A systematic analysis of both trials using Ariana’s KEM® (Knowledge Extraction & Management) eXplainable AI platform revealed the impact of higher dose of CY6463 on 5 endpoints related to spatial learning (Milner Maze Test speed and accuracy, p=0.004 and p=0.045), brain activity (electroencephalography: increased alpha power, eyes closed, p = 0.003), inflammation (Matrix Metalloproteinase 3, p = 0.008) and target engagement (cyclic guanosine monophosphate, p=0.019), thus demonstrating the potential of CY6463 for the treatment of multiple neurological diseases.
Ariana’s KEM® also generated new hypotheses of patient-selection biomarkers that were linked with improved response; notably, age greater than 49 years old was linked with greater improvement in Milner Maze Test (speed p=0.095, accuracy p=0.047) and increase in effect size (Cohen’s d) by 41% and 118% respectively, while baseline systolic blood pressure greater than or equal to 121 mmHg was linked with greater improvement in Milner Maze Test (speed p=0.055, accuracy p=0.052) and increase in effect size by 86% and 157% respectively.
This analysis of Phase 1 data in healthy participants demonstrates the ability of eXplainable AI tools, such as KEM®, to integrate and analyze broad and heterogeneous sources of data from different trials, to provide insight into a drug’s mechanism of action, to generate testable hypotheses, and to guide the optimal design of the next steps in clinical development.
“We are very pleased to report initial results from our collaboration with the Cyclerion team that illustrate the power of integrating our xAI driven approach very early in clinical development. Our first evidence of clinical improvement of endpoints relevant in multiple diseases as well as the systematic identification of candidate patient selection criteria will help the design of next-phase studies with higher probability of success” commented Mohammad Afshar, Ariana Pharma CEO.
