Data from Brainomix’s Collaboration with AstraZeneca Shows its AI-Powered e-Lung Better Identifies Lung Fibrosis Patients at Risk of Decline

What To Know

  • “In this analysis of AstraZeneca's IPF clinical trial, we have shown that from a single baseline CT scan, WRVS is able to identify patients at risk of decline in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) over the next 52 weeks, outperforming standard measures.
  • Brainomix, the AI-powered medtech company, announces the publication of a new study in the prestigious peer-reviewed journal American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine (AJRCCM)1, resulting from a research collaboration AstraZeneca, the UK's leading Biopharmaceutical company.

Brainomix, the AI-powered medtech company, announces the publication of a new study in the prestigious peer-reviewed journal American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine (AJRCCM)1, resulting from a research collaboration AstraZeneca, the UK’s leading Biopharmaceutical company.

The results showed that Brainomix e-Lung, an AI-enabled automated CT processing software, stratifies patients at risk of IPF progression, outperforming standard measures, and demonstrating e-Lung’s potential role in improving efficiency of of future clinical trials.

The study was an analysis of AstraZeneca’s Phase 2 52-Week clinical trial of tralokinumab in patients with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). The patient data from the trial was processed with Brainomix’s e-Lung tool. The tool is uniquely powered by the weighted reticulovascular score (WRVS), a novel biomarker that incorporates reticular opacities and vascular structures of the lung.

Dr Peter George, lead author on the publication, Senior Medical Director at Brainomix, and Clinical Lead for ILD at Royal Brompton Hospital in London, said:

“In this analysis of AstraZeneca’s IPF clinical trial, we have shown that from a single baseline CT scan, WRVS is able to identify patients at risk of decline in Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) over the next 52 weeks, outperforming standard measures. These data suggest that the e-Lung WRVS tool may allow for enrichment of clinical trials with progressive patients, could identify patients at low risk of IPF progression, might facilitate well-matched treatment arms and could reduce the size of future clinical trials.

Dr Kristoffer Ostridge, Head of Experimental Medicine at AstraZeneca, commented on the value of the partnership with Brainomix:

“As key components in AstraZeneca’s strategy to bring new medicines to patients faster and more effectively, data science and AI are transforming R&D. Our collaboration with Brainomix helped us to expand our understanding of the potential that innovative AI approaches can bring to improving the design of clinical trial for patients with Interstitial Lung Disease.”

Previously Published Data

This study comes on the back of previously published data that was presented last year at the American Thoracic Society (ATS) meeting in Washington, D.C., which showed that WRVS was more strongly associated with transplant free survival of IPF patients than FVC alone. WRVS was also able to predict both short- and long-term outcomes of the patients, including lung function decline and survival.

The collaboration with AstraZeneca was driven by Brainomix’s Life Sciences division. Leveraging its extensive AI-imaging expertise, proprietary biomarkers, core lab analytics, and bespoke digital biomarkers, the company have been successfully forging a wide array of partnerships with the likes of Boehringer Ingelheim, Stryker, Bridge Biotherapeutics, Argenica and Lumosa.

The study is designed to assess the clinical utility and workflow benefits of Swoop® system images acquired at infusion centers and clinics to help physicians detect amyloid-related imaging abnormalities (ARIA) in Alzheimer’s patients receiving amyloid-targeting therapy at the times specified in the labeling (before the fifth, seventh, and fourteenth infusions).
Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”
