Data from Berg's Proprietary Interrogative Biology™ Platform presented at the AACR Annual Meeting 2013
Berg - a biopharmaceutical company committed to uncovering health solutions through a data-driven, biological research approach - announced today that it will be presenting four abstracts at the AACR Annual Meeting 2013, in Washington, D.C. These data reveal key insights about cancer-cell metabolism and add to the growing body of evidence supporting the potential of Berg's proprietary Interrogative Biology™ Platform, which combines sophisticated analytics and integrated data models to understand human health and provide a broader view on diseases processes.
"These new findings provide further details into the metabolic machinery of cancer, allowing us to identify novel biomarkers and potential treatment targets," said Niven R. Narain , President, Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer of Berg. "At Berg, we are working to understand human health more broadly and uncover solutions for diseases by mapping the first full picture of the human biology ecosystem, rather than individual disease triggers. We believe this approach has great potential to advance the treatment of cancer and other diseases."
"We are in the midst of a paradigm shift in the way we approach treating complex diseases like cancer," said Eric E. Schadt , PhD, Director of the Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at Mount Sinai. "Berg is heralding this shift by challenging the mold of the current scientific process and evaluating the interconnectedness of the human system, rather than singular targets."
The data from Berg being presented at the AACR Annual Meeting 2013 include the following:
