Gilead Sciences (NSDQ:GILD) is reportedly slated to pay Alphabet’s Verily Life Sciences $90 million over three years to analyze cells from patients with rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and lupus-related diseases.
By probing immune cells from patients involved in Gilead’s clinical trials, the companies hope to glean a better understanding of the immunological signatures of RA, IBD and lupus-related diseases. It’s the first large-scale use of Verily’s Immunoscape platform, which combines immunogenomic phenotyping and computational analysis to profile the molecular characteristics of inflammatory diseases.
