Hereditary Neuromuscular Diseases are rare multifactorial conditions difficult to ascertain; it’s noteworthy that 𝟲𝟬% of patients lack an accurate diagnosis. In Europe, 𝟱𝟬𝟬 𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘀𝗮𝗻𝗱 people suffer from these diseases, with 𝟯𝟬% of cases leading to permanent disability.

CoMPaSS-NMD proposes an innovative approach to diagnose these diseases based on Artificial Intelligence.

“The goal is to develop AI algorithms to improve the diagnosis of hereditary neuromuscular diseases,” explains Annalisa De Angelis, communication consultant at Deep Blue, partner of the project. “Due to being caused by various and complex genetic interactions, these pathologies are challenging for specialists to comprehend.”

“Hence, it is necessary to find a way to effectively use patient data to quickly understand what is happening and intervene promptly with an appropriate therapeutic plan,” emphasizes Rossella Tupler, genetist at Università degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia, and project coordinator.
