The sequencing advance allows genome scale analysis of miRNAs and promises a more efficient discovery approach for safety biomarkers, enabling retrospective analysis. Dr. Kseniya Khamina, TAmiRNA research scientist, will deliver a presentation on ‘Next-generation sequencing pipeline for genome-scale analysis of circulating microRNAs as discovery approach for safety biomarkers’ (P338) during the Biomarkers Poster Session on Day Two, CC Exhibit Hall, of the meeting. The poster was co-authored by TAmiRNA and researchers from the Functional Genomics Center Zurich, Eli Lilly and Company and Merck & Co. Take advantage, meet Kseniya and discuss our latest developments and how TAmiRNA's products and services can assist your business or make an appointment NOW!
Early and reliable detection and monitoring of adverse events is essential for improving of patient safety, reducing late attrition of drug candidates, and enhancing understanding of toxic mechanisms. The Translational Safety Biomarker Pipeline (TransBioLine) project will focus on development of biomarkers of injury for liver, kidney, pancreas, vasculature, central nervous system (CNS) and the development of non-invasive microRNA biomarkers using liquid biopsies. The project is coordinated by the University of Zurich with Pfizer as industry lead, and involves 27 partners (pharmaceutical companies, small and medium-sized enterprises, and academic institutions) from ten European countries and the United States of America. With a total budget of € 28 million, the EU and the pharmaceutical companies involved are financing the [...]
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, [...]
