Molecular Staging, Lilly Search for Biomarkers Linked to Sepsis

NEW YORK, Jan. 27 - Molecular Staging said today it is partnering with Eli Lilly in clinical proteomics research to identify biomarkers linked to sepsis.

 

Molecular staging will use bioinformatics and its chip-based clinical proteomics platform to search for proteins associated with the body's systemic failure due to infection.

 

Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.
