The concept of a ‘mechanism-based taxonomy of human disease’ is currently replacing the outdated paradigm of diseases classified by clinical appearance. We have tackled the paradigm of mechanism-based patient subgroup identification in the challenging area of research on neurodegenerative diseases.Results
We have developed a knowledge base representing essential pathophysiology mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases. Together with dedicated algorithms, this knowledge base forms the basis for a ‘mechanism-enrichment server’ that supports the mechanistic interpretation of multiscale, multimodal clinical data.Availability and implementation
