Biomarkers - CentoGuard

Biomarkers play ideally an essential role in the early diagnosis, prediction and therapeutic monitoring of diseases, reflecting the burden of the disease for the patients. Regular monitoring both for disease onset and progression but also demonstrating the benefit of potential treatment are of high value for the patients. Biomarkers bring rationality in the treatment of patients with rare diseases.

  • Familial hypercholesterolemia panel

    Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by severe elevations in total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels that lead to atherosclerotic plaque deposition in the coronary arteries and proximal aorta at an early age, leading to an…

  • Rapid intravenous enzyme infusion

    In the latest issue of American Journal of Hematology, we have published results of recent collaborative study on development of enzyme replacement therapies in Gaucher disease type 1. Together with colleagues from University Rostock, Israel and Australia, we tested effects of rapid intravenous…

  • Lysosomal storage diseases (LSD) panel

    Lysosomal storage diseases (LSD) are a heterogeneous group of inherited disorders characterized by the accumulation of partially digested or undigested macromolecules in cells, due to the absence of different lysosomal enzymes, which ultimately results in cellular dysfunction and clinical…

  • Targeting G protein-coupled receptors

    Unbiased chemoproteomic profiling of small-molecule interactions with endogenous proteins is important for drug discovery. For meaningful results, all protein classes have to be tractable, including G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). These receptors are hardly tractable by affinity pulldown from…

  • Quantification of amino acids and peptides

    Aqueous two-phase systems (ATPS) occur by the mixture of two polymers or a polymer and an inorganic salt in water. It was shown that not only polymers but also ionic liquids in combination with inorganic cosmotrophic salts are able to build ATPS. Suitable for the formation of ionic liquid-based ATPS…
