Why We Focus on Rare Diseases

There are over 8,000 rare diseases affecting an estimated 350 million people worldwide, yet only around 200 of these conditions have an effective treatment. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of developing new drugs, rare diseases are often less attractive to pharmaceutical companies interested in larger patient populations. However, our cutting edge technology combining machine learning and expert analysis cuts drug development costs significantly and increases the chances of success.

Why We Focus on Rare Diseases

How We Work: Three Simple Steps

1. We work closely with patient groups and charities to ensure we understand a particular disease and patient needs as best as possible.

2. We perform a feasibility study to determine if sufficient data and background information exist to allow effective drug matching.

3. In case the previous criteria are met we initiate a repurposing project and predict compounds likely to work in the disease, while providing expert interpretation and assistance with further development of the candidates.

Our Technology

We combine computational biology and machine learning to perform drug matching for rare diseases. We integrate many types of data, including using natural language processing to scan millions of scientific publications. Our methods include ‘guilt by association’ algorithms and network analysis to uncover hidden connections in huge amounts of biological data.

For many diseases we make extensive use of transcriptomic data to measure the activity of particular genes in a disease state and predict how a drug could alter the system.
