By achieving certification for the assay, called PredictSure IBD, the Cambridge, UK-based firm can sell it for clinical use across Europe.

The researchers hope the datasets from their study can help to explain the effects of disease-associated variants on specific cell types of the immune system.

Researchers will use Adaptive's immune repertoire sequencing technology to look for a molecular signature of type 1 diabetes.

Researchers used fine mapping and other approaches to prioritize proposed coding and non-coding causal variants at rheumatoid arthritis- and type 1 diabetes-linked loci.

These differentially variable positions appear to implicate stress response in rheumatoid arthritis development and possibly in other autoimmune conditions.

Data for hundreds of thousands of participants led to 20 new risk loci for allergic rhinitis, which were further examined by functional annotation and fine mapping.

A Harvard Medical School-led team applied their SNP-seq and FREP approach to identify nearly 150 candidate functional SNPs for juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

The startup plans to harness single-cell genomics and computational analysis to discover therapies for autoimmune disease and cancer.

HTG Molecular will provide Firalis with technology and components to support its commercialization of a rheumatoid arthritis theranostic assay.

PredictImmune's test relies on a 16-marker panel run using quantitative PCR to stratify Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis patients according to the severity of their illnesses.

The panel is designed to measure genetic markers in whole-blood samples in order to predict which patients are likely to experience a severe, relapsing form of the disease.

CytoReason's machine-learning algorithms extract information from multi-omic measurements to improve indication prioritization and highlight new treatment targets.

The team used genetic scoring to identify infants without a family history of the disease who had more than a 10 percent risk for developing islet antibodies.

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center researchers found that disease risk loci overlap with transcription factor binding sites.

The effort, which relied on Oxford BioDynamics' EpiSwitch platform, resulted in an assay that researchers believe could be developed into a test to guide therapy selection for patients.

The company's new effort, DigitalMe, has recruited more than 5,000 participants so far, tracking patient health reports alongside genomics and repeat blood biomarker measurements.

The Boston-based startup wants to help individuals interpret their HLA data for ancestry and health, and participate in research studies. 

New research suggests that some risky and protective variants in the LRRK2 gene have shared genetic effects in Crohn's disease and Parkinson's disease.

Qualified patients will have immediate access to IQuity's MS test, with expected access later to an IBD-IBS test, and a fibromyalgia test.

Theradiag's Lisa Tracker monitoring kits will be referenced in supply contracts for Merck's immunosuppressant drug.
