PathAI Announces PLUTO: a State-of-the-art Foundation Model to Enhance AI-powered Pathology Tools

PathAI

PathAI, a global leader in AI-powered pathology, today announced the launch of Pathology Universal Transformer (PLUTO), a pathology-centric foundation model, to further differentiate their portfolio of products geared towards biopharma and pathology laboratory customers. In machine learning, a foundation model 1 (FM) is a model trained using self-supervised learning on a large scale of unlabeled data to mathematically capture salient information from inputs to the model. Once trained, the FM can be adapted to enable specific tasks in new contexts, especially including previously unforeseen contexts and tasks. The process of adapting a high-quality FM yields better downstream pathology tools, with lower development time and cost, than building bespoke tools from scratch. For example, a pathology FM may be adapted variously to perform cell and nucleus segmentation at microscopic scale on immunohistochemistry (IHC) slides, or to perform histological subtyping at macro-scale for H&E slides. Developing high-quality FMs is particularly important and complex in pathology where there are many different kinds of tasks at different scales of the whole slide image (WSI) data including cell, tissue, and (whole) slide levels. PathAI’s PLUTO was developed to enable this wide diversity of pathology tasks, and was trained using hundreds of millions of unlabeled image patches from about 160,000 WSIs across 30+ disease areas, numerous indications, stains, scanner types and magnification, and over 50 sources of data. To learn high-quality representations of the unlabeled training data, PathAI researchers designed a pathology-focused self-supervised training process using multi-scale, flexible deep vision transformer architectures with novel training objectives. Researchers then evaluated the quality of the resulting FM by adapting it to a wide diversity of pathology-specific tasks, and found that PathAI’s FM outperforms current state-of-the-art models on (whole) slide, cellular and subcellular tasks. Additionally, PathAI’s FM enables building AI-powered pathology tools at multiple scales and resolutions, and is significantly more compact than previously published models, driving massive reductions in training and inference costs, and enabling highly scalable data generation and product development. PLUTO and its adaptations are set to power PathAI’s best-in-class suite of AI products 2 for diagnostic pathology labs and biopharma use. PLUTO will be adapted to develop the next generation of PathAI’s best-in-class products. PLUTO’s embeddings will enable prediction of underlying molecular alterations driving cancer and disease phenotypes–including those previously hidden to AI–as well as the discovery of new biomarkers and therapeutic targets. “PLUTO is meticulously designed to fuel research efforts for better diagnostic and prognostic tools across multiple disease areas. This technology will enable users to compress their pathology workflows using an exceptionally diverse, multi-resolution foundation model at significantly greater speed and a much broader scale than before,” said Harsha Pokalla, Head of Machine Learning at PathAI. “Our aim is to deploy this single, robust model to address a diverse range of applications and use cases within pathology and to continue developing new high performance AI tools that serve our mission to improve patient outcomes.” Footnotes Foundation Models are for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. PathAI’s AI products are for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. About PathAI PathAI is the leading precision pathology company providing software and AI-enabled solutions to all pathologist stakeholders including laboratories, research institutions, and the biopharma industry. Rigorously trained and validated with data from more than 15 million annotations, its AI-powered models can be leveraged to optimize the analysis of pathology samples to improve efficiency and accuracy of pathology interpretation, as well as to better gauge therapeutic efficacy and accelerate drug development for complex diseases.

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/rq8XcHBnPw0 Cancer doesn’t discriminate by age today. Consider celebrities like Chadwick Boseman, who died from colon cancer; Olivia Munn, who recently underwent a double mastectomy; Ninja, a popular streamer on Twitch diagnosed with skin cancer; and Catherine, the Princess of Wales, who is currently being treated for the disease. All of them were diagnosed before the age of 50. Why is this happening and what can we do to catch it early? There are several reasons: diet, lifestyle, and environmental factors. The College of American Pathologists is emphasizing the importance of early detection, screening, and being vigilant regarding symptoms. A nationwide media tour was conducted to discuss this important issue featuring Dr. Donald Karcher, president of the College of American Pathologists. Topics that Dr. Karcher discussed included: · What is behind the soaring trend of younger adults being diagnosed with cancer? · What symptoms to look for to improve cancer outcomes. · What cancers can and should be screened for? · What if you don’t meet the minimum age requirements for screening but are having symptoms? · Discussing the importance of early detection.

Triomics automates oncology workflows with GenAI powered platform, raises $15M

Triomics

Currently, oncology staff must manually search thousands of patient health records to find the right trials or care pathways for their patients. Triomics is today announcing it has raised $15M to help cancer centers streamline these workflows and process oncology data at scale by applying their framework to build, institution-tuned large language models (OncoLLM™) and use case-specific software. The company has raised from several Silicon Valley firms making pioneering investments in generative AI and healthcare, including Lightspeed, Nexus Venture Partners, General Catalyst and Y Combinator. Manual chart review can take hours per patient, and many health systems face significant backlogs in completing key oncology-related workflows for thousands of patients. This workload leads to clinical delays, such as patients missing out on clinical trials or biomarker-driven treatments, lagging quality reporting, and provider dissatisfaction and turnover. Triomics co-founders Sarim Khan (CEO) and Hrituraj Singh (CTO) were college friends who later worked as an MIT biotech researcher and Adobe AI researcher, respectively. They knew software existed to quickly analyze the ~20% of medical data that is stored in a uniform, structured manner, like a patient’s demographics or laboratory values. However, they realized recent advances in generative AI created the possibility of similarly analyzing the ~80% of medical data that exists in an unstructured format, like a doctor’s free-text note. “Hrituraj and I decided to partner to build solutions leveraging the advances in the field of generative AI and LLMs to help hospital staff,” said Sarim Khan, CEO of Triomicss. “We want our solutions to reason and sound like experts in oncology.” After developing an OncoLLM™ with Medical College of Wisconsin researchers, Triomics found that, in just minutes, it found 90% of eligible patients for clinical trials, which would have taken days or weeks for qualified nurses. It also extracted structured data points from unstructured notes at similar or higher accuracy to proprietary models like GPT4 or Claude while being 40 times cheaper. Triomics recently also published the results of its information retrieval engine for oncology, which they found to be 1.5-2 times better than other state-of-the-art retrieval models. “Most of the solutions on the market today claim they use GenAI, but many lack published evidence. Triomics is setting themselves apart by taking a truly collaborative approach to co-developing these models,” said Bradley Taylor, Chief Research Informatics Officer at the Medical College of Wisconsin and Director of the CTSI Center for Biomedical Informatics. Anai Kothari, a surgical oncologist at the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Center added: “The ability to quickly and accurately convert complex cancer data into a format that can be used to improve patient care is crucial. Triomics has been a great partner in integrating our suggestions and rigorously studying their approach to ensure safety.” OncoLLM™ powers proprietary Triomics software that integrates with health system EHRs to complete specific clinical and administrative tasks. For example, Triomics Prism aids in patient-trial matching by prescreening oncology patients with upcoming appointments to find relevant clinical trials. Triomics Harmony curates EHR data to support quality reporting, cohort analysis and precision oncology. Hrituraj Singh, CTO at Triomics, commented: “Our investments in our core areas of focus have been deliberate. We have successfully merged expertise in two complex functional areas: our AI researchers, who are specialized in customizing language models to specific domains, and our clinical staff, who have decades of oncology-specific experience. As a result, our software can complement the strengths of these advanced models while also proactively addressing potential flaws, all with the intricacies of cancer research and care in mind.” Given the heightened importance of accuracy for oncology data, Triomics partners with leading academic cancer centers and researchers to develop generative AI performance and safety benchmarks and best practices. Partners include the Collaboration for Oncology-focused LLM Training (COLT), a consortium of leaders from a dozen NCI-designated cancer centers, and the Cancer Informatics for Cancer Centers (CI4CC) Society. “We differentiate ourselves by building tailored models specifically for oncology and pairing them with GenAI native workflows,” said Sarim Khan. “While other solutions address some of the use cases we’re working on, like patient-trial matching, they are broad based solutions that use or modify legacy technologies that have proven not to have the scalability or ROI the industry is requesting.” Triomics next plans to publish additional data on OncoLLM efficacy across a diversity of settings and patient populations, and develop software that powers additional use cases. “Triomics is leveraging existing healthcare datasets and Generative AI to empower hospital staff to automate clinical trials and streamline cancer center workflows,” said Dev Khare, partner at Lightspeed. “We are excited to back Triomics in this important mission.” “With robust early results for their proprietary oncology specific LLMs and partnerships with leading cancer care and research centers, Triomics is well poised to deliver significant value to cancer care providers and patients in the U.S. and globally,” said Jishnu Bhattacharjee, managing director at Nexus Venture Partners. “We are thrilled to partner with Sarim and Hrituraj to help build a remarkably impactful company!" About Triomics Triomics uses generative AI to streamline workflows for cancer centers. Its oncology specialized generative AI model (OncoLLMTM) and use case-specific software help cancer providers process free-text health record data at scale, match patients to clinical trials, improve quality of care operations, deliver precision oncology and more. Based in San Francisco, the company has raised $15 million from leading VC investors.
