Iris BioTechnologies Announces Its BioWindows 3-Risk Scores System for Multi-Omic Analysis in the War Against Cancer and Other Diseases

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - May 23, 2016) - Iris BioTechnologies Inc. (OTC PINK: IRSB) announces its BioWindows™ 3-Risk Scores System for Multi-Omic Analysis, which will be offered through its subsidiary, Iris Wellness Labs. The System performs intricate correlations, while presenting results in a user-friendly visual format, allowing physicians and patients to understand and act on complex molecular information.

Simon Chin, Iris BioTechnologies President and CEO, stated, "The 3-Risk system can have an immediate impact on saving and improving the quality of life for many people. Through decades of dedicated hard work, Iris makes things easier for its customers."

With Iris's 3-Risk™ Analysis System, a patient can see his or her risk of disease, mortality and recurrence for a variety of diseases using a combination of genomics, proteomics, and other analytics. This offers an opportunity for physicians and patients to discuss medical treatment, disease-free survival and overall survival in a more informed context.

Each person's unique DNA is important, but life involves a continuous conversation between a person's DNA and its molecular world. To turn the vast pool of molecular activity into clinically useful information, one must look at the whole picture: DNA sequence, gene expression, protein expression, lifestyle and environment.

In analyzing DNA itself, it is important to understand single molecule substitutions, insertions and deletions, copy number variations, and chromosome translocations. Getting one's DNA sequenced is just the beginning. What is more important is to understand the significance of the changes in one's DNA.

Using next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, one's DNA variances can be examined for personal medical risk association. Variances may be sorted into different categories such as known disease-associated mutation, predicted disease-associated mutation, variant of unknown significance, and others. Knowing the right categorization and seeing risk association easily has the potential to inform and save lives.

NGS can also be used to determine gene expression. In the Iris 3-Risk System, gene expression and protein expression information, obtained by using technologies that exist today, are incorporated into the analysis process.

Iris's approach involves complex Big Data analytics, genomics, and proteomics, in relation to wellness and disease progression. The company's technology is based upon the understanding of medicine, biology, chemistry, nanotechnology, semiconductor manufacturing, and microfluidics. Iris has created intellectual properties in methods, devices, and systems.

Cancer Treatment: Getting the Right Actionable Information

President Richard Nixon declared the "War on Cancer" more than 40 years ago. While progress has been made in some areas, cancer remains the emperor of all maladies. With the Iris 3-Risk Scores System, Iris can overcome the problem of getting too little information or being seized by information overload. Getting the right information at the right time can be a matter of life and death.

A picture is worth a thousand words. To see a sample image of part of the Iris BioWindows 3-Risks System, please look at the "Investor Presentation" posted on the Iris website at ir.irisbiotech.com under Quick Links. Cancer, human genomes, and the Iris 3-Risk System are complex and cannot be adequately described in a press release. To better understand how they are related, please read, "Understanding the Genome" under Quick Links.

In the Iris BioWindows 3-Risks System, the smart phone will be the primary medical interface between Iris, consumers, patients, and the medical community. We also enable computer access to secure, cloud-based, vital wellness and medical information.
