Lundoch Diagnostics is developing an AI-based diagnostic tool using follistatin as a biomarker for type 2 diabetes. By imputing patented blood biomarker measurements, the program predicts type 2 diabetes many years before diabetes onset.
Type 2 diabetes is a growing global epidemic, with 6% of the world population suffering from the disease. Early detection of type 2 diabetes risk before symptoms could help minimize health complications related to diabetes.
A large study led by Dr. Yang De Marinis, associate professor at Lund University, has identified a protein in the blood that could predict type 2 diabetes up to nineteen years before the onset of the disease. The study is published in Nature Communications.
To put the results into clinical use, Lundoch Diagnostics is commercializing the tool under patent applications in global markets, hoping to institute measures to prevent type 2 diabetes from becoming established.
