AI-BASED RETINOPATHY DIAGNOSIS SITAGLIPTIN

AND IBS

Type 2 tablet Januvia (sitagliptin) has been

found to be linked to the incidence of

inflammatory bowel disease (IBS) among

patients with Type 2 diabetes. Available

since 2006, these DPP-4 inhibitors reduce

glucagon and blood glucose levels. In a

study in the UK more than 700 general

practices contributing data to the United

Kingdom Clinical Practice Research

Datalink. It was found that compared

with use of other antidiabetic drugs, use

of DPP-4 inhibitors was associated with

a 75% increase in risk of inflammatory

bowel disease. www.bmj.com

IDx, a privately-held AI diagnostics

company, announced today that the US

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has

granted the company's De Novo request

to market IDx-DR, an AI-based diagnostic

system for the autonomous detection of

diabetic retinopathy, a leading cause of

blindness. IDx-DR is the first autonomous,

AI-based diagnostic system authorised

for commercialisation by the FDA.

"The FDA's authorisation to market

IDx-DR is an historic moment that has the

potential to launch a transformation in the

way US healthcare is delivered," said Dr.

Michael Abràmoff, founder and president

of IDx. "Autonomous AI systems have

massive potential to improve healthcare

productivity, lower healthcare costs,

and improve accessibility and quality. As

the first of its kind to be authorized for

commercialisation, IDx-DR provides a

roadmap for the safe and responsible use

of AI in medicine."

IDx-DR can be used to provide

an immediate, reliable assessment for

diabetic retinopathy, including macular

oedema, during a routine visit in a primary

care setting. As an autonomous, AIbased system, IDx-DR is unique in that it

makes an assessment without the need

for a clinician to also interpret the image

or results, making it usable by healthcare

providers who may not normally be

involved in eye care.

IDx-DR received expedited review

under the FDA's Breakthrough Devices

program following a pivotal clinical trial

conducted at 10 primary care sites

across the US. Primary care physician,

DR Michele, of CMC-Elizabeth Family

Medicine and the University of North

Carolina School of Medicine, was one of

the trial's principal investigators.

"I am excited that IDx-DR is now

cleared for use," said Dr. Birch. "There is

a definite need for a more affordable and

accessible option for the early detection

of diabetic retinopathy. Making sure that

my patients with diabetes have annual

eye examinations has always been a

challenge, but IDx-DR can make it easier

by allowing me to conduct an examination

right in my office."
