PathAI launches AISight digital pathology platform and NSCLC algorithm 

PathAI has launched a new digital pathology platform, AISight. Supporting AI-driven research, the digital pathology platform was trained on a real-world dataset of over 5,000 samples with inputs from more than 350,000 cell and tissue-level annotations from more than 50 pathologists. The company has also released its AIM-PD-L1 NSCLC RUO algorithm, which calculates the percentage of PD-L1 positive tumor and immune cells in NSCLC samples. The AIM-PD-L1 NSCLC RUO algorithm calculates the percentage of PD-L1 positive tumor and immune cells in NSCLC samples over the entire slide image (WSI).

Validating the AIM-PD-L1 NSCLC algorithm

PathAI previously shared validation data for the AIM-PD-L1 NSCLC algorithm at the AACR Annual Meeting in 2022. The AISight Early Access Network laboratories will build on this work by testing the algorithm’s performance on real-world data. Other IHC quantitation algorithms for various types of cancer are also available to these labs. PathAI…

The rapid pace of development of COVID-19 vaccines and antibodies has redefined expectations for clinical trials. As SARS-CoV-2 variants such as Delta continue to fuel the epidemic, the industry must continue to ensure testing and clinical trials stay ahead of mutations.

To get a clearer sense of what the ramifications of this accelerated development will be for the industry at large, we spoke with Neta Bendelac, senior director of strategy at 4G Clinical, which offers software and services for clinical drug trials.

Drug Discovery & Development: What impact has the pandemic had on trials for COVID-19 therapies?

Neta Bendelac: Speed was the most important factor for the early COVID-19 studies as many sponsors raced to get promising therapies and potential vaccines into the clinic. We all felt the urgency, all day, every day. It made sense for the FDA to sti…
