Caprion Announces Biomarker Discovery Collaboration with Berlex
News Jan 25, 2006
The collaboration will use Caprion’s CellCarta® proteomics platform to support biomarker discovery. Caprion will identify pharmacodynamic biomarkers in plasma resulting from the administration of Berlex compounds in pre-clinical development.
"Caprion is looking forward to working with Berlex on their pre-clinical therapeutic candidates," noted Dr. Daniel Chelsky, Chief Scientific Officer at Caprion.
"We believe Caprion’s capabilities in the discovery of protein biomarkers will significantly impact our partner’s development efforts."
Caprion’s proprietary proteomics platform profiles the expression and identity of proteins detected in tissues and blood plasma.
Restoring the ability to walk following spinal cord injury requires neurons in the brain to reestablish communication pathways with neurons in the spinal cord, Mature neurons, however, are unable to regenerate their axons to facilitate this process. New research in mice shows one potential route to overcome this limitation may be by targeting liver kinase B1 (LKB1) protein.
