About Us
Why we founded PRiiMO
Our Patients

Prostate cancer is the second most frequent cancer in men and the fifth leading cause of death worldwide. Most prostate cancer patients have several treatment pathways to consider. Immediate treatment carries the risk of severe side effects such as incontinence or erectile dysfunction.


However, in most cases patients only require Active Surveillance and can delay treatment for many years. Unfortunately, only 30% of all patients diagnosed are placed on Active Surveillance, while the majority often perform unnecessary and harmful treatment.

Our Mission

Choosing a treatment option is complicated and can vary greatly based on the stage of the cancer, the patient’s age, overall health and life expectancy, as well as personal preferences.

PRiiMO’s mission is to personalize the prevention, screening, diagnosis, monitoring, treatment and post-treatment of these patients, minimizing risk and treatment costs, and maximizing the number of normal life years.

Our Vision

PRiiMO has embarked on a journey to define and create the world’s most comprehensive database, providing patient-specific monitoring and treatment of prostate cancer. PRiiMO optimizes the patient pathway by applying advanced AI and Machine Learning technologies to patient-specific data, fusing the full range of personal and lifestyle information, genomics, biomarkers, test results and imaging.
