Pancreatic Cancer Research Exemplifies Increasing Use of Genomic Data for Precision Medicine
Genomic data is increasingly being collected during clinical trials and is a critical enabler for more targeted therapies and groundbreaking discoveries. In fact, data from a third-party study1 highlighted clinical trials with molecular biomarkers have a higher success rate (25.9%) versus trials without biomarkers (8.4%). However, traditional workflows often lack a secure technology platform that can incorporate genomic data with other clinical data types to return insights around safety and efficacy in real time. Medidata Rave Omics with Biomarker Discovery provides a suite of solutions that seamlessly integrates clinical trial and genomic data, checks data quality and performs exploratory data analyses related to biomarker discovery using machine learning and advanced analytics - all within the Medidata Clinical Cloud.
“This project addresses MSK’s need to enhance the integration of large
sets of genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic data, with the extensive
demographic, clinical and pathologic data we are collecting as part of
our clinical research trials for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma,” said
Through the use of Rave Omics, MSK researchers are able to centralize the disparate sources of data commonly found in a cancer trial. By integrating the clinical, genomic and proteomic data of a trial in a single platform, researchers are able to quickly identify genomic-driven insights through comprehensive, automated statistical methods and machine learning. With the use of Rave Omics, MSK aims to streamline processes and expedite their research in pancreatic cancer.
“We’re excited to continue our long-term collaboration with MSK and help
world-class researchers discover new pancreatic cancer treatments,” said
