SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nodality, Inc., an innovative biotechnology company advancing discovery, development and use of transformative therapies by revealing functional systems biology, announced today results of the Company’s comprehensive research study to identify cell markers (biomarkers) of disease activity and treatment success in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients. The study findings demonstrated that Nodality’s SCNP technology, which measures functional pathways at the single cell level, can be used to identify biomarkers of responsiveness to treatment with tumor necrosis factor inhibitors (TNFIs). RA affects an estimated two million Americans, and TNFIs constitute the most commonly prescribed therapy. Approximately half of patients respond to treatments such as TNFIs, leaving a substantial unmet need to identify which patients are more likely to respond to current therapies. Optimizing use of currently available therapies could potentially delay tissue damage and progression of disease.
