IIT-Madras researchers have created a tool based on artificial intelligence called “PIVOT” that can identify a person’s risk of developing cancer. PIVOT, according to IIT-Madras, is made to identify the genes that are likely to result in cancer. The technology will aid in developing individualised cancer treatment plans. IIT-Madras announced this in Chennai on Wednesday (July 6).
The technology will aid in developing individualised cancer treatment plans, the institution said. According to a news release, PIVOT is intended to identify the genes that are likely to cause cancer.
The prediction is based on a model that makes use of data on mutations, gene expression, copy number variation in genes, and disturbances in the biological network brought on by changing gene expression, it was said.
A peer-reviewed publication called Frontier in Genetics has published the study’s findings.
Raghunathan Rengaswamy, IIT-Madras Dean (Global Engagement) and Professor of Chemical Engineering, Karthik Raman, IIT-Madras Associate Professor of Bhupat and Jyoti Mehta School of Biosciences and Core Member of Robert Bosch Centre for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (RBCDSAI), and Malvika Sudhakar, IIT-Madras Research Scholar, led the study.
Because cancer is a complicated illness, there is no one cure that works for everyone. Such models that focus on identifying patient differences might be highly helpful as cancer therapy progressively moves toward personalised medicine, according to a statement from Dr. Karthik Raman, Core Member, RBCDSAI, IIT-Madras.
Cancer is a primary cause of mortality globally, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
