Case Study: Improving Patient Care for a Major Life Sciences R&D Organization
Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic neurological disease for which there is no cure. MS is estimated to affect approximately 400,000 people in the US , and 2.1 million worldwide. MS is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, infectious and autoimmune factors.
Knowledgent implemented advanced analytics to comb through a series of over 2,000 genetic and environmental factors that might lead to multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms. The analytics helped the researchers fine tune their aim and match the speed of analysis with the rate of data coming into their systems with a goal to demystify why the disease progresses more rapidly in some patients and get those insights back to other researchers, so they can find new treatments.
