CLEVELAND, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- GenomOncology, LLC (GO) announced today that it was selected by the Indiana University School of Medicine to utilize GO's proprietary match algorithm and GO's extensive Knowledge Management System (KMS) application programming interface (API) suite to provide real-time clinical trial recommendations to clinical researchers for the benefit of IU patients.
GenomOncology's informatics-based service will help IU's clinical research teams discover and evaluate potential clinical trials. GO was chosen after a rigorous technical review and trial matching evaluation with test data.
The GO KMS API suite enables precision health approaches by allowing researchers to aggregate and analyze biomarker-based data within a 'genomics-aware' framework that includes a diverse set of annotations including genes, pathways, drugs, alterations, transcripts, and diseases. GO's KMS clinical trial database contains over 2,900 clinical trials curated by the My Cancer Genome team for comprehensive clinical reporting. The Indiana University School of Medicine is leveraging GO's clinical trial APIs in order to empower researchers to use a patient's clinical and genomic data to find genomically-relevant clinical trials.
"GenomOncology is excited to be working with IU's Precision Health initiative to further IU's goal of increasing cancer clinical trial participation," said Manuel Glynias, CEO of GenomOncology. "We also share their longer term aspirations: to find new treatments for cancer that lead to cures."
The partnership between GO and IU is a part of Indiana University's Grand Challenge Precision Health Initiative (IUPHI) which is conducting clinical trials in triple negative breast cancer, multiple myeloma and pediatric sarcomas.
The IU Precision Health Initiative was born out of IU's Grand Challenges Program to discover and develop cures for multiple myeloma, triple negative breast cancer and pediatric sarcoma, and to delay progression and ultimately prevent Type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's disease.
