Aug 11, 2022

Highlights of the Case Study: 

Particulars Description 
Client A leading pharma company in South America was struggling with the increasing cost of biologics development. 
Business Challenge Our client wanted to analyze diverse data types for drug discovery, originating from experiments and surveys conducted at hospitals, laboratories, and pharmaceutical companies to speed up drug discovery and clinical trials. 
Impact Quantzig offered the client an AI system and predictive analytics solution that helped to identify new genome targets by linking them with large-scale data. The model was used to reduce traditional cycle time and eliminate data silos.  

Game-Changing Solutions for the Pharmaceutical Industry   

Drug development is a long research-intensive process involving multiple stakeholders. Pharmaceutical companies invest their time and resources in analyzing the data, followed by R&D, and clinical trials, leading to drug development. It is necessary to streamline drug development processes so that these medicines can save lives. The time saved in the drug development process translates into life years potentially saved. 

AI and predictive analytics solutions help pharma companies predict drug behavior, improve the success rate for clinical trials, and enable data-driven decisions for rapid drug development. Quantzig’s pharma and life sciences analytics experts can help pharma companies transform drug development by quickly analyzing a large and diverse pool of data.  

The Challenges of the Client 

Our client is a leading pharma company from South America that wanted to reduce the cost of biologics development. The client needed to analyze large volumes of biomedical data from experiments and surveys conducted at hospitals, laboratories, and pharmaceutical companies. This data included sequencing, gene expression, molecular, protein, drug interaction, and clinical trial data.   

The client was also facing issues due to the prevalence of data silos, an increasing rate of expensive failures, and sub-par projections. In addition to increasing cost structure, this led to lengthy trial cycles in the drug discovery process, with specific molecules taking more than a decade to get regulatory approvals. 

The client approached Quantzig for a tailor-made AI system and predictive analytics solution capable of decreasing drug development costs and speeding up drug discovery and clinical trials. The client also wanted to reduce the drug development cycle time and minimize prediction failures
