AI-Enabled Scheduling Tool: RSViP™ – That Focuses Attention on Women Who Need Breast Screening the Most

As many as 3.9 million women in the U.S. missed their routine mammograms due to the COVID-19 pandemic,* creating a significant backlog of women to be scheduled as breast screening clinics have re-opened with reduced capacity and increased COVID-19 safety protocols. Kheiron Medical Technologies, an award-winning applied science company based in the United Kingdom, has launched RSViP™, a new artificial intelligence-enabled tool that helps breast screening programs optimize scheduling for women who are at risk for potentially developing breast cancer. Based on initial internal research, RSViP has been shown to flag higher risk women for screening. Earlier screening contributes directly to significantly earlier detection rates, which in turn leads to improved survivorship and a lower cost of care.

“Clinical research has shown that delays in breast cancer diagnosis can lead to worse outcomes, including the risk of the cancer metastasizing, decreased survivorship, and increased treatment costs,” comments Peter Kecskemethy, Kheiron’s Chief Executive Officer. “At Kheiron, our goal in bringing RSViP to the breast screening community is to leverage the power of AI to identify those women who should be scheduled for their mammograms first, based on her prior mammogram, allowing those women who would benefit most to be moved to the front of the line.”

RSViP works by analyzing images from each woman’s prior screening and assessing each case based on AI-detected signals of suspected lesions and the potential to develop breast cancer using machine learning insights. With an unbiased assessment for every unscreened woman, RSViP generates an actionable list that the breast screening scheduler can use to book appointments for women who may be most at risk of developing breast cancer. Women who are flagged by RSViP generally are considered to have risks present in some form in their previous mammogram in order to be detected and prioritized by the RSViP AI algorithm.

“Our internal clinical research suggests we can expect significantly earlier detection of cancers with RSViP scheduling, potentially resulting in more cancers detected sooner in prioritized cohorts of patients,” Kecskemethy states. “It is well known that earlier cancer detection gives the best chance of less invasive treatment, improved outcomes and survivorship, as well as a decreased cost of treatment.”

Recently Kheiron has concluded a successful pilot of RSViP with a large, multi-state U.S. breast screening provider that is planning on deploying RSViP for the benefit of their population and improving their health economics. RSViP is also being introduced to breast screening programs in Europe and the Middle East starting in late 2021.

Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”

“We are excited to present the first look at the safety and clinical activity of ELVN-001, which we believe supports the potential for ELVN-001 to address the limitations of the available active-site TKIs,” said Helen Collins, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Enliven. “Across a wide dose range, ELVN-001 demonstrated activity in a heavily pre-treated patient population that includes post-asciminib patients, with a preliminary safety profile consistent with its highly selective design. Not only did all evaluable patients have improved or stable BCR::ABL1 transcript levels, but, importantly, 89% of all patients enrolled remain on study. We believe the initial data demonstrate the potential clinical utility of ELVN-001 for all types of patients, including those that are earlier in the treatment paradigm.”
