According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 2 billion people annually experience some form of GI disease, affecting one in four individuals worldwide. Lynx.MD's data-driven solutions aim to tackle this global health challenge head-on with comprehensive real-world datasets that address pervasive gastroenterological diseases, including:
Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD): NAFLD is a leading cause of liver disease worldwide impacting approximately 32% of adults.
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD): GERD affects an estimated 20% of adults, causing heartburn and other potential complications.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS): Afflicting 10-15% of the global population is a chronic disorder impacting the colon and significantly affecting quality of life.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Globally an estimated 10 million people suffer from one form of IBD; chronic autoimmune conditions causing inflammation in the digestive tract including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
Colon Cancer: Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. In 2020, more than 1.9 million new cases of colorectal cancer and more than 930 000 deaths.
A recent report by ISPOR stated, “ Researchers have estimated that the use of real-world evidence could reduce trial costs between 5% to 50% to expedite safety monitoring and simplify trial and data collection.” In an era where Bio Pharma and Medtech companies increasingly need real-world data for therapeutic innovation, pharmaceutical and medtech leaders are eager to explore collaborative opportunities. The depth of Lynx.MD's data offers a unique advantage for those seeking to advance research and AI development, validate therapies, and accelerate improvements in care for gastroenterological patients.
