BioGenes as New Designated Partner in EU Funded Dementia Project
News Feb 03, 2009
BioGenes GmbH has been chosen as a new partner of cNEUPRO. cNEUPRO is a EU funded research project to analyze neurodegenerative diseases and discover biomarkers, and so improve early and differential diagnosis of Alzheimer’s dementia. BioGenes will provide laboratory facilities and key personnel to develop specific monoclonal antibodies against novel neurochemical dementia biomarkers in blood and cerebrospinal fluid that have been identified during the project. These monoclonal antibodies may not only be used for diagnostics, but also have potential as therapeutic agents since they may access the CNS space. Reliable differential clinical diagnosis of very early dementia stages is crucial for choosing the most effective therapeutic strategy. Recent research has demonstrated that multiparametric neurochemical dementia diagnostics (NDD) in cerebrospinal fluid does improve early and differential diagnosis of dementias. cNEUPRO will establish European standard operation procedures (SOPs) for NDD and first NDD reference centres in Portugal and Hungary. cNEUPRO unites the forces of nineteen biotech and bioinformatic companies as well as leading clinical and proteomic dementia research centres.
Computer bits are binary, with a value of 0 or 1. By contrast, neurons in the brain can have all kinds of different internal states, depending on the input that they received. This allows the brain to process information in a more energy-efficient manner than a computer. A new study hopes to bring the two closer together.
MIT researchers have developed a cryptographic system that could help neural networks identify promising drug candidates in massive pharmacological datasets, while keeping the data private. Secure computation done at such a massive scale could enable broad pooling of sensitive pharmacological data for predictive drug discovery.
