IMIDomics announced that it is expanding its strategic collaboration with Bristol Myers Squibb, a global biopharmaceutical company. This expanded partnership extends the existing relationship between the two companies, advancing their shared commitment to accelerate research and development aimed at treating IMID patients. In 2016, IMIDomics entered into a strategic partnership with BMS to harness their unique clinical and molecular database, and multidimensional analysis concentrated on IMIDs such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.

This strategic collaboration has continued to provide Bristol Myers Squibb with comprehensive insight into the clinical and molecular underpinnings of IMIDs. Under this expanded collaboration, Bristol Myers Squibb and IMIDomics will partner to collect clinical and epidemiological data from patients with Sjogren's disease and atopic dermatitis, generating cutting-edge biomolecular data. Data generated through this collaboration will be incorporated into IMIDomics' proprietary Clinical Discovery Engine, which integrates and analyzes comprehensive epidemiological, clinical and multi-omic biomolecular data from patients to enable new understandings of complex IMIDs.

By tapping IMIDomics' unique clinical network and resources, Bristol Myers Squibss and IMIDomics can select the right drug for the right patient at the right time. While the financial terms of the agreement have not been disclosed, this expanded collaboration underscores the strong partnership and commitment between IMIDomics and Bristol Myers Squibb, as well as a shared passion to revolutionizing the treatment landscape for immune-mediated inflammatory diseases.
