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.
Vim3 and Mxi-2 Antibody
Kidney cancer is classified as malignant tumors originating from different renal cells with several subtypes. The cells of these subtypes can mimic a benign kidney tumor, called oncocytoma.
Vim3-based 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.
Liquid biopsy based early breast cancer detection
Early breast cancer detection, most favorably in a pre-cancerous (in situ) state is critical for the course of the disease and its outcome.
Mutation Detection in ctDNA or CTC
Particularly in oncology, determination of gene mutation statuses serves as a biomarker to guide rational therapeutic decisions. Due to patient safety sequential biopsies or biopsies of multiple tumor lesions are not routinely performed.
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.
Targeted therapy has become a promising therapeutic approach within the last decade due to its reduced toxicity. However, further development of targeted approaches for the specific delivery of therapeutically active substances is required.
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.
Device for Breast Biopsy
The prospects of curing breast cancer are directly related to the time of detecting the disease.
