InvivoSciences, a pre-clinical stage biotech firm based in Madison, is gearing up for a potential FDA application for a heart failure drug and companion diagnostic tool.

In an interview yesterday, she highlighted a “severe unmet need” for drugs to effectively treat patients for a specific form of heart failure using precision medicine. She noted this approach, which involves matching disease prevention and treatment to specific patients and populations, is already being successfully applied to cancer treatment.
