SOMAmer® reagents are novel affinity binders made from single-stranded DNA engineered with aromatic hydrocarbon side chains. These reagents combine the best properties of antibodies and aptamers – high affinity to thousands of proteins and reproducibly produced synthetically. SomaLogic has developed a proteomic platform called the SomaScan Assay for biomarker discovery that transforms protein concentrations in a biological sample into a corresponding DNA signature that can be measured using DNA quantification technology. The SomaScan Assay has been used to identify signals as surrogates for clinical outcomes, discover proteins associated with disease states, and correlate protein measurements with genetic variants. Given that the platform measures thousands of human proteins simultaneously in biological samples at high throughput, the knowledge base being built is unparalleled. We will describe the utility of the SomaScan Assay in oncology applications.
