   Immune Response Profiling & Biomarker Discovery

> Immune Response Profiling

Explore how the immune system reacts to a SARS-CoV-2 infection in different age groups, risk groups and certain individuals. Are there common mechanisms which can be used for preventing severe disease ?  A parallel profiling of 121 cytokines / chemokines and 141 cell surface markers can provide novel insights. Such analyses are possible from patient samples (plasma / serum), cell culture as well as animal models.

> Disease Severity biomarkers for COVID-19

Discover new biomarkers for COVID-19 patient stratification, early prevention and improvement of disease management by multiplex screens from plasma or serum samples.

New article | Selective elimination of immunosuppressive T cells in patients with multiple myeloma

| Feb 2021 | Scientists at Heidelberg University Hospital used our scioCD  platform to profile CD8+SLAMF7+ cell cultures:

"High throughput screening of 351 different cytokines and immune proteins in the supernatants of the T cells cultures revealed strong upregulation of IL-6, IL-8, both vital survival factors for myeloma cells, and CXCL5, a chemokine that could enhance the frequency of CD4 Treg, in the cultures containing CD8+SLAMF7+ cells. IL-2 and IL-5 were upregulated in the control cultures without CD8+SLAMF7+ T cells, highlighting a more activated state in the control group and suggestion IL-6 and IL-8 as potential effector cytokines for the suppressive CD8+SLAMF7+ T cells."

New article | BET-Inhibitor I-BET762 and PARP-Inhibitor Talazoparib Synergy in Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells

| Dec 2020 | Scientists at University of Sassari used our scioPhospho  platform to to analyse the synergy of BET and PARP inhibition in Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells:

"Among the I-BET762-associated and combination-associated differentially expressed proteins, 150 were common to both treatment conditions. ... Ranking I-BET762-associated and combination-associated DEPs by their differential expression revealed CHEK2 and PTEN to be among the top-downregulated proteins, whose deficiencies have been associated with HR defects and increased PARPi sensitivity.

"The quality of the data we have obtained is exceptional."

 

Prof. Claudio Mauro
Birmingham University, Institute of Inflammation and Ageing, Birmingham, UK

"We have performed an acetylation array on primary T lymphocytes with Sciomics. The quality of the data we have obtained is exceptional. They have a model of collaboration with the team conducting the experiment. This means they generate the data and assist with further analyses of the data. The screening has opened up several exciting ways forward for us."
