Machine learning decreases experimental costs of drug combination screening for translational applications

FIMM researchers have developed an efficient machine learning model that requires only a limited set of dose-response measurements for accurate prediction of drug combination synergy in a given patient sample. The minimal-input web-implementation, named DECREASE, supports cost-effective combinatorial screening in precision medicine projects with decreased experimental costs, translational time and number of patient-derived cells required.
