Periodic Reporting for period 1 - PAPRAT (PAPRAT (Predictive Algorithm for Pre-Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment). The new and most efficient multiple biomarkers-based system for an early selection of RA treatment intensity)
Reporting period: 2019-09-01 to 2020-02-29
RA is a relevant source of disability worldwide with high impact in patient’s quality of life and a relevant economic burden with increasing associated cost. Early start of effective therapy is crucial for RA management; however, there are not accurate prognosis factors for pre-RA.
PAPRAT, is a biomarker-based prognosis system capable of classifying pre-RA patients (a clinical stage in which early intervention is more advantageous to patients and health care systems) and discerning which will need an early intensive treatment to control or their disease.
The goal of the PAPRAT project is to give an easy, precise, effective and efficient tool to assist rheumatologist on therapeutic management, improving current clinical practice at pre-RA. The Phase 1 intended to set up clinical validation, cloud-based platform, regulatory requirements (e.g. demonstration of clinical performance, security and quality for commercial approval), identify and contact stakeholders and perform a market and financial analysis.
We are going to apply for next phase 2 call to implement phase 1 work plan and reach market.
