Backed by 2 clusters and 45 innovative companies, the project will gear the French precision medicine industry toward new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches
— Philippe Genne, CEO of Oncodesign and VP of the Medicen SME body
PARIS, FRANCE, September 18, 2018 /
/ — Medicen Paris Region and Cap Digital, two competitiveness clusters from the Greater Paris region, today announce that they are rallying their members to support the Hu-PreciMED project (Human Precision MEDicine) in order to structure the precision medicine industry in France. The project was jointly launched by Oncodesign, Servier and Intersystems. With more than 45 innovative digital and medical companies already participating, Hu-PreciMED aims to bring together all public and private players working in the field of precision medicine and connect them efficiently to medical data from patients. This is important in order to improve available therapeutic and diagnostic tools, as well as to develop new predictive and preventive medical approaches; all the while building on the latest progress in Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.
Precision medicine relies on the analysis of molecular and genetic characteristics to allow individualized or personalized treatment and monitoring of patients. It is a booming global market, expected to reach $96 billion by 2024 . This area of research is seen as key for the pharmaceutical industry to develop new therapeutic solutions and for patient care. Other criteria for organizations involved in this flourishing market include anticipating scientific, technological, regulatory, economic, ethical and digital developments. The precision medicine industry also requires support for patient data generation and easy access to this data.
The project consists of three main areas, each led by one of the three coordinators. Intersystems will focus on “target resolution”, using patient data to identify subgroups in order to adapt treatments or discover new therapeutic targets. Servier will take care of “investigating new molecules”, new therapeutic targets making it possible to identify biomarkers and to create and produce new compounds. Oncodesign will lead the third area with preclinical and clinical development of new drugs associated with biomarkers. To accomplish this project, two digital platforms will be set up, one for the integration of multi-source data and the other for data analysis.
The 45 public and private organizations already working on the project include the Paris Hospitals (AP-HP), the Transimmunom and Inflamex Laboratories of Excellence (LabEx), the Lille University Hospital and the Frédéric-Joliot Institute for Life Sciences – CEA.
While all therapeutic areas will be addressed, the pilot phase will focus on immuno-inflammatory diseases, which affect 5-7 per cent of the Western population and for which cohorts of referenced patients already exist or can be generated. The goal will be to identify the most relevant targets and to provide guidance for new drug development.
The project has a total of four phases and will run until 2023. The first phase runs until January 2019 and will focus on the design and development of the project. Between 2019 and 2020, the coordinators plan to develop and organize the industrial sector, before moving to a consolidation phase between 2020 and 2023, with more emphasis on business development. The final phase will run in 2022 and 2023, aimed at widening the range of addressed pathologies as well as geographical reach through international partnerships. The project was initially funded by the three industrial coordinators. Plans for further funding will aim primarily at the European level.
“The Hu-PreciMED project has taken shape thanks to the Medicen and Cap Digital clusters, which are deeply rooted in the French technology ecosystem, and have served as neutral and trustworthy third parties. They will continue to have a pivotal role in coordinating the collaborations and giving the project members access to their networks and their work methodology,” said Philippe Genne, CEO of Oncodesign and vice president of the Medicen SME body, speaking on behalf of the three companies driving the project. “The call for interest was initiated last July, following the preview of the “Health Data Hub” project launched by French Health Minister Agnès Buzyn in June 2018. It showed that French organizations from this sector are very interested in this approach. By joining forces, we will be able to reach a critical mass and rely on French scientific excellence to shine internationally.”
