Proteomics in personalized medicine
I just learned about these companies this week and I'm pretty excited about them. These are both companies that are using proteomic biomarker assays to supplement personalized medicine.
Integrated diagnostics is based in Seattle and has a system called XPresys Lung that uses biomarkers to determine whether lung nodules are cancerous or benign. Check it out!
OncoPlex DX is based in Rockville, MD and has tests for biomarkers for lung, breast, and colorectal cancers. Their website is here.
I LOVE seeing proteomics moving toward the clinic. So many good people are out there using global screens to find biomarkers and here are people using those biomarkers to benefit patients?
