Oxipit to preview first autonomous AI medical imaging application at ECR

Mr Gediminas Peksys

Oxipit Medical Imaging Team

The application automatically identifies chest X-ray images with no abnormality and produces finalized reports without any intervention from the radiologist.

Automation of radiology is no longer a promise – it is finally here”

— Oxipit CEO Gediminas Peksys

VILNIUS, LITHUANIA, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The AI medical imaging company will showcase the first autonomous AI diagnostics application for healthy patient report automation. The new product by Oxipit automatically identifies chest X-ray images with no abnormality and produces finalized patient reports without any intervention from the radiologist. The application is pending CE mark certification and will be made available for commercial deployments in the Q3 2021.

“Automation of radiology is no longer a promise – it is finally here. It combines our long-term research with firsthand feedback from medical institutions on how AI diagnostics can benefit daily medical practice. We are excited to be the pioneers in the autonomous AI diagnostics field and strongly believe autonomous products will finally boost AI clinical adoption” – notes CEO of Oxipit Gediminas Peksys.

The new AI application will only produce automated reports for chest X-rays, where it is highly confident that the images feature no abnormalities. This allows the sensitivity metric to be higher than 99%. The application is validated using a 500.000 X-ray dataset from multiple medical institutions where Oxipit AI products are currently deployed. Depending on the type of medical institution, the platform can autonomously report on up to 15% of the daily radiologist’s workflow.

“Initially this would be most helpful for primary care and diagnostics centers, where up to 80% of all chest X-rays feature no abnormalities. Furthermore, a similar autonomy framework can be adapted for large scale screening projects, such as the global tuberculosis effort” – adds Mr Peksys.

The new application builds upon the foundation of Oxipit ChestEye, an earlier Oxipit platform for preliminary chest X-ray reports. Oxipit ChestEye can identify 75 radiological findings – approx. 90% of abnormalities encountered by radiologists on a daily basis.

“Supporting this vast library of radiological findings enables us to rule out any pathologies with high confidence and achieve zero false negative cases across our pilot product deployment sites” – says Mr Peksys.

Der CEO von iXensor spricht über eine sorgenfreie Wiedereröffnung der Wirtschaft mittels intelligentem COVID-19 Testing

iXensor CEO talks about reopening the economies with peace of mind

iXensor CEO talks about reopening the economies with peace of mind

BONN, GERMANY, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Während die meisten großen Volkswirtschaften weiterhin gegen steigende Infektionen und Todesfälle durch das neuartige Coronavirus kämpfen, ist Taiwan aufgrund seiner erfolgreichen Maßnahmen zur Bekämpfung von Pandemien bereits in der Lage, eine wirtschaftliche Belebung zu erzielen. Der CEO von iXensor, eingeladen vom Forschungsinstitut für westeuropäisches Büro für Industrietechnologie, hielt am 2. März während der Online-Konferenz "Taiwan als Vorbild in COVID-19 Bekämpfung" in Deutschland eine Rede, in der er Taiwans Fähigkeiten im Bereich der digitalen Gesundheit hervorhob .

iXensor, der Pionier der mobilen Gesundheit, nutzt das patentierte Beleuchtungs- und Bildsensormodul der PixoTech-Technologie, um die derzeitige Testbeschränkung des immunochromatografischen Lateral-Flow-Assays zu optimieren und das Risiko einer falschen Interpretation durch das menschliche Auge zu senken. Der digitalisierte PixoTest COVID-19-Antigentest liefert genaue und objektive Antigen-Testergebnisse in nur 5 Minuten.

Darüber hinaus bietet iXensor die Möglichkeit, Personen, die COVID-19-Tests durchführen müssen, zu befähigen, ihren SARS-CoV-2-Status mit einem verschlüsselten PixoHealth-Pass auf einem Mobiltelefon nachzuweisen. Traditionell erhielten die Testpersonen erst innerhalb von 1-3 Tagen Testresultate. Durch die Bereitstellung des digitalen COVID-19-Antigen-Schnelltests von iXensor und der PixoHealth Pass-App erhalten die Testpersonen sofort kostenlose Testergebnisse in der mobilen App. Dies erspart auch die manuelle Datenverwaltung von Gesundheitsfachkräften, die an vorderster Front tätig sind.

Darüber hinaus entwickelt iXensor eine weitere mobile Anwendung, die PixoHealth Pass Admin App, mit der Unternehmen ihren Geschäftsbetrieb problemlos aufrechterhalten können. Diese mobile Unternehmensanwendung soll Organisationen wie Herstellern, Unternehmen, Schulen, öffentlichen Orten und Veranstaltern dabei helfen, die Echtheit der COVID-19-Testergebnisse zum Zeitpunkt der Eingabe zu überprüfen. Mit einem einfachen, kontaktlosen QR-Code-Scan können Unternehmen jeder Größe den Gesundheitszustand von Mitarbeitern, Kunden, Studenten und Veranstaltungsteilnehmern auf einfache Weise überprüfen und validieren.

Dr. Carson Chen kam zum Schluss: „In der Zeit des digitalen Know-hows nutzen wir die Möglichkeiten der digitalen Konnektivität, um Taiwans Stärke sowohl in der ICT als auch in der Biotechnologie zu nutzen und die weltweit erste Gesamtlösung für intelligentes COVID-19-Management zu entwickeln. Wir streben danach, alle Nationen dabei zu unterstützen, die anhaltende Pandemie bald zu stoppen.“

Über iXensor
iXensor, der Pionier der mobilen Gesundheit, verwandelt Smartphones in mobile medizinische Diagnostik in Laborqualität. Im Jahr 2017 führte iXensor das PixoTest®-Blutzuckermesssystem als weltweit ersten von der US-amerikanischen FDA zugelassenen, kamera-basierten Smartphone-Bluttest ein. Basierend auf der PixoTech®-Plattform hat sich iXensor in das Selbsttesten von zuhause sowie die klinische Diagnose in den Bereichen Infektionskrankheiten, Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen und Frauengesundheit vorgewagt. Unsere Vision ist es, eine qualitativ hochwertige Gesundheitsversorgung zugänglich und zeitnah zu machen, indem wir den Paradigmenwechsel von Point-of-Care-Tests mit der hoch skalierbaren PixoTech® Plattform vorantreiben.

iXensor CEO talks about reopening the economies with peace of mind

In the digital-savvy era, we harness the power of digital connectivity, combining Taiwan’s strengths in ICT and biotech, to shape out the world’s first total solution of smart COVID-19 management. ”

— Dr. Carson Chen

BONN, GERMANY, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — While most major economies continue to strive against rising infections and deaths caused by the novel coronavirus, Taiwan has set itself up for an economic revival due to its successful pandemic control measures. The CEO of iXensor, Dr. Carson Chen, invited by the Society for Promotion of East West Knowledge Transfer, gave a speech during the online conference "Taiwan as a role model in combating COVID-19" on March 2nd, highlighting Taiwan’s digital health capabilities.

iXensor, the pioneer of mobile health, utilizes its patented lighting and image sensing PixoTech technology to overcome the current testing limitations of lateral flow immunochromatographic assays, and lower false interpretation risk by human eyes. iXensor’s digitized PixoTest COVID-19 Antigen Testing provides accurate and objective antigen test results in as short as 5 minutes.

In addition, iXensor runs the extra mile to empower people who need to undertake COVID-19 testing and prove their SARS-CoV-2 free status with an encrypted PixoHealth Pass on a mobile phone. Traditionally, testees would only receive test reports in 1-3 days. By deploying iXensor’s digital COVID-19 rapid antigen testing and PixoHealth Pass App, the testees receive immediate test results on the mobile app at no cost. This also eliminates the need for manual record management for healthcare professionals on the frontline.

Moreover, iXensor develops another mobile application, PixoHealth Pass Admin App, for organizations to sustain their business operations easily. This enterprise mobile application is designed to help organizations such as manufactures, corporations, schools, public places, and event organizers verify the authenticity of COVID-19 test results at the point of entry. With a simple, contactless QR code scan, access control is made easy for businesses of all sizes to screen and validate the health status of employees, customers, students, and event participants.

Dr. Carson Chen concluded that “In the digital-savvy era, we harness the power of digital connectivity, combining Taiwan’s strengths in ICT and biotechnology, to shape out the world’s first total solution of smart COVID-19 management. We aspire to support all nations in stopping the ongoing pandemic soon.”

Rejuvenate Biomed Secures EUR 3.2 Million Series A Round to Advance Development of Healthy Aging Products

Rejuvenate Biomed

HEUSDEN-ZOLDER, BELGIUM, March 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rejuvenate Biomed NV (“Rejuvenate”), a biomedical company developing prescription drugs for age-related diseases, announces it has completed a EUR 3.2 million Series A round. The funding is being used to advance the development of Rejuvenate’s lead candidate RJx-01 in both acute and chronic sarcopenia (disuse-induced and age-related muscle failure).

The financing included lead investor Vesalius Biocapital III and private non-disclosed investors, as well as existing investors. Additionally, Rejuvenate gratefully acknowledges the ongoing support of Flanders Innovation and Entrepreneurship (VLAIO) in non-dilutive funding. Concurrent with the closing, the company has bolstered its scientific advisory board, which is now composed of Dr. Johan Auwerx, MD, PhD, Dr. Eric Verdin, MD, PhD, Dr. Marco Sandri, MD, PhD, Dr. Bart Braeckman, PhD, Dr. Björn Schumacher, PhD, and Dr. Andrea Maier, MD, PhD. Furthermore, a clinical advisory board has been established which is led by Dr. Jean-Yves Reginster, MD, PhD.

Rejuvenate’s lead candidate RJx-01 is a novel, safe, orally administered, small molecule combination product being developed for sarcopenia, defined by loss of muscle strength, quality and mass. The product was derived from an extensive in silico systems biology program, which mapped existing drugs with curated longevity pathways to create innovative, synergistic and highly effective combinations. RJx-01 has demonstrated strong preclinical evidence in multiple models and, with human safety data on hand for the individual compounds, the company plans to move the program into Phase Ib/IIb clinic trials later this year.

Dr. Ann Beliën, PhD, Founder and CEO of Rejuvenate: “We are very pleased to welcome our lead investor Vesalius Biocapital III as well as the other new investors and wish to thank our existing shareholders for their continued support. Our team is highly driven to deliver therapeutics with a meaningful impact on the treatment and prevention of multiple age-related diseases by tackling their root causes. Using safe products as building blocks to develop innovative combinations such as RJx-01 has created unique opportunities in this field. Our dream of extending people’s health span is becoming a reality.”
Mr. Stéphane Verdood, MBA, MSc, Managing Partner at Vesalius Biocapital III: “Rejuvenate’s data show the potential for RJx-01 to drive our natural capacity to self-restore our cells. The company has a solid scientific and clinical basis coupled with a management team that is rapidly advancing RJx-01 for sarcopenia, and we are excited to be part of the next stage of the company’s growth.”

MURDER AND MYSTERY IN THE UTOPIA OF EGYPT
by one of Canada’s top thriller authors, MELISSA YI

SOUTH GLENGARRY, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Released and published by Wildtree Press!
The book is available worldwide in digital and print across all platforms!

"ER meets Homeland in a frenetic Egyptian adventure. Hope Sze turns her medical crimefighting into an international incident. Terrorism, tombs, sarcasm, and sex.”—Dr. Frank Warsh, author of Hippocrates: the Art and the Oath

"Scorpion Scheme is top-notch historical crime fiction with a fabulous kick-ass female protagonist. The kind of book that you just can't put down. Scorpion Scheme is Robin Cook meets D.J. McIntosh's fabulous Mesopotamian trilogy but it delivers a stingingly good tale all on its own steam."—Lisa de Nikolits, author of The Rage Room

PHARAOHS' TOMBS. ANCIENT MYTHS. MODERN-DAY MURDER

Dr. Hope Sze doesn't need a free trip to Egypt.

She can't afford the flight to Cairo, or the cruise down the Nile, so she'd keep studying in Canada-except her fiancé, Dr. John Tucker, yearns to patrol the pyramids and confront the curse on King Tutankhamun's tomb.

So when a company offers them both a free stay in Cairo in exchange for a month's work in an emergency department, Tucker lobbies for a pre-honeymoon in the Valley of Kings and Queens, investigating the windswept temple of Hatshepsut, or scuba diving in the Red Sea.

Instead, within 90 minutes of arrival, Hope drops to her knees outside the Grand Egyptian Museum, desperate to save a now-comatose 87-year-old Johannesburg man who'd raved about Kruger and treasure after receiving a nail through his skull.

Tucker fixates on their one chance at the legendary Kruger Millions, a rumoured fortune that many believe lies secretly stowed somewhere in South Africa.

Since their combined student debt load totals half a million dollars, Tucker can't pass up the possibility of a treasure trove in buried gold.

Hope launches into her first mystery based in a birthplace of human civilization.
Where the evil god Set battled righteous Horus and Isis in an 80-year war.
Where wealth and power clash with political revolution.

Where Antony fell in love with Cleopatra.

Where Hope and Tucker must outwit, or fall prey, to a ruthless criminal mastermind.

Praise for the Hope Sze series

#1 Mystery Selection—CBC Books, on Human Remains. Recommended authors also include Louise Penny and Maureen Jennings

One of the best Canadian suspense books recommended by Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail, on Human Remains
"Smart and sassy."—Jim Napier, Reviewing the Evidence

MORE FROM MELISSA YI:

Terminally Ill: Where magic meets murder
(Hope Sze medical mystery Book 3)

HOUDINI WHODUNIT

Magic? Dr. Hope Sze steers clear of magic.

But when “Elvis the Escape King” chains and nails himself inside a coffin on the anniversary of Houdini's death, in Montreal’s St. Lawrence River, he can’t break free.

Soon after Hope restarts his heart and saves his life, Elvis demands to know who sabotaged his stunt.

Hope hung up her amateur detective badge to tend to cancer patients on palliative care.

Next, she'll transfer to Ottawa and join her ex-paramour, Ryan. No more unspeakable Montreal drivers and stymied medical care. No more working with the charming yet infuriating Dr. Tucker.
Hope the Escape Artist can afford to act generous. As a parting gift to Montreal, city of festivals and murderers, she'll save Elvis’s sanity as well as his skin.

And so Hope plunges into her most unconventional and most terminal adventure yet.

Where the magical art of escape and the subtle skill of crime vie for centre stage, and the better man may lose. Forever.

"[T]his novel demonstrates familiarity with the conventions of mysteries without being constrained by them and with the realities of Canada's medical world. Although the tone is light, the author is not afraid to introduce darker themes. The three intertwining mysteries and Hope herself provide a narrative by turns entertaining and insightful." —Publishers Weekly

"Narrating in a sprightly style while sharing some of the nitty-gritty of a resident's job, Hope Sze is an utterly likeable character."—Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership (PPSPP) in Colorado Springs, CO has announced the release of a series of nine new videos, which are educational in nature and cover the challenging topics of youth suicide, gun safety, suicide in the military (active duty or veteran), another that features PPSPP programs and one that discusses COVID’s effect on the agency’s mission, among other topics. The video series can be viewed at this link. Click here.

The Pikes Peak Suicide Prevention Partnership (PPSPP) has been serving individuals and families since 1993. Founded by local women with personal reasons for bringing the issue of suicide into the public eye, PPSPP began as a crisis line center for suicide prevention and is now a resource center where clients are connected to referral services and a peer support program. They also operate a 24/7 peer support program to provide intervention, especially overnight, so ‘nobody has to sit in the darkness alone’.

“The new video series will enhance our mission to unite the community in addressing suicide in the Pikes Peak Region through education, intervention and postvention,” said Cassandra Walton, Executive Director, “Suicide is a perceived solution to an overwhelming problem. PPSPP provides outreach and awareness events, suicide prevention trainings, support groups and individual counseling. All services are provided at no cost.”

Walton has been working with PPSPP for just over a year and became involved after a loss of a close family friend. “A string of youth suicides rocked the Colorado Springs in 2016-2017,” Walton said. “Various community initiatives started up in response to those losses and PPSPP was contracted by the El Paso County Health Department to complete a research project called the, “Teen Think Tanks.” We interviewed hundreds of teens about what they thought suicide prevention in schools should look like. I then felt compelled to help make some of their ideas a reality,” she explained.

Walton feels that it’s important for the community to see the video series because “one of our strongest arms of prevention is an informed public. We need people to be exposed to the concept of suicide prevention. The more people who know, the more lives we can save – especially when it comes to underserved groups like men and our community’s military personnel. We want people in need to make sure that they are getting help – whatever that may be.”

PPSPP provides education through outreach events and suicide prevention trainings. The agency’s interventions include clinical and peer support services. For postvention they provide immediate support to individuals, families and organizations impacted by a suicide loss through communication, crisis and bereavement support and peer support services.

In one of the feature videos, Walton talks about how COVID-19 has affected teen suicide. “Youth suicide is a hot topic in our community since the pandemic hit. PPSPP has worked to proactively address topics like isolation and pandemic fatigue,” said Walton. “We understand that many parents have been stressed out and teens feel like they don’t want to be an added burden to the household. We have to remember that many who are struggling are not in a place to reach out and so we must get creative and be tenacious about “reaching in” to them.”

A male client shared that having access to free services was hugely important. He stated that “people need to start talking about mental illness and suicide. Men need to get over the stigma and believe that it’s OK to reach out for help.” PPSPP’s partnership with NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) classes and M.A.N. Up (Mental Accountability Network), started by a PPSPP volunteer inspired by their experience with the agency, have been crucially important. “If I had succeeded in my suicide attempt, I would have missed out on so many things. Finding a safe space to share my struggles has literally saved my life. I have been able to get all of that stuff out and people don’t judge me when I do it; I can tell I am a healthier person.”

P&A President Michael Perini said, “The firm is honored and grateful that PPSPP placed their trust in our video services to help their organization spread the word about suicide prevention efforts as well as encourage more individuals to find the professional help they need.”

Walton stated that the hardest part of her job is getting the call or waking up to a news story about another loss to suicide. “I force myself to find out the details of these losses, so I can learn what service or resource could have made the difference for that person,” she said. “Suicide prevention is a complex issue with a lot of moving parts. It is important that making these videos available, either through us or through connections with community partners, shows that help, and hope, are always nearby.”

IntuitiveX Proves Success of Early Stage Life Sciences Commercialization Model

IntuitiveX, a premier life sciences consulting firm and incubator, demonstrates success of its differentiated model for commercializing early stage startups.

SEATTLE, WA, UNITED STATES, March 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — IntuitiveX, a premier life sciences consulting firm and incubator demonstrates the success of its differentiated model for commercializing early stage life sciences companies and has the results to prove it.

After recognizing pain points unique to the life sciences, serial entrepreneur, investor, and physician Dr. Jeffrey Roh, CEO of IntuitiveX, discovered a proprietary methodology and model for catalyzing life sciences startups which has become the cornerstone of IntuitiveX. The methodology and model offer a way to assess the current and future growth potential of early stage life sciences startups while providing a one-stop shop approach to solving these unique growth challenges via consultancy and incubation.

“After repeatedly going through the life sciences maze of innovation as investors, entrepreneurs, and innovators, IntuitiveX has been able to better understand how to efficiently navigate through the complexities of early stage life sciences commercialization. We’ve observed that the more we repeat the maze of testing and validating the model with our clients, the more we iterate on our approach, and the more long-term value we create.” said Dr. Jeffrey Roh, CEO of IntuitiveX.

Since its inception, IntuitiveX has generated millions in value for its investors, portfolio companies, and shareholders and has realized noteworthy portfolio company successes. To name a few, recently AltPep, a Seattle-based biotech startup tackling amyloid protein disorders including Alzheimer’s Disease, raised $23M in series A financing. CarlsMed, leveraging machine learning technologies and prior outcomes data to personalize the treatment for complex adult spinal deformities, has raised $12.6M in funding and recently was granted breakthrough device designation by the FDA. NavLab, a medical IP holding company, generated an IRR of 181% and has a history of creating and selling novel medical device IP assets within the surgical robotics & AI/ML space. Amplify Surgical, developer of a dual expanding interbody fusion system, has surpassed more than 800+ surgical cases and Auctus Surgical, developer of technologies focused on non-fusion scoliosis correction, recently was awarded Best Technology In Spine by OrthopedicThisWeek, a prestigious orthopedic publication. In aggregate, IntuitiveX’s overall portfolio company growth has been staggering, not including the value it has provided for its service clients.

Within a few years, IntuitiveX has been assisting life sciences companies in the following ways: fast-tracking & co-inventing new IP, supporting international commercialization within the U.S., scaling portfolio companies by oversubscribing on seed and Series A rounds across digital health, medtech, pharma, & biotech, opening access into a pipeline of early-stage companies, spearheading FDA servicing, IP commercialization, IP acquisition, business development, joint venture development, mergers, and staffing, and hosting exclusive life sciences events.

“We see great ideas and products ultimately fall short of success because they either do not fully prepare for commercial challenges ahead or they approach hurdles to commercialization in a piecemeal manner. Lack of coordination and integration (e.g. regulatory approval fragmented from IP, product validation devoid of clinical and strategic KOL buy-in, etc.) leads to inefficiencies, gaps, and delays in successful commercialization.” Amy Chen, VP of Client Services.

The IntuitiveX approach assesses key success factors when building a roadmap to commercialization. These vital ingredients are aggregated from their collective experience in launching life science endeavors and prioritized in a balanced approach to business, intellectual property (IP), clinical, and scientific aspects of a strong and de-risked startup company. Utilizing a closed incubation model and a one-stop shop consultancy model, startups are able to get holistic support in the validation, strategy, and execution needed to bring life sciences products to market.

About IntuitiveX
IntuitiveX is a premier life science consulting firm and incubator based in Seattle, Washington that specializes in growing early-stage life science startups and supporting international companies seeking commercialization within the U.S. across medical devices, biotech, Pharma, and digital health. With a team of life science entrepreneurs, physicians, investors, and innovators, we bring a combined 100+ years of experience supporting startups from ideation to commercialization.
