Detect biomarkers associated with Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)

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

Abstract

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.

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.
