blood microsampling, precision medicine, and exciting california cardiovascular research

Posted by Neoteryx on Aug 20, 2019 4:10:00 AM

The fast-growing field of precision medicine aims to follow through on the potential of personalization and data aggregation technologies in an era of smarter healthcare. Its purpose is twofold: to better understand the mechanisms of disease, and to promote more modern and equitable approaches to care.

Here in California, precision medicine has received a surge of adrenaline from the California Initiative to Advance Precision Medicine (CIAPM), a program launched in 2015. CIAPM has seen to completion eight innovative, collaborative translational research projects all over the state from a variety of private and public institutions, awarding over $11 million in support to explore fascinating ideas and make important and useful discoveries.

AKU, NTBC, and VAMS®: fighting a rare metabolic disease

Posted by Neoteryx on Aug 15, 2019 5:51:00 AM

The Challenge of AKU

Alkaptonuria, or AKU, is a rare and less-studied inherited metabolic disorder. It results from a deficiency of homogentisic acid dioxygenase (HGD), part of the tyrosine degradation pathway. As of yet, there is no cure. However, The National Centre for Alkaptonuria, hosted by The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals, is supporting international clinical trials that may help change that. And clinical chemist Joseph Taylor says that Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS®) technology and Mitra® devices already play an important role in the relevant drug development process.
