The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and GNS Healthcare Announce Collaboration to Identify Potential New Multiple Myeloma Therapies

GNS Healthcare announced a collaboration to speed the discovery of innovative treatments for patients with multiple myeloma. The effort will combine the unprecedented genomic and clinical data from the MMRF's CoMMpass Study with revolutionary GNS machine learning platforms and rapid computer simulations. The work supports the development of computer models of myeloma disease that may uncover novel molecular pathways that can prevent progression of disease and address the unmet treatment needs of patients with multiple myeloma. CoMMpass is a longitudinal study of 1,000 newly diagnosed patients with active multiple myeloma. Its objective is to map each of these patients genomic profiles to clinical outcomes to develop a more complete understanding of patient responses to treatments. GNS will use an in silico process, applying its MAX architecture and patented REFS inference engine and simulation platforms to the CoMMpass data. REFS will identify causal drivers and underlying molecular processes of disease progression. REFS will also discover the most likely targets for therapeutics to treat, and perhaps to predict and prevent, relapses and refractory disease. REFS will also discover predictive diagnostic biomarkers that determine which treatments will work and for which patients. The work promises to support physicians and patients with a broader set of individualized treatment protocols mapped to specific molecular and genomic characteristics. GNS has used REFS successfully to advance the research priorities of numerous nonprofit organizations focused on diseases including Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, childhood asthma, Alzheimer's disease and others. Its work ultimately enables next-generation care management solutions focused on reducing adverse events, slowing disease progression and improving therapeutic effectiveness through precision medicine.

GNS Healthcare Announces Executive Appointments

GNS Healthcare announced the addition of Richard Popiel, MD, MBA and Atul Butte, MD, PhD to its Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Popiel is executive vice president of health care services and chief medical officer at Cambia Health Solutions. Widely regarded as a population health expert, Dr. Popiel previously served Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey as president and chief operating officer and as vice president and chief medical officer.

Dr. Butte is chief and associate professor, division of systems medicine, departments of pediatrics and genetics, Stanford University and the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. The Butte Laboratory builds and applies tools that convert more than 400 trillion points of molecular, clinical, and epidemiological data measured by researchers and clinicians over the past decade into diagnostics, therapeutics, and new insights into disease.
