Information accessible to the public – Copies of the prospectus, approved on 4 December 2018 under number 18-545 by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers, are available free of charge and on request from PrediLife, (39 rue Camille Desmoulins – 94800 Villejuif, France), and on the websites of the AMF (www.amf-france.org) and the Company (www.predilife.com).
PrediLife draws the public’s attention to the risks relating to business activities described in chapter 4 “Risk factors” in the first section of the prospectus and the risks related to the offering described in chapter 2 “Offering-related risk factors” in the second section of the prospectus.
PrediLife develops innovative predictive medicine solutions that combine proven medical techniques (genetic testing, medical imaging etc.) with mathematical models using a large amount of statistical data, which potentially allow individuals to ascertain their own risk profile regarding the occurrence of a large number of serious diseases.
The company markets its MammoRisk® personalised breast cancer screening solution in Europe and the United States. The solution combines medical imaging – using its proprietary DenSeeMammo software for measuring breast density – with Big Data and statistics through a scoring tool that uses patient-related data (age, breast density, family history, biopsy results, ethnic origin) and a study of the patient’s genetic profile through a genetic test, to establish a polygenic risk score. The solution addresses demand among women and medical practitioners for screening programmes that are personalised according to the risk of breast cancer.
PrediLife is in charge of assessing breast cancer risks as part of the European MyPeBS reference study. The study’s main aim is to compare the current screening approach – where age is the only criterion used – with a new screening strategy based on each woman’s risk level. Another aim of the MyPeBS study is to produce European guidelines for the introduction of personalised screening.
Personalised screening is likely to have a major impact on public health, initially by reducing the number of cases in which breast cancer is diagnosed only at an advanced stage, and eventually by reducing the breast cancer mortality rate.
