The novel quantitative technique of "Targeted Profiling" of 1H 1D NMR data is applied to a unique model of rheumatoid arthritis. A number of candidate biomarkers not previously identified using NMR techniques are identified related to inflammation and immune response. The pharmaceutical relevance of several of these metabolites is discussed.
We developed an automated sample preparation protocol based on a robotic platform PAL RTC (CTC Analytics AG, Zwingen Switzerland), which represent a modified Bligh and Dyer method producing samples for both hydrophilic metabolomics using GC-MS and lipidomics using SFC-MS simultaneously.READ MORE
