multiple blockbuster Poly ADP Ribose Polymerase (PARP) inhibitor products. DDR drugs already represent a multi-billion-dollar market, and it is expected that DDR drugs may ultimately be used to treat over 200 different cancer targets, if a full set of complementary patient-targeting biomarkers are successfully developed and adopted for commercial use.

Preliminary results from the collaborative genomics analysis using Predictive’s proprietary assays in patients with a specific tumor type found an excess of DDR mutations in cancer cells compared with normal tissue. The analysis identified 92 genes as protein responders to ATRN-119 treatment, of which 18 genes are known TIER 1 cancer-driver genes, and well-characterized mutations were found in three dominant genes. Both in vitro and animal studies have confirmed synthetically-lethal interactions between ATRN-119 treatment and alteration of these three key cancer-causing genes. The overlap between DDR genes responding to ATRN-119 and those mutated in cancer cells suggest that genetic markers underlying response and resistance will be critical to optimizing patient selection in ATRN-119 clinical studies, by increasing clinical efficacy and minimizing systemic toxicities.

Under the terms of the original Atrin-Predictive collaboration agreement, both companies will continue to contribute to the identification of additional druggable targets and pathways, both inside and outside of DDR, to treat a broad group of target indications, particularly in women’s health.
