They combine results from molecular profiling (omics) technologies together with the findings from conventional toxicology. For this purpose, the InnoMed PredTox consortium members have been compiling a comprehensive set of pre-clinical toxicology data, studying two reference compounds and 14 proprietary compounds that had previously failed in clinical development for toxicity reasons.

At the 47th annual meeting of the Society of Toxicology earlier this year, InnoMed PredTox presented joint analyses of the compiled transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics profiling data with conventional toxicological endpoints in blood, urine, liver and kidney samples from rats. The results nicely demonstrate the merits of the systematic, integrated approach adopted by the consortium, and pave the way towards new biomarkers, a better mechanistic understanding of individual toxicological responses, and subsequently to more efficient development processes.

Genedata has provided the computational infrastructure for InnoMed PredTox, in particular the software for data management and analysis. Developed as a customization of the Genedata Expressionist® database, the PredTox database currently hosts about 1.3 TB of data and represents the central access point for the consortium members. Data analysis services based on the Genedata Expressionist product suite facilitate the comparison of data between sites and accross compounds, which proves to be essential for biological interpretation by the InnoMed PredTox toxicology experts.

“I am very happy about the success of the InnoMed PredTox project, as it validates Genedata's philosophy of supporting the integrated analysis of large sets of different omics technologies and clinical data. With our Genedata Expressionist platform, we provide a scalable system for efficient biomarker discovery,” said Dr. Othmar Pfannes, CEO of Genedata.
