proteomic biomarkers

Investigators identified candidate protein markers from aptamer-based proteomic profiles of samples from women with or without late-onset preeclampsia.

The collaborators are each providing funding and samples, and plan to study about 100 patients with a subset of Castleman disease to identify biomarkers.

Institute for Systems Biology head Leroy Hood presented vignettes from last year's pilot project, laying the groundwork for more widespread wellness-focused work.

The study, funded last month by the NIH, will use SRM-MS to identify proteins from a subset of promising pathways that are associated with DKD patients' progression to end-stage disease.
