IPA's Subsidiary, BioStrand, Announces Advanced Large Language Model (LLM) for Electronic Health Records (EHR)

Dirk Van Hyfte MD, PhD, Head of Technology, IPA, to present live demonstration at the InterSystems Global Summit 2024 June 9-12, 2024 - National Harbor, Maryland

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA), June 03, 2024 - IPA (IMMUNOPRECISE ANTIBODIES LTD.) (the "Company" or "IPA") (NASDAQ: IPA), an artificial intelligence-driven biotherapeutic research and technology company, today announced that its Belgian subsidiary, BioStrand, is leveraging their patented Foundation AI Model, LENSai, by applying advanced Large Language Models (LLM) to capture real world data from Electronic Health Records (EHR). LENSai  significantly enhances the analysis and integration of EHR data, enabling the integrated use of real-world data and evidence in drug discovery and the development of precision medicines.

"IPA's partners and customers are experiencing impactful results from the LENSai next generation, HYFT® enabled in silico tools, as they strive to analyze and utilize increasing volumes of rich biological data. These valued partners and customers, as well as potential new users, often encounter challenges with existing omics processing platforms, which struggle to connect diverse datasets. Using LENSai, IPA has recently demonstrated the ability to generate novel in silico antibodies to challenging diseases where traditional technologies have failed. The ability to efficiently and effectively utilize EHR further strengthens our value proposition", stated Dr. Jennifer Bath, President and CEO of IPA.

"IPA's BioStrand group continues to innovate.  This model has the potential of dramatically simplifying the connection between real-world evidence and therapeutic discovery and development." said Jeff Fried, Director of Platform Strategy & Innovation at InterSystems. "We're proud that they are using InterSystems IRIS; with over 40 years' experience in EHR integration, the InterSystems IRIS platform is uniquely suited to support BioStrand's breakthroughs."

Positioning EHR as a High-Value Commodity

As tech giants like Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, and Alphabet invest heavily in health and wellness, EHRs have become a critical commodity. By integrating EHRs, BioStrand enhances its ability to analyze and utilize vast amounts of health data. This capability enables BioStrand to deliver superior insights and drive innovation in the rapidly evolving healthcare market.

BioStrand's business opportunity is centered around leveraging its Foundation AI model to drive innovation in drug discovery and precision medicine. The integration of this functionality further strengthens BioStrand's ability to scale its operations and expand its market reach, positioning the company as a frontrunner in the biopharmaceutical industry.

"The integration of clinical patient data encapsulated in EHR systems within our Foundation AI model represents a major step forward," stated Dirk Van Hyfte MD, PhD, Head of Technology, IPA (Co-Founder and Head of Innovation, BioStrand). "This pre-commercial model allows us to leverage extensive patient data, making more informed decisions and accelerating the development of personalized therapies."

By invitation, Dr. Dirk Van Hyfte will provide a live demonstration to industry leaders and developers at the upcoming InterSystems Global Summit 2024, June 9-12, 2024, in National Harbor, Maryland.
