Clinical SaaS

Shivom Ventures Limited releases its MVP which provides researchers with a Clinical SaaS-based platform to search for datasets and run genomic pipelines in three clicks of the mouse. 

London, United Kingdom – July 29, 2019 – Shivom, a biotechnology data discovery and analysis company optimising the way DNA is shared, secured and analysed through blockchain and AI technology, has released it’s long-awaited MVP. This release seeks to target data owners who are not only looking to securely store their DNA and other biodata but enable them to monetise their data within the research community. Through a combination of explicit consent mechanisms, blockchain and smart contract technology, data owners are provided traceability and complete control over their data.

The release will be made live to the public at 2:00 pm GMT on 29th July. This is a major milestone for Shivom, the company will now offer researchers the ability to search for datasets and run genomic pipelines in three-clicks of the mouse under their new clinical SaaS-based solutions.

“In my 20 years of experience working in the field and within biobanks led to the automation of analysis for the researchers on our platform. Using Shivom’s Clinical SaaS platform can help organisations not only reduce the cost of R&D but make research easy and accessible. Were stripping away the pre-requisites other bioinformatics platforms require the researcher to possess in order to run pipelines and tools such as GWAS or SAM Tools. With access to patient biosamples and open data, time is finally freed for the researchers who currently have to scour and prep data for analysis,” said Dr Darrol Baker, Head of Bioinformatics.

Shivom’s clinical SaaS solution will seek to solve pharma’s most hard-hitting challenges, lack of innovation in bioinformatics, increasing R&D costs and siloed data. These challenges have been solved through a unique approach by utilising the best in breed technologies at our disposal. “Utilising new innovative smart contract solutions are at the heart of the Shivom Platform to enable user consent and monetisation. Cloud-native bioinformatics analysis solutions to ensure data is always with Shivom and processing is lightning fast. Smart coding techniques for smarter smart contracts enabling storage of large amounts of data at a fraction of the gas cost. Innovative integration with Ethereum so that the user does not have to pay GAS cost to use smart contracts. Never before seen use cases for data owners to use their data as well as discover and use data on our platform. A platform for modern genomics,” said Meer Ali, Director of Technology.

Alongside updated permissions and an end-to-end solution for researchers, the MVP contains major updates to the consumer shop; offering additional 6 products, new UI and provides consumers with the choice of purchasing via OMX tokens or cash. One of the products Shivom will be offering for purchase is a DNA test which analyzes the 11 genes that are responsible for your skin’s hydration, elasticity, photoaging, and skin antioxidant protection, created by using the knowledge of modern genetics in skincare. By taking the DNA test you will receive a personalised report, which will provide you with general skincare recommendations which are important for your specific genotype. Another product that will be introduced is Strain Genie’s Cannabis DNA kit, which provides consumers with personalized insights and important warnings about how your body may or may not respond to specific cannabinoids, terpenes and strains of Cannabis.

“I’m incredibly proud of the team and their hard work and commitment to deliver on this critical milestone. With our MVP, enterprises and researchers have the ability to search and discover diverse datasets globally, enter into smart contracts with data owners and utilize our integrated, streamlined bioinformatics analysis and reporting features, while also benefiting from our blockchain-enabled audit and patient consent functionalities for compliance purposes. These innovative solutions represent a new paradigm for robust multi-omics analysis, which we anticipate will result in significant clinical efficiencies and ultimately the accelerated delivery of personalized care and therapies.” said Henry Ines, CEO of Shivom.

Following the MVP release, Shivom will focus its efforts on not only improving the customer experience but adding pipelines, support for other bioinformatic providers, enhanced reporting features and additional security layers to the Clinical Saas-based solution.

Hepatoblastoma

Shivom and cc-TDI to Advance Clinical Research for Hepatoblastoma & Other Rare Pediatric Diseases

Hepatoblastoma

Shivom Ventures Limited (“Shivom”) and Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute (“cc-TDI”) enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to explore a partnership for advancing clinical research and drug discovery for rare pediatric genetic diseases.

LONDON and PORTLAND – July 10, 2019 – Shivom, a biotechnology data and analysis company optimising the way DNA is shared, secured and analysed through blockchain and AI technology, has signed an MOU with cc-TDI, a unique non-profit organization focused on the ‘preclinical gap’ in childhood cancer research. The two entities will explore a partnership empower families with precision medicine solutions and community-driven data sharing for children suffering from Hepatoblastoma Tumors.  This approach is the next evolutionary step of the “It’s my Data” movement that makes patients into citizen-scientists (https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052970204621904577014330551132036).

Through this MOU, Shivom will utilize their AI and Blockchain powered patient recruitment platform and dynamic permissions & consent features to help cc-TDI to develop preclinical and eventual clinical solutions to combat this rare disease. Hepatoblastoma is a very rare cancerous tumour that starts in the liver. This disease primarily affects children from infancy to approximately 3 years of age. To date, developing a cure or new therapies is increasingly difficult because of the lack of Hepatoblastoma Genomes sequenced, partly pertaining to how extremely rare these genomes are and the subject matter of sequencing DNA from children below the ages 5. Shivom will leverage its global affiliate network and innovative clinical research & recruitment platform to help break these barriers in order to bring awareness and help make parents and legal guardians full partners in research for cures. “Shivom is proud to support cc-TDI with its critically important drug development research work to include tackling rare pediatric diseases such as hepatoblastoma, the most common primary liver tumor diagnosed in childhood. We plan to leverage our unique technology solutions and global recruitment platform to drive awareness and ultimately aim to secure the additional datasets and tissue samples needed to advance clinical research and expedite the delivery of a cure for hepatoblastoma and other rare genetic diseases afflicting children globally.” said Henry Ines, Chief Executive Office of Shivom.

To date, cc-TDI and its colleagues worldwide have collected less than 150 children’s hepatoblastoma tumours to determine DNA mutations and RNA-based gene expression. This is significantly low; researchers need more information in order to better understand the full range of mutations in this cancer. “Hepatoblastoma can have an outstanding outcome if surgery can remove the tumor, yet for those with refractory, metastatic or relapsed disease – the options are few.  The number of drug targets carefully explored for these desperate patients over ten years is less than a half-dozen, and primarily because so few datasets exist for patients with advanced disease.  The voucher system to be offered by Shivom, and the way in which the Shivom platform puts patients in control of data sharing represents a cultural shift in the precision medicine and the search for hepatoblastoma cures.”

Shivom and Family Care Path Launch Genetic Counselling Pilot

genetic counselling

Shivom Ventures Limited and Family Care Path have launched a Genetic Counselling Pilot in order to help patients from the United States have a deeper understanding of their genetic information through testing, counselling and the ties to family health history

London, United Kingdom and Cleveland, Ohio – July 1st, 2019 – Shivom Ventures Limited (“Shivom”), a biotechnology data and analysis company optimizing the way DNA is shared, secured and analyzed through blockchain and AI technology, and Family Care Path (FCP), a spin-off company from Cleveland Clinic, adapting and marketing web-based clinical decision support applications, have launched a telemedicine genetic counselling pilot today.

Shivom and Family Care Path will offer patients who have a family history of Cancer, Diabetes and or Cardiovascular issues genetic counselling sessions through CarePathConnect. These sessions will be available to purchase from Shivom’s shop for 1,000 tokens later next month. Following purchase, customers will be redirected to FCP’s MyLegacy application where they will be asked to fill out a unique health questionnaire. After the questionnaire has been completed, the patients will receive a Risk Assessment Report; this report will provide patients with an overview of their risk of inheriting certain genetic conditions. Once the patient has received their Risk Assessment Report they will be able to schedule a genetic counselling session with one of Family Care Path’s Genetic Counsellors. The pilot will only be available to patients who are living within the United States at this time.

 “We are excited to partner with the unique offerings of Shivom to provide individuals with powerful information to understand their family health history tied to genetic and hereditary risks. Our genetic risk tool, MyLegacy, combined with the support of genetic counselors provides expanded depth to the blockchain and AI capabilities of Shivom. We are confident this dynamic information will be insightful and beneficial to the end-users and their physicians,” said David McKee, CEO and President of Family Care Path.

 “For those who may be predisposed to or have a family history of cancer, diabetes or heart disease, undergoing genomic sequencing to gain additional insights may prove to be invaluable,” said Henry Ines, Chief Executive Officer of Shivom. “That said, interpreting sequencing results and understanding the appropriate therapeutic course of action may be challenging without the proper guidance from genomic counsellors. Accordingly, we are thrilled to work with Family Care Path, which maintains a network of certified, licensed clinical genetic counselors, who through the use of FCP’s proprietary risk assessment tools and its HIPAA compliant video telemedicine platform are able to help patients on a variety of critical matters ranging from better understanding potential risks associated with certain hereditary conditions, managing their health & wellness, mitigating against health risks to assessing the need for ordering additional genetic tests. We are excited to offer these additional resources to our customers in the US; eventually globally.”
