Adjutorium: state-of-the-art automated machine learning for breast cancer

An online tool for breast cancer prognostication and decision support

Adjutorium is an online machine learning-based prognostication tool that enables patients and clinicians to predict survival rates and treatment benefits for early invasive breast cancer after breast-conserving surgery.

For women with early-stage breast cancer

Adjutorium predicts survival outcomes for patients with early breast cancer after breast conserving surgery. It can be used in consultation with specialists to decide whether adjuvant therapies are right for any given patient.

Designed to complement the expertise of clinicians

Adjutorium predicts the most likely outcomes for a patient based on current knowledge and data, but will never provide a 100% accurate prediction for any individual. Adjutorium’s predictions serve to complement discussions with specialists in a more personalised context.

State-of-the-art machine learning

Adjutorium makes predictions using a state-of-the-art automated machine learning model that was trained using historical data for patients.

The model requests some information about the patient, and uses a machine learning algorithm to predict the patient’s survival profile under different treatment options using data for similar women diagnosed with breast cancer in the past.

Validated using data for nearly 1 million women

Adjutorium was trained and externally validated on data for nearly 1 million women captured in the cancer registries of the UK and the US.

Developed by a multidisciplinary team of academics

Adjutorium was developed through by the van der Schaar Lab through a collaboration with Public Health England and a multidisciplinary team of academics from UCLA, the University of Cambridge, The University of Oxford, Queen Mary University, and The Alan Turing Institute.
