Doctor Evidence To Deploy Its AI-Enabled SaaS DOC Search And DOC Analytics Platform For COVID-19 To Accelerate Drug Discovery

SANTA MONICA, CALIF.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Doctor Evidence (“DRE”) has developed new tools for automated network meta-analysis, to now be used in the hunt for the most effective treatments for COVID-19. Clinical trial data is continuously emerging that can now be aggregated in real time using DRE’s DOC Analytics™ platform.

Based on the World Health Organization's International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (WHO ICTRP), as of July 12th there are some 1,798 COVID-19 treatment trials ongoing globally. Preliminary results and data from high-profile trials are now available, including for Remdesivir, Dexamethasone, and Hydroxychloroquine. DRE is using its first-in-industry DOC Analytics™ platform to generate real-time network meta-analysis for researchers to produce quantitative analysis for any therapeutic question in the global landscape. This approach will inform decision makers with regard to real-time updates from clinical trials for quantitative comparison, analysis, and reporting on relevant outcomes.

This novel quantitative analytic approach leverages DRE’s open DOC Search™ platform for COVID-19, which makes available annotated set of literature from CORD19, the open research dataset made available by the Allen Institute et al. in response to the White House Task Force call to action in late March. DOC Search™ provides the foundation of medical conceptual organization to identify which key concepts are being reported across literature and trials. This platform continues to be available to research groups at https://covid19.doctorevidence.com/.
