Predicting heart failure using the plasma proteome
To determine whether the plasma proteome adds value to established predictors in heart failure (HF) with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). We sought to derive and validate a plasma proteomic risk score (PRS) for survival in patients with HFrEF (HFrEF-PRS).
Until recently, proteomics had not been as thoroughly explored partly due to comparatively low-throughput. However, emerging proteomic technologies have recently matured and newer high-throughput techniques now allow larger scale proteomic characterization. One of these newer technological innovations, enhanced aptamer-based assays, has enabled a massively expanded candidate approach that borders on true proteomics in scale; thousands of protein-derived factors can be efficiently assayed simultaneously in a small biologic sample. In this webinar, you will explore this new large-scale protein array using an established HF patient registry to understand how the plasma proteome could meaningfully predict the risk of death or HF worsening and add to best conventional risk stratification, including clinical score and natriuretic peptides. By using the circulating proteome to improve risk prediction, it could add a new tool to help manage patients with HF and contribute to discovery of novel HF markers and pathways.

WebinarHuman proteomics: from the operating room to the lab and back
Optimizing platforms for surgical specimen collection and deep human phenotyping was used to enhance protein biomarker identification using proteomic tools. A series of studies using human eye fluids has helped to diagnose inflammatory retinal disease, select personalized therapies, stage cancer, and point to new therapeutic strategies. These approaches can be broadly applied to human surgical disease.
Webinar10 things I hate about proteomics
Dr. Williams explains in a fun - but serious - way how proteomics is revolutionizing drug discovery research and precision medicine worldwide today. He also couldn't resist telling the story about what happens when two proteins walk into a bar.
