Prediction of Amyloid PET Positivity from Blood-Based Biomarkers, Proteomics, and Clinical Data Discovered through Aitia’s Digital Twins to be Presented at CTAD 2023

Somerville, MA, October 19, 2023: Aitia, the leader in the application of Causal AI and Digital Twins to discover and develop new drugs, announced today that data from its Alzheimer’s Disease Digital Twins will be presented at the upcoming Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease (CTAD), being held from October 24-27, 2023 in Boston. Aitia’s Digital Twins are computational representations of disease that capture genetic and molecular interactions that causally drive clinical and physiological outcomes.

The presentation will focus on results from Alzheimer’s Digital Twins derived from the GAP Bio-Hermes study, the largest AD trial of its kind evaluating biomarkers, surrogate markers, and cognitive tests and prioritizing diversity in the study protocol. Specifically, Aitia Gemini Digital Twins have yielded new levels of predictive accuracy of PET positivity across different ethnoracial groups as well as various disease stages. These models may result in a cost-effective and convenient approach to address the high screen failure rate in clinical trial recruitment that currently plagues Alzheimer’s clinical trials. This challenge is more severe across historically underrepresented ethnic and racial minorities, notably individuals of African descent. This method aims to be accessible to a broader at-risk population while also examining the role of various data sources in predicting PET positivity.

Details of the abstract and poster presentation are as follow:
Poster # LP053
Abstract # 00362
Theme: Clinical Trials: Biomarkers including plasma
Presentation Title: Prediction of Amyloid PET positivity from blood-based biomarkers and clinical data using AI-based Digital Twins
