Scientists, medical researchers at Case Western Reserve, NYU Langone Health and University Hospitals using machine-learning to predict response to immunotherapy

In the last month, two patents were awarded to inventors from the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD): “Predicting recurrence in early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) using spatial arrangement of clusters of tumor infiltrating lymphocytes and cancer nuclei”, and “Hough transform-based vascular network disorder features on baseline fluorescein angiography scans predict response to anti-VEGF therapy in diabetic macular edema”.

On April 7th, 2021, Anant Madabushi, PhD, gave the talk, "Prognostic and Predictive Radiomics and Pathomics: Implications for Precision Medicine", at the University of Washington’s Pathology Grand Rounds.

 “Predicting response to anti-vascular endothelial growth factor therapy with computer-extracted morphology and spatial arrangement features of leakage patterns on baseline fluorescein angiography in diabetic macular edema” and “Methods and apparatus for predicting benefit from immunotherapy using tumoral and peritumoral radiomic features”

“Probabilistic atlases of post-treatment multi-parametric MRI scans reveal distinct hemispheric distribution of glioblastoma progression versus pseudo-progression”.

The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the election of Anirban Sen Gupta, Ph.D., Full Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Case Western Reserve University to its College of Fellows. 

Promise and Reality of the Brave New World.. His talk titled, “Pathomics for Precision Oncology”, will be held on March 7th, 2021, 8:00am - 8:30am EST. 

After receiving a nomination to The Pathologist’s 2020 Power List, Anant Madabhushi, PhD, will be speaking alongside other nominees during the virtual event on March 2.

Researchers discover biomarkers to identify lung cancer patients who could be made worse by same drugs that helps many others

“Predicting pathological complete response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy from baseline breast dynamic contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI)” and “Predicting response to immunotherapy using computer extracted features relating to spatial arrangement of tumor infiltrating lymphocytes in non-small cell lung cancer”.

For all the promise of AI-created precision medicines, observers say there’s a long way to go before they'll come to a drugstore near you. Anant Madabhushi, a biomedical engineering professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, said, "there is a lot of optimism but also a lot of hype" in the use of AI for precision medicine.
