Bio2Treat – Biometric and biological data for diagnosis and therapy in pain patients

Grünenthal and the University Hospital RWTH Aachen have entered into a research collaboration to develop new treatment approaches for patients with neuropathic pain. The project Bio 2Treat - biometric and biological data for the diagnosis and therapy of pain patients - runs over three years. It is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with a total of € 1.52 million as part of the action field "Health Economy in the Health Research Framework Program" (Grant No. 13GW0334B). The project, coordinated by Prof. Angelika Lampert from the Institute of Physiology at the University Hospital RWTH Aachen together with Grünenthal, involves the professors Roman Rolke (Palliative Medicine), Martin Zenke (Cell Biology), Ingo Kurth (Human Genetics) and Andreas Schuppert (Computational Biomedicine) of the University Hospital RWTH Aachen.

Within the project, patient data from different sources will be collected and merged to enable new therapeutic approaches. This includes subjective patient reported outcomes, and biometrical patients data collected via a smart watch/phone combination, stem cell research, artificial intelligence, innovative methods for pain assessment, and conventional clinical examinations.

All data obtained will be combined in a special software and analysed by self-learning algorithms to allow significant improvement of diagnosis, prognosis and therapy in future.
