4. Precision output
The model helps us truly understand the processes taking place in cancer and lets us verify various hypotheses regarding both existing and potential therapies. First, we are able to identify patients who will respond to known therapies, boosting the effective efficacy of the drugs which are already in use or are entering clinical trials. Second, we can observe cohorts of patients who would benefit from different therapies than those they were originally assigned to, finding other indications for existing drugs and facilitating drug repurposing. Finally, the model shows us cohorts of patients for whom there are no right therapies available, allowing us to pursue and validate new drug target candidates.
New drug targets
- first program preclinically validated
- already in clinics
