Results from transcriptomic (RNA Gene Expression) data now published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology:

• Prurigo Nodularis (PN) is a rare, potentially debilitating, chronic neuroimmune skin disease characterized by disfiguring skin nodules covering extensive areas of the body that cause intense itch.

• Nemolizumab is a first-in-class investigational monoclonal antibody that has been shown to block the signaling of IL-31, which plays a key role in the pathogenesis of PN.

• The gene expression data published today provides valuable insight into the mechanism of action of nemolizumab and its positive role in addressing patients with moderate to severe PN.

• The results demonstrate that nemolizumab effectively decreases IL-31 responses in PN skin, leading to suppression of downstream inflammatory responses and improvement in lesions, pruritus and nerve function.

• These data complement previously-published ... Read more »

LONDON-Thursday 2 December 2021 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Arthur D. Little (ADL) has launched a new report which examines how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to its full potential in the context of business decision making. The report – ‘From Insight to Impact’ looks at how companies can use AI more holistically rather than to just perform discrete functions and includes real world use cases where AI has demonstrated its ability to powerfully augment and improve business processes.

In a survey conducted for the report, only 16% of respondents believed that their organizations were benefitting from the full potential of AI technology. For the great majority, AI applications remain stuck at the pilot stage or are limited to just specific applications such as online customer interaction. The survey also showed that concerns still exist around the more widespread use of AI, with loss of control, lack of transparency, and the perceived th ... Read more »
