ScaiVision identifies a genomic signature that accurately predicts CAR-T cell therapy efficacy in B-cell lymphoma patients

ScaiVision is Scailyte’s in-house platform for analyzing single-cell data, including both scRNA/TCR/BCR-seq and high-parameter proteomics obtained by cytometry techniques such as mass cytometry (CyTOF).

ScaiVision identifies a genomic signature that accurately predicts CAR-T cell therapy efficacy in B-cell lymphoma patients

This example of biomarker discovery for cell therapy efficiency uses a public single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-Seq) dataset published by Deng, et al. (2020) in Nature Medicine. scRNA-Seq data of 23 large B cell lymphoma (LBCL) patients treated with CAR-T cell therapy and 3-month follow-up data available were analyzed. AI-driven ScaiVision integrated scRNA-Seq with the follow-up data and discovered a transcriptomic signature predicting complete response (CR, n = 9) vs. partial response or progressive disease (PR/PD, n = 14). A predictive accuracy of 87.5% was achieved on held-out validation samples.

Scailyte calls cell therapy and other pharmaceutical companies which embrace the precision medicine approach. Do you have a drug candidate in preclinical or clinical development? Reach out to us and let’s discuss your specific interests and needs.

Diagnostic companies

Scailyte develops biomarker signatures and assay prototypes for complex diseases. We license our discoveries or engage in co-development projects with diagnostic companies willing to build products and services.

We identify and validate biomarkers and prototype assays for:

  • Screening and diagnosis
  • Prognosis
  • Prediction of therapy response

ScaiVision accurately diagnoses Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma

Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) is a rare skin cancer that is often misdiagnosed with atopic dermatitis (AD), a highly prevalent skin condition with similar clinical presentation. Currently used markers and assays have low sensitivity and are inconclusive to diagnose CTCL in early stages, leading to disease progression and up to 5-year delay in diagnosis. Advanced-stage diagnosis requires highly aggressive and costly chemotherapy treatment causing severe side effects. 

ScaiVision accurately diagnoses Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma

To address the differential CTCL diagnosis need, we identified CTCL-specific biomarkers using our proprietary single-cell data analysis platform ScaiVision. We have developed an IVD assay prototype using these biomarkers for simple, minimally invasive and cost-effective testing of suspected CTCL patients. The assay enables timely intervention, improves patient Quality of Life (QoL), dramatically reduces treatment costs associated with late-stage/misdiagnosis/comorbidities and, ultimately, saves lives.

Scailyte’s CTCL IVD assay will be the first clinically validated blood-based diagnostic test for CTCL with superior accuracy as compared to the current standard of care diagnostics. The assay will be used to screen recurrent AD patients suspected of CTCL. This approach offers rapid triage of recurrent AD patients at dermatology clinics. The assay will shorten diagnosis up to five years, reducing hospital costs associated with repeated visits and less accurate tests by allowing early treatment and improved patient outcome.
