Valby, 2017-01-25 08:00 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

H. Lundbeck A/S (Lundbeck) is collaborating with IBM’s Watson Health to accelerate the development of innovative medicines to treat psychiatric and neurological disorders. The collaboration will combine Lundbeck’s expertise in the treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders with IBM’s cognitive and knowledge-based analytics to foster the discovery and development of new innovative treatments of disorders such as schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease.

“We strive to develop treatments that affect the underlying biological mechanisms of psychiatric and neurological disorders rather than treating only symptoms. By combining our expertise in brain research with IBM’s cognitive computer technology, we expect to improve our foundation for this work, so we can develop new and improved treatments for the 425 million people who suffer from the psychiatric and neurological disorders which Lundbeck focuses on,” says Anders Gersel Pedersen, Executive Vice President, Research & Development at Lundbeck.

Better understanding of diseases

This collaboration will help Lundbeck establish an innovative approach and new platform for real world evidence and advanced analytics where Lundbeck can take advantage of Watson technology across clinical data from millions of anonymized patient lives made available through the Watson Health Cloud.

In addition, this platform will allow Lundbeck to use the Watson technologies across additional Lundbeck data (clinical or other) as well as claims data that will be provided through this collaboration and made available in the Watson Health Cloud. Finally, Lundbeck will leverage IBM Watson for drug discovery to take advantage of a knowledge-driven approach and in support of the identification of potential new drug targets and alternative drug indications to accelerate discovery and advance the development of therapies.

“IBM can help create data-driven hypotheses based on Lundbeck’s questions, which can then be used in further research on fighting psychiatric and neurological disorders. Firstly, we will launch projects within schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease, which we hope will help us better understand these diseases and possible treatments,” says Anders Gersel Pedersen.

Det er især en sund udvikling i kundernes økonomi, der er et væsentligt element i et ganske fornuftigt regnskab fra Danske Bank.Der var dog på forhånd ventet pæne tal fra Danmarks største bank, og derfor bør aktien ikke rokke sig voldsomt i torsdagens handel på aktiemarkedet.Det vurderer aktieanalytiker Thomas Eskildsen fra Jyske Bank.- Det er et fint regnskab, og banken er inde i en ganske stabil..
