Precision Medicine

Researchers have used AI and 3D modeling to identify more than 100 heretofore undiscovered protein complexes and classify more than 700 that were known but until now remained obscure.

Researchers have used deep learning to predict success, failure or complications in transplanted kidneys by analyzing pathology slides at scale.

Industry researchers challenged a machine learning model to predict failure to heal at four, eight and 12 weeks after initial treatment.

The model’s developers suggest algorithmic prognoses could be aggregated to guide overdose prevention at the local, county and regional levels.

New research shows horizontal gene transfer is predictable in bacteria by machine learning, a development that could lead to better weapons in the war against E. coli and other bacterial assailants that collaborate to conquer pharmacologic first responders.  

Could AI help produce a unifying concept of human disease—one that might help prevent, mitigate or cure everything from birth defects and rare cancers to immune disorders and neurological defects?

Only two-thirds of U.S. healthcare consumers are OK with surgeons using digital facial recognition to avoid medical error by confirming patient identity.

FDA could do more to police regulated products for algorithmic biases that may affect clinical outcomes in vulnerable subpopulations.

Cambridge University researchers propose using the technique to predict individuals’ health issues over time and intervene early with personalized preventive care.

AI and machine learning are adept at selecting good candidates for total joint arthroplasty and predicting which patients will and won’t experience post-op complications.

Mayo Clinic researchers have demonstrated an AI-based system for untangling the meandering routes taken by electric stimulation pulses delivered to a single region of the brain.

Researchers in the U.S. and China have meshed AI with blood testing and CT lung imaging to accurately predict which newly diagnosed COVID-19 patients will need a mechanical ventilator.

Early valve replacement was associated with improved outcomes in a new study published in Circulation.

The Department of Defense is gifting Case Western researchers a grant to study the use of AI in determining whether patients require surgery. 

Research publications by radiologists increased by 167% during the second year of the mentorship program, doctors at West Virginia University reported.
