Description
Abstract: Patients with rare diseases such as monogenetic cardiomyopathies are in desperate need for drugs targeting their disease. The cost of drug development from initial concept to FDA approval has been estimated to be about 2.6 billion USD. With high throughput transcriptomics the Library of Integrated Network-based Cellular Signatures (LINCS) has publicly released transcriptional profiles quantifying the effects of more than 25,000 perturbagens on the expression of 978 genes in up to 77 cell lines. We have cross-referenced drugs across the whole database ending up with 1.3 billion data points. With this strategy we identified drugs to target the consequences of Lamin A/C haploinsufficiency causing dilated cardiomyopathy with severe arrhythmogenicity. These drugs which have already been approved for the use in humans and can be repurposed. This approach comes at a fraction of the cost of traditional drug development through transcriptional matching the disease to the drugs in the database and sequential testing of the candidate drugs against iPSC derived cardiomyocytes from healthy and diseased humans.
