Detect biomarkers associated with Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)

Using the SomaScan® Assay to identify new biomarkers in liver disease


In this 1-hour discussion, learn how the SomaScan Assay can be used to detect biomarkers associated with NAFLD—specifically, the identification of circulating proteins associated with fibrosis in NAFLD using a custom 5k-plex SomaScan Assay. Also discussed is the importance of identifying non-invasive biomarkers that improve clinical decision-making and drug development for NAFLD, and the strategies for multiplexed validation of candidate biomarkers discovered using the SomaScan Assay.

WebinarAccelerating precision medicine of cancer with SomaScan® proteomics

Proteomics has emerged as the next frontier in precision medicine, and several innovative proteomics platforms have been developed to drive biomarker discovery. We [at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center] are using the currently most comprehensive proteomics technology -- the SomaScan Platform, which measures 7,000 proteins -- to discover and independently validate diagnostic, predictive, and prognostic biomarkers for various cancers.

WebinarImproving clinical development productivity with high-plex proteomics

While the vast majority of approved pharmaceuticals target proteins, knowledge of the full complement of proteins that are acted on by drugs, or are potentially druggable, remains incomplete. Assessment of the human proteome is thus increasingly recognized as a priority for successful and cost-effective drug development and clinical research.
