Human physiology is a complex system composed of many interacting negative feedback loops involving hormones, nerves, transporters, physical anatomy and other factors. Redundancy in physiology complicates accurate prediction of a patient’s response. For any given medical therapy or intervention, 10-90% of potential patients are resistant, achieving less than half of the expected response. Prediction of nonresponse is a necessary step in minimizing inefficiencies in health care and biomedical product evaluation and regulation.
