The MD-Paedigree (Model-Driven European Paediatric Digital Repository) project has concluded receiving a final evaluation of “Good”. Congratulations on a very positive outcome for the team!
Marco Viceconti, Insigneo Executive Director and work-package leader of the MD-Paedigree project, said “I am delighted about the positive conclusion of the MD-Paedigree project, and even more so for the results that Insigneo has achieved, in particular in the Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) arm of the project. We were able to identify subject-specific patterns in the neuromotor control that appear to correlate with the response to treatment and the progression of the cartilage damage. If these results are confirmed in a phase II clinical trial, this could open up change in the clinical pathway for JIA patients, which involves subject-specific modelling”.
MD –Paedigree is a simulation and prediction tool for paediatric clinicians. The project was clinically-driven and strongly VPH-rooted. Seven world-renowned clinical centres of excellence pursued improved interoperability of paediatric biomedical information, data and knowledge by developing together a set of reusable and adaptable multiscale models for more predictive, individualised, effective and safer paediatric healthcare. The project has developed a digital repository storing paediatric clinical data for millions of young patients, enabling physicians to make more informed decisions.
