Personalised pharmacometabolomic optimisation of treatment for hypertension

 

Hypertension, or high blood pressure (BP), is a serious medical condition, and the single biggest contributor to circulatory diseases which continue to dominate as the leading cause of death and morbidity across the EU. It accounts for almost 10 percent of all healthcare-related costs. Systolic hypertension leads to a broad variety of diseases with an immense impact on both patients and healthcare systems.

 

HYPERMARKER will unleash the potential of pharmacometabolomics to provide a ‘smart’ prescription of antihypertensive therapy. Well-phenotyped cohorts from eleven European countries will provide metabolomic profiles and blood samples for pharmacometabolomic assessments to identify predictors of treatment response in hypertension using advanced AI and deep learning methods. Prediction models for individual treatment responses to antihypertensive medication will be clinically validated and refined through an innovative RCT across 4 sites in Europe. The result is a clinical decision support tool that will give clinicians the ability to make an informed selection of whether the patient they are treating will best respond to the use of angiotensin inhibition, calcium antagonists, beta-blockers, or a range of other existing drugs with evidence-based for BP control.

 

To ensure sustainability, the project will also develop a framework for the uptake of this tool in routine care for patients with hypertension across Europe and beyond. HYPERMARKER will be implemented by a group of world-class scientists and clinicians from a diversity of disciplines who have collaborated multiple times and have a track record of leading key national and EU-funded initiatives to deliver high-impact results.
