4baseCare and ACTREC-Tata Memorial Centre join hands for development of AI based clinical interpretation platform

4baseCare and ACTREC-Tata Memorial Centre join hands for development of AI based clinical interpretation platform

This AI driven tool will support oncologist in clinical decision making and to offer precision medicine to cancer patients.

4baseCare, an Illumina Accelerator backed Precision Oncology start-up and ACTREC (Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer) – Tata Memorial Centre have signed a collaboration agreement for an AI driven clinical interpretation platform, ClinOme. The collaboration aims at making an indigenous platform to generate data insights and simplified reports to guide oncologists with personalised treatment options for treating cancer patients.

ClinOme is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) based automated tool developed by senior scientists & clinicians from ACTREC & Tata Memorial Hospital by Dr. Amit Dutt, Dr. Pratik Chandrani and Dr. Kumar Prabhash for analysis of raw NGS data followed by comprehensive clinical report generation. It automates quality check, primary, secondary and tertiary analysis of raw NGS data followed by report generation that can be easily comprehended by the clinicians. It provides easy to interpret categorization of genomic alterations along with approved and experimental therapeutic options for each responsive and resistant genotype-drug combination.

Dr. Amit Dutt, Principal Investigator, Scientist, ACTREC -Tata Memorial Hospital, says, “Patient-to-patient variation in treatment response as observed routinely in clinics, suggests that personal targeting of cancer, based on tumour molecular profiles, is necessary. The ClinOme tool and our collaborative work with 4baseCare is likely to benefit large numbers of oncologists in a democratic manner who could take advantage of artificial intelligence-based automation of NGS data analysis to decide an appropriate therapeutic regimen tailored to the patient’s genomic alterations. This is a huge step forward to scale the digital curation towards precision medicine.”

4baseCare having an exclusive worldwide license to ClinOme, plans to invest significant time and resources to further develop and enhance the functionality and precision of ClinOme.

“We are very happy to associate with ACTREC_TMC to introduce ClinOme. The objective of this collaboration is to improve the treatment process and enhancing patients’ quality of life. This partnership is a first step towards developing an advanced ecosystem where researchers & clinicians practice together leading to the development of a solution which has immediate translational benefits for the patients,” says Kshitij Rishi, COO 4baseCare.

“We at 4baseCare are excited to build upon the remarkable research-based product developed by ACTREC-TMC as a robust AI driven platform to support the oncologist(s) in their clinical decision making,” says Hitesh Goswami CEO, 4baseCare.

This collaboration will set a great precedence for Industry-academia collaboration towards translational research. It will also be a huge step towards personalisation of treatment for Indian cancer patients and aligns with the vision of both ACTREC-TMC and 4baseCare of improving quality of life and treatment of cancer patients of the country.

“Genomic testing has become important in the management of cancer. NGS is emerging as a comprehensive solution for genomic testing. It a complex process where the bioinformatics pipeline is a very important component. ClinOme provides a very useful indigenous solution in this area,” says Dr. Kumar Prabhash, Professor and Medical Oncologist, Tata Memorial Hospital.

The output of ClinOme analysis consists of a report with detailed patient centric genotype to help design informed therapeutic option. The output report also consists of links to the specific ongoing clinical trials, gene wise coverage statistics and allelic frequency of the genomic variants.

“While genomics data analysis is a challenge, evidence based therapeutic inference is altogether another challenge. ClinOme addresses both of the challenges using a combination of genomics best practices and artificial-intelligence powered evidence based therapeutic inference,” says Dr. Pratik Chanarani is Scientific Officer, ACTREC-Tata Memorial Hospital.

About 4baseCare

4baseCare is the 1st company from Asia Pacific to be backed by Global genomics leader Illumina through their Illumina Accelerator Program. It develops affordable and accessible precision oncology solutions using Genomics and Digital Health technology to personalise patient care in Oncology.

4baseCare has developed custom gene panels that allow oncologists to characterise and understand the molecular signature of individuals’ cancer patient’s tumour tissue. Based on 4baseCare’s reports, the oncologists can then tailor and personalise treatment for their patients.  4baseCare has undertaken one of the largest cohort study of cancer patients to develop first of its kind Indian population specific gene panel in collaboration with clinical partners from AIIMS, ACTREC-TMC, St John’s Research Institute (SJRI) and Fortis (Bangalore).

Gardner Capital Breaks Ground on Brand-New Senior Community in Hurst

Supporting the growing need for senior housing in the densely populated Dallas-Ft. Worth metro, Gardner Capital has broken ground on Gala at Central Park in Hurst. A family-owned private equity firm specializing in multifamily housing and renewable energy development and investment, Gardner Capital aims to complete construction in early 2022.

Treymore Construction will serve as general contractor for the project, to be located at 309 W. Pipeline Rd. in Hurst. Hurst Public Facility Corporation is the development partner for Gala at Central Park, while NDC Corporate and Redstone are the financial partners for the transaction.

“A couple years ago the City of Hurst realized that we need to address a growing problem in our city, said Henry Wilson,” Mayor of City of Hurst.  “That problem was sufficient workforce and senior housing.  We were so fortunate to develop a community revitalization relationship with Gardner Capital. We now have new communities open or under development to further address the city’s growing affordable housing needs.  Working with Gardner Capital and their investment team at NDC, we have established a true public-private partnership.  Their projects are first class and more than meet the needs for the city and our citizens.  It has been a pleasure working with them, truly a partnership relationship, and much more than a traditional city and developer relationship.”

NDC Acquisition Manager, John Zaluski added “NDC is so excited to be a part of the Gala at Central Park project.  This project fits our mission to provide equity capital for the construction of affordable housing for low-income individuals across the country.”  Since its inception, NDC’s affordable housing group has raised over $1 billion of equity, which has resulted in over 15,000 units of housing created.

The 94-unit senior complex, with a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments, will include a three-story residential building and a two-story clubhouse with a variety of resident amenities.

“As the need and demand for affordable senior housing continues to grow, we are thrilled to break ground and make a genuine difference in the market.  We are excited to continue to grow our long term commitment to investing in the City of Hurst as well as build upon our long term partnership with the City – a partnership that has and will continue to be a very important one, not only to our Company, but for me personally,” said Michael Gardner, President and CEO of Gardner Capital. Gala at Central Park is one of multiple transactions currently in development for Gardner Capital specific to the DFW Region, consisting of over 1,000 units to be completed in the next few years.
