Chronic Disease

Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes account for approximately 74% of all deaths globally¹ and this is projected to increase by a further 17% in the next 10 years².

This rise in Chronic Disease poses major challenges for healthcare and healthcare systems in the future.

To date, the delivery of precision medicines and their associated companion and complementary diagnostics has been largely in the treatment of cancer. However, many Global Pharma and Biotech companies now recognise the need for earlier identification and treatment for a range of chronic diseases and are developing drugs and diagnostic tests, alongside partners like Almac, to treat these conditions and improve patient outcomes.

Precision Medicine & Chronic Disease

Chronic diseases, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure, chronic kidney disease (CKD), metabolic dysfunction-associated steatohepatitis (MASH), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s affect billions of people worldwide.

These conditions are complex and heterogeneous, often manifesting in diverse ways, which can make accurate diagnosis & appropriate treatment challenging.

Working in tandem with Biopharma clients, Almac are trying to unravel the complex biology underlying various chronic diseases, by applying advanced technologies and robust science to help lead the way in precision medicine. Our aim is to be a key player in revolutionising the diagnosis and treatment of chronic diseases, empowering patients and healthcare providers with effective solutions.

Almac Biomarker Solutions for Chronic Disease

Almac Diagnostic Services has experience supporting biomarker strategies across multiple chronic disease indications. We help Biopharma Partners to develop precision medicine diagnostic solutions for their Biomarker programmes to help identify the right patient populations within clinical trials who should receive novel therapeutics in a targeted way. We aim to bring both drug and diagnostic test towards commercialisation and available in the market for routine clinical practice. Helping patients access new and novel treatments and helping clinicians in the identification and treatment of patients earlier in the chronic disease progression journey and there by reducing the potential future burden on healthcare budgets and systems as a result.
