A partnership between RetinAI Medical and Boehringer Ingelheim aims to improve patient outcomes in geographic atrophy (GA) by combining RetinAI’s Discovery platform and AI tools with Boehringer Ingelheim’s research in retinal diseases.
GA is a progressive, advanced form of age-related macular degeneration and a leading cause of complete loss of sight, estimated to affect around five million people worldwide. The number of people affected by GA increases exponentially with age. As the population ages, the prevalence of the disease is expected to rise.
RetinAI’s AI tools for identifying novel biomarkers will be tested for the analysis of Boehringer Ingelheim’s imaging datasets from clinical studies and real-world evidence to identify additional, novel biomarkers and predictors of disease progression.
This integration of digital technologies and AI could help accelerate the development of urgently needed novel treatments and enable earlier and more precise diagnosis.
“RetinAI is excited to embark on this very important collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim, a leader in the development of innovative, more precise treatments and application of digital technologies in retinal diseases” says Dr Carlos Ciller, CEO of RetinAI.
“Our Discovery platform and novel AI tools in GA accelerate research and provide robust disease insights. We are confident that this collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim can pave the way to novel treatments that are better tailored to a patient’s disease to transform the lives of people living with retinal diseases.”
