Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men. In particular, hormone refractory prostate cancer is not curable and targeted therapies are yet not available.
Despite the rising knowledge about genes involved in the formation and occurrence of cancers, only a limited amount of genes has been identified to be involved in hereditary cancers, e.g. BRCA1, BRCA2.
Malignancy marker for therapy planning
The diagnosis, classification and therapy of prostate cancer are based on the PSA value, the Gleason score from histology obtained by prostate biopsies and an imaging diagnosis from CT and bone scintigraphy.
Combinatory Asthma Endoytping Assay
Asthma is a disease of several subtypes characterized by different severity and a distinct immunological background. Most importantly, several subtypes of allergic asthma need to be correctly identified and distinguished from forms of non-allergic asthma.
Click-Mass Spectrometry of lipids
Aberrations in fatty acid metabolism are associated with pathological states and have become a focus of current research, particularly due to the interest in metabolic overload diseases.
Diagnosis of osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common degenerative disease of joints world-wide. About two-third of people over 65 years are affected, whereas the etiology is largely unclear.
Novel Markers for Male Fertility Diagnosis
Infertility affects an estimated 15 percent of couples globally, amounting to 48.5 million couples. Forty percent of cases are linked to men. An important factor of male infertility is an insufficient quality of sperms due to abnormal shape and/or motility.
A Novel Marker for Brown Fat Activity
Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a special type of fat, which regulates the body temperature by fatty acid oxidation.
Pain is probably the most common symptom and sensation of a disease, and a big individual and socioeconomic challenge.
Druggable oncogenic fusions
Cancer patients frequently bear therapeutically relevant genome alteration. For instance, lung adenocarcinomas of patients that have never smoked carry genome alterations affecting kinases, such as EGFR mutations and translocations affecting ALK, ROS1 and RET genes.
Epigenetics in AML
DNA-methylation (DNAm) of CpG dinucleotides is a key epigenetic process. Upon cell division, the DNAm pattern is maintained on the newly synthesized DNA strand by DNA methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1), whereas DNAm pattern changes are triggered by DNMT3A and DNMT3B that act as de novo methyltransferases.
Determination of the Biological Age
Biological age is influenced by parameters, such as genetic background, disease and lifestyle. Currently, the biological age can be assessed by measuring telomere length, DNA rearrangements or protein alterations.
Over the last couple of years the overall survival time of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) has increased significantly due to the development of novel therapeutic strategies.
Long-term culture associated changes need to be considered for quality control of cell preparations. The invention discloses a simple method to track cellular aging based on continuous DNA-methylation changes at six specific CpG sites.
Diabrux is a user-friendly and the first bite film validated in clinical studies for the standardised, quantitative diagnosis of sleep bruxism. Diabrux is worn by the patient like a night splint. The device is based on a hard plate, which is covered by five specifically linked layers with different colours and defined abrasion properties. A fully automated evaluation software is provided for standardized, objective, quantitative analysis. Diabrux facilitates monitoring of bruxism activity. Thus, personalized therapy planning is possible and cost-intensive treatments can be scheduled more accurately.
Faster MRI examinations
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an expensive diagnostic imaging examination. A new method developed by the University of Duisburg-Essen significantly shortens MRI examination times by synthetically generating STIR sequences without the otherwise time-consuming STIR scans.
Vim3 and Mxi-2 antibodies
The invention relates to Vimentin3 and Mxi-2 antibodies found for the non-invasive diagnosis of kidney tumors. These antibodies can make a clear differentiation of oncocytoma and RCC types and allow targeted therapeutic measurements.
Benignant prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a disease that affects about 75 % of men between the ages of 60 to 69. Moreover, autopsy studies revealed that the prevalence increases up to 86% in people over 80 years of age.
Magnetic particles are often used to transport and/or separate biomolecules such as DNA or proteins. These particles have biochemically functionalized surfaces and are used as markers in analytical biotechnology and medical technology.
High-Redshift BODIPY Dyes
Fluorescent molecules are widely used in bioimaging and medicinal applications for several decades due to their high sensitivity and easy visibility.
