ABSTRACT

Using the power of the world’s largest proteomic platform coupled with machine learning , clinical samples and known biopsy results were used to build proteomic models capable of staging steatosis, inflammation, ballooning and fibrosis, and diagnosing at-risk NASH. These models exhibit competitive performance vs. existing standard methods. Use-cases in drug development include a participant rule-out prior to biopsy and precision demonstration of pharmacodynamic mechanistic impacts on individual liver components with multiple longitudinal measurements. Combination of the liquid liver biopsy with other proteomic tests on the same platform can expand the assessment of drug impact to include changes in cardiovascular risk, insulin resistance, kidney function and body composition. This will result in smaller, faster and more comprehensive clinical trials in the future.

Highlights:

  • Proteomic models capable of staging and diagnosing conditions for “at-risk” NASH
  • Assessment of pharmacodynamic mechanisms over time
  • Simultaneous drug impact assessment of multiple biological metrics

Optimizing platforms for surgical specimen collection and deep human phenotyping was used to enhance protein biomarker identification using proteomic tools. A series of studies using human eye fluids has helped to diagnose inflammatory retinal disease, select personalized therapies, stage cancer, and point to new therapeutic strategies. These approaches can be broadly applied to human surgical disease.
