Ayasdi Named Best of Show and Best Practices Winner at Bio-IT World 2014

Ayasdi Shares Editors' Choice Best Practices Award With Collaborator The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai for Its Use of Ayasdi Cure to Battle Diabetes

MENLO PARK, CA and BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/14 -- Bio-IT -- Ayasdi (www.ayasdi.com) today announced the company was named the grand prize winner of both of the Bio-IT World 2014 awards. Ayasdi is the only company to be recognized for both an innovative solution, Ayasdi Cure, and for that solution's key role in a breakthrough medical discovery. The new Ayasdi Cure application was selected Best of Show grand prize winner for Informatics Tools and Data. Separately, Ayasdi and The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai were named the Bio-IT World 2014 Editors' Choice Best Practices Award grand prize winner for their collaboration and discovery in Diabetes research.

Best of Show Award: Ayasdi Cure Catalyzes Next Generation Precision Medicine
Ayasdi Cure is a new application designed to help pharmaceutical and biotech companies accelerate the drug discovery process by 50% in the era of precision medicine. Ayasdi Cure runs on Ayasdi's award-winning machine learning platform, which merges hundreds of algorithms with Topological Data Analysis (TDA) and obviates the need for queries or coding.

According to a recent report by PhRMa, on average it takes 10-15 years to develop a drug and costs more than $1.2B, with many industry estimates putting that cost even higher. By contrast, the Ayasdi Cure application streamlines the discovery process -- including Research and Discovery, Compound Selection, Preclinical Testing, Clinical Testing, and Regulatory Review -- by rapidly identifying compounds, drug targets, biomarkers, and adverse events from a variety of public and private biological and clinical data. Ayasdi Cure reduces the time and cost associated with this process by lowering analysis time and discovering novel insights.

Best Practices Award: Innovating the Understanding of Type 2 Diabetes
Mount Sinai utilized Ayasdi Cure to analyze over 11,000 patient medical records paired with genetic data. With Ayasdi Cure, Mount Sinai was able to gain new breakthrough insights that can dramatically impact how Type 2 Diabetes patients are diagnosed and treated. Based on the shape of the data, Mt. Sinai discovered that Type 2 Diabetes is not a singular disease. This breakthrough in Precision Medicine can lead to more effective treatment protocols and better patient outcomes for all Type 2 Diabetes patients.

Bio-IT World's Best of Show and Best Practices programs recognize innovative solutions to important problems facing the Life Sciences industry, and are judged by a team of leading industry experts and Bio-IT World editors.
