Beyond Cancer: Precision Medicine Needed to Take on Autoimmune Disease

Beyond Cancer: Precision Medicine Needed to Take on Autoimmune Disease

Judy Jetson reimagines diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune disease.

Precision medicine is emerging in cancer therapy: biomarkers are enabling stratification of patients for better study designs and clinicians are matching treatment to disease and patient to improve outcomes. Increasing ability to mine data (genomic, metabolomic, etc.) to develop targeted therapies and improved diagnostics is making possible the use of precision medicine against other disease states. The knowledge from using data and digital tools to personalize cancer treatment can and should be applied to the growing needs of the autoimmune community. With more than 50M Americans suffering from 90+ different autoimmune diseases, this is a large and growing market. NIH estimates that $100 billion is spent annually (compared to $57 billion in cancer), but treating symptoms, rather than curing diseases. This talk explores how we can begin to use big data and digital tools to ignite precision medicine in autoimmune disease for Judy Jetson.

Imagine a future where using data and digital tools can give us personalized medicine: where each of us gets the right treatment at the right time. My name is Bonnie Feldman, also known as @DrBonnie360 and I am delighted to be here today. I bring to our talk today multiple perspectives – first as a dentist and then Wall Street analyst on all sides of the investor equation, and now as a business development consultant and digital health analyst. As an independent digital health analyst, I have recently interviewed more than 150 companies, each time wondering how new digital tools could help
 
each of us.
 
 
 
Remember the Jetsons? Like today, the 60s were a time of innovation in science and society. My family could be the Jetsons of today, if we added a few more people and had them all wear doctor coats. But being a family of physicians does not change the fact, that like many of you, my family and I have seen healthcare from both sides of the examining table. Poor Judy Jetson has just been diagnosed with Crohn’s and Celiac disease. She shows up at the doctor’s office and gets today’s best treatment. Unfortunately, the current norm for autoimmune treatment is trial and error to find the best drug – this can be time-consuming and ineffective. So, putting on our patient hats for a moment, I want us all to imagine a world where Judy Jetson could get her optimal treatment first, instead of today’s practice: trial and error, using the cheapest drug first…..
