TAmiRNA and advanceCOR, a drug developing biotechnology company which focuses on personalized medicine in cardiovascular diseases, receive Eurostars project entitled: ”A novel microRNA-based platelet function biomarker for personalized anti-thrombotic treatment”.  The aim of the Eurostars project is to validate the use of the thrombomiR™ kit for management of anti-thrombotic therapies. The thrombomiR™ kit is a minimally invasive blood test that can determine changes in platelets reactivity (for example due to a therapy), based on the quantitative analysis of microRNAs, Specifically, the thrombomiR™ kit allows the targeted detection and quantitation of platelet-specific microRNAs in blood plasma. The concentration of these microRNAs increases in the course of activation of platelets and decreases as a result of therapeutic inactivation. Thus, [...]
