Proteome Sciences partners with the BioCapture Network in this interdisciplinary project we will design high affinity responsive molecular capture materials targeting tumor specific markers. Molecularly imprinted polymers or “plastic antibodies” and other smart materials will be developed and used to detect and sense previously inaccessible tumor markers or to discover novel disease biomarkers.
Notice of a General Meeting of Proteome Sciences Plc, to be held at the offices of finnCap, 60 New Broad Street, London, EC2M 1JJ at 10 a.m. on 29 November 2016.

“This study clearly demonstrates the potential of combined tissue and fluid proteomics to discover and validate low abundant, tissue-derived biomarkers in peripheral fluids, which in this case resulted in the widest coverage of both tau and phosphorylated tau in human cerebrospinal fluid.
We have been developing several drugs that modulate the phosphorylation of the aggregating protein tau in Alzheimer’s disease by inhibiting the protein casein kinase 1 delta. We have tested them in a model of human tauopathy (aggregating tau diseases) and analyzed brain tissue with SysQuant® to determine the drug’s mechanism of action.
Revenues in the first half are significantly ahead of the equivalent period in 2015 driven principally by strong sales of our TMT® reagents.
