The grant was awarded for the company's novel immune testing platform that aims to diagnose clinically relevant immune responses across a spectrum of acute and chronic conditions, thereby facilitating more targeted therapeutic interventions.

The ITT-Cytokine platform can help identify the root cause of chronic conditions, allowing practitioners to provide appropriate therapeutic interventions. As an example, Pharmasan Labs, Inc., in collaboration with NeuroScience, Inc., currently offers MY Lyme Immune I.D.™, which assesses whether an individual has had an immune response to the Lyme disease bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and whether the infection is currently active.

"While Lyme disease, food sensitivity, and other conditions are often diagnosed using antibody-based methodologies, these traditional detection methods can sometimes yield false-negative results," remarked Mieke Kellermann, President of Pharmasan Labs, Inc. "By assaying for the presence of antigen-specific T cells and elevated cytokine production in response to specific antigens, we are identifying the key drivers of inflammation underlying clinical pathology and symptoms. Therefore, the ITT-Cytokine platform offers a superior diagnostic approach to antibody-based testing."
