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.

The new biomarker can be determined directly in the dried blood spot (DBS) extract with low sample consumption, easy sample preparation, high reproducibility and it presents the possibility of being used in high throughput screenings.
Glucosylsphingosine (lyso-Gb1) Plays a Central Role in the Diagnosis and Proper Assessment of Disease Severity in Gaucher Patients
We have developed and systematically validated a high-throughput workflow for the simple testing of GD patients: beta-glucocerebrosidase enzymatic activity, glycosylsphingosine (lyso-Gb1) quantification in DBS followed by GBA gene sequencing from the sample blood sample. We report data from over 940…
Fabry disease is an X-linked inherited lysosomal storage disease characterized by a deficient alpha-galactosidase caused by mutations in GLA gene. We present here the data collected over a period of over10 years regarding in vitro Fabry diagnosis.
CentoMD® is a browser-based tool that enables access to a high-quality repository of genetic, biochemical and human phenotype ontology (HPO)-based clinical information. All patients provided informed consent before inclusion in the DB.
Hereditary Tyrosinemia type 1 (HT-1) is a rare genetic disorder in which the newborn child lacks the ability to break down the amino acid tyrosine. As a result of this deficiency, toxic substances build up in the blood and can cause liver failure, kidney dysfunction and neurological problems. The…
