The University of Utah and RenalytixAI Partner to Drive Innovation in Kidney Health

Innovative partnership to enable health system-wide approach to help delay or prevent progression in the earliest stages while advancing genetics research for detection, prognosis and treatment of chronic kidney disease

NEW YORK and SALT LAKE CITY, February 24, 2021 - Renalytix AI plc (LSE: RENX) (NASDAQ: RNLX), an artificial intelligence-enabled in vitro diagnostics company, and the University of Utah , one of the top research institutions in the United States, announces a partnership to improve kidney health and reduce the risk of kidney failure for large scale populations in the earliest stages of kidney disease.

The partnership intends to implement RenalytixAI's in vitro diagnostic platform, KidneyIntelX , in combination with a range of advanced clinical management solutions to optimize patient care and drive towards improved outcomes system-wide at University of Utah Health , which serves millions of patients in six states. KidneyIntelX is designed for the identification of adults with early-stage chronic kidney disease and diabetes who are at risk for progressive kidney function decline or kidney failure.

Core to this partnership is the implementation of care navigation and pharmacy programs, behavioral and health economic assessments, together with data-driven analytics. KidneyIntelX will be deployed directly into the electronic health records (EHR) system at University of Utah Health, enabling access to more than 1,700 clinicians for seamless test ordering and patient risk score reporting as part of the standard clinical workflow.

The RenalytixAI and University of Utah partnership was facilitated by the University's designated office for industry relations, The Partners for Innovation, Ventures, Outreach & Technology (PIVOT) Center.

John Inadomi, Chair of the Department of Internal Medicine, University of Utah School of Medicine, said: "Working with RenalytixAI to improve kidney disease management yields the University of Utah new avenues to innovate approaches to translational research, health informatics, and clinical care. This partnership is exciting because it is so forward looking. It also demonstrates the value of having a resource like the PIVOT Center which is able to drive complicated relations for our exceptional health enterprise."

Keith Marmer, Chief Innovation and Economic Engagement Officer, University of Utah, said: "RenalytixAI is a unique and ideal partner to engage in a multi-dimensional collaboration like this, in real-time and at scale. The University of Utah's PIVOT Center is focused on catalyzing the innovation ecosystem in Utah by integrating technology commercialization, economic development and corporate engagement, and this partnership with RenalytixAI serves as a terrific example of how we've come together to do just that."

James McCullough, Chief Executive Officer, RenalytixAI, said: "University of Utah's clinical and translational expertise presents an ideal opportunity to interrupt the devastating and costly effects of progressive chronic kidney disease from its earliest stages to help prevent irreversible late-stage kidney disease and dialysis. This partnership is enabling RenalytixAI to address a major health problem, help build the life sciences sector in Utah and show the economic value of such a robust public private collaboration. We look forward to being able to announce additional innovative partnerships of this type in the near future."

Integral to the partnership, RenalytixAI and the University of Utah are supporting continued research and development in: 1) understanding kidney disease progression and improving clinical management in underserved minority communities; 2) novel care delivery and treatment models in early-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) across all populations; and 3) identifying genetic biomarkers for incorporation into KidneyIntelX and other machine learning-driven algorithms to enhance diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring of patients in the earliest disease stages. RenalytixAI will be providing financial support to the University of Utah over a five-year period in the form of sponsored research, software and education program development, and third-party resources in each of these critical areas.

Katelin Roberts, Interim Director of BioHive , a thriving collective of more than 1,100 companies representing the life science and healthcare innovation ecosystem of Utah's economy , said: "The growing partnership between RenalytixAI and the University of Utah is an ideal example of the great innovation possible within Utah's rich life sciences ecosystem," "The entrepreneurial, can-do spirit of the partners, coupled with unique technology and research capacities, will potentially enable new advances in patient care and disease management throughout the state."

This partnership follows RenalytixAI's establishment of a new commercial laboratory in the University of Utah's Research Park in 2020 and demonstrates the continued growth of RenalytixAI's operations for the western United States. RenalytixAI intends to rapidly expand employees and infrastructure in the state and accelerate the availability of advanced precision medicine diagnostics for Utah diabetes and kidney disease patients.

The person responsible for this announcement is James McCullough, CEO.

About Kidney Disease

Kidney disease is now recognized as a public health epidemic affecting over 850 million people globally. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 15% of US adults, or 37 million people, currently have chronic kidney disease (CKD). Further, the CDC reports that 9 out of 10 adults with CKD do not know they have it and 1 out of 2 people with very low kidney function who are not on dialysis do not know they have CKD*. Kidney disease is referred to as a "silent killer" because it often has no symptoms and can go undetected until a very advanced stage. Each year, kidney disease kills more people than breast and prostate cancer. Every day, 13 patients in the United States die while waiting for a kidney transplant.
