South Korean researchers use AI to predict side effects of immunotherapy
Researchers from various South Korean universities have teamed up to develop an AI model to predict the side effects of immunotherapy in cancer patients.
The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and Asan Medical Center first compiled a comprehensive list of risk factors for side effects of immuno-oncology drugs based on patients’ genomes, transcriptomes and blood indicators. This was extracted from a large prospective cohort of solid cancer patients in collaboration with nine South Korean medical institutions.
From this, a deep learning prediction model was developed that determines whether a patient will show side effects of an immunotherapy before receiving it.
The research was conducted against the background of a lack of understanding of such side effects, which have been shown to resemble autoimmune diseases and, in the worst cases, can even lead to death.
