Scientists decided to use artificial intelligence to build a drug regime, which turned out to be successful. They made this for children with a deadly kind of brain cancer without improving survival rates for more than a century.
In the journal, Cancer Discovery experts say that they can use AI to invent and produce new strategies for curing all types of cancer in the new era of technology.
Chief executive of The Institute of Cancer Research, Professor Kristian Helin, said that experts could use AI, which promises a transformative impact on discovering drugs for treating rare diseases. This is the institute where a group of data analysts, doctors and scientists, made this discovery.
He talked about the discovery of a drug combination that can be helpful for some children with deadly brain cancer. It is a result of using AI for identifying such combinations.
These experts think that this discovery might become one of the first patterns of a treatment introduced by AI.
Cancer specialists working with Computer scientists at the ICR and the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust used AI to create this combination.
They mixed two drugs, everolimus and vandetanib. They concluded that they could treat fast-growing and a rare kind of brain tumor (also called DIPG) in children. All types of tumors are currently complicated to make a surgery for children because they are weak for operations.
But after exploring existing drugs, the group of experts found that everolimus could sneak through the blood and heal cancer. This combination turned out to be successful in mice, and now experts started to test in children. Specialists now wish to try it on more children in major clinics. The study found that blending these two drugs increased survival rates in mice by 15%.
