AETIONOMY is featured in Nature Reviews

Monday 02 February 2015

The AETIONOMY project was recently featured in a short article in Nature Reviews entitled “Towards reforming the taxonomy of human disease”.

The article describes IMI’s 2012 call for proposals to establish mechanism-based taxonomies for both inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases. The respective results were the PRECISEADS and AETIONOMY projects, both of which aim to identify disease mechanisms that can be attributed to distinct subgroups of people.

The author goes on to compare and contrast the strategies followed by the two project teams. In both cases, a successful result will lead to increased confidence in target selection as well as higher success rates in drug development.

This article appeared in volume 14 of Nature Reviews Drug Discovery.
