Software System with Applications in Clinical Prognosis, Personalized Medicine and Clinical Research

Posted Jul 22 2010 5:00pm

Description of Invention:
Available for licensing is software that can provide prognostic information for different diseases and in particular for cancer. The software can determine whether a particular genotype has a significant association with survival time for an individual receiving treatment. For example, it can determine if a specific genetic pattern is associated with an increased or decreased time to recurrence of a particular type of cancer for patients on a given treatment regimen.

Applications:
  • Applications in clinical research:
    • Studying relationship between genotypes and survival times
    • Evaluation of treatment regimens
  • Applications in drug discovery programs
  • Clinical prognosis
  • Personalized medicine


Development Status:
  • The invention has been fully developed.
  • The software will be readily available in executable form if so requested.
