Novel Marker for Diagnosis of Celiac Disease

31.08.2012
Celiac disease is a worldwide autoimmune disorder characterized by gluten intolerance, and is associated with a number of serious clinical conditions. The percentage of people with celiac disease is worldwide about 1%. In spite of increasing disease awareness, the mean diagnosis rate of 20 % remains low.<br><br>

Due to insufficient significance of present serological markers, biopsy and histology are the gold-standards for diagnosis. Therefore, a still unmet need is the development of a non-invasive, reliable diagnostic test for celiac disease.<br><br> Here we provide a novel marker, which exhibits a higher sensitivity than any other known diagnostic test for celiac disease. Furthermore, the novel marker features the detection by antibodies from patient sera under denaturated conditions, which allows the design of various assay formats of diagnostic kits.<br><br>

<b>Benefits:</b><ul> <li>Discovery of a novel protein and peptide combination, that facilitates effective and cheap diagnosis of celiac disease</li> <li>Recognition of antibodies from celiac disease patients sera with high sensitivity and specificity</li> <li>The diagnostic assay can be of any type, such as ELISA, Luminex bead arrays and strip arrays etc.</li> </ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> German patent application was filed in October 2009.<br> <br> <strong>Origin</strong><br> The technology was developed at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.</p>

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

HZI researchers decipher infection mechanisms of Yersinia and immune responses of the host

Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
