Atopic Dermatitis is one of the most prevalent disorders in the world, affecting up to 20% of children globally. Currently, there is no clinical device that can assist in the diagnosis or severity assessment of AD.
The study was performed on children between 4 months and 3 years of age and aimed at identifying children with Atopic Dermatitis with the use of Nevisense. Nevisense and its underlying Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) technology were used to create an Augmented Intelligence (AI) algorithm to identify healthy skin from atopic skin, even when measurements were performed on visually unaffected skin. The top-line results of the study indicated that:
- Nevisense can detect skin barrier dysfunction in children.
- Information about skin barrier dysfunction can be found on visually unaffected skin.
- Nevisense complex AI algorithms can be trained to include or disregard certain potential artifacts in the dataset, as exemplified by Age not being an affecting factor.
- The study also suggests an ability to predict a child’s likelihood of developing AD.
The authors concluded that EIS (Nevisense) can detect skin barrier dysfunction and differentiate skin of children with AD from healthy skin and suggests that EIS may have the ability to predict future AD development.
„For SciBase, these findings underscore our commitment to the skin barrier field, aiming to create products that enhance the prediction and management of childhood Atopic Dermatitis.
