"Toward real-time, personalized medicine using wearable sensors:  Continuous temperature monitoring and early detection of febrile adverse events in cancer patients"


Accurately predicting the onset of disease is a major challenge in clinical medicine because the genesis of diseases is generally a complex and dynamic process. Wearable sensor technologies provide an unprecedented opportunity to collect physiological data at orders of magnitude higher high time-resolution than conventional clinical practice. This provides unprecedented opportunities for investigating the dynamics of disease processes and may usher in a new era of real-time, personalized medicine. We have proposed the potential of real-time, continuously measured physiological data as a non-invasive, “digital biomarker” approach for detecting the earliest stages in the transition to a disease state. In this talk, I will describe an example of our interdisciplinary team’s work on this topic that uses the early detection and possible prediction of febrile (i.e., fever-associated) adverse events in cancer events as an important application.
