Personalized Swiss Sepsis Study

2019-10-24 12:49:55 | BioPortfolio


This multi-center study is to focus on patients with sepsis in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) in order to better understand the complex host-pathogen interaction and clinical heterogeneity associated with sepsis. Understanding this heterogeneity may allow the development of novel diagnostic approaches. Data from patients will be analyzed using state-of-the art analytical algorithms for biomarker discovery including machine learning and multidimensional mathematical modelling to explore the large datasets generated. In order to discover digital biomarkers for the study endpoints a case-control study design will be used to compare data patterns from patients with sepsis (cases) and those without sepsis (controls).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Information application based on a variety of coding methods to minimize the amount of data to be stored, retrieved, or transmitted. Data compression can be applied to various forms of data, such as images and signals. It is used to reduce costs and increase efficiency in the maintenance of large volumes of data.

Various units or machines that operate in combination or in conjunction with a computer but are not physically part of it. Peripheral devices typically display computer data, store data from the computer and return the data to the computer on demand, prepare data for human use, or acquire data from a source and convert it to a form usable by a computer. (Computer Dictionary, 4th ed.)

The science and art of collecting, summarizing, and analyzing data that are subject to random variation. The term is also applied to the data themselves and to the summarization of the data.

Systematic gathering of data for a particular purpose from various sources, including questionnaires, interviews, observation, existing records, and electronic devices. The process is usually preliminary to statistical analysis of the data.

Devices capable of receiving data, retaining data for an indefinite or finite period of time, and supplying data upon demand.
