Novel biomarkers in gastric cancer

The word "cancer" groups a series of diseases of different origin and different prognosis, with differentiated molecular mechanisms causing their onset and progression. Hence, discovery of novel biomarkers for each type of cancer, allowing to understand their underlying mechanisms and provide a specific (or even personalised) treatment is a fast-moving area of research.

Don't drown while fishing for biomarkers!

Research on biomarkers is not always easy. Getting the clinical samples or the samples from animal models requires a big deal of coordination. Choosing the right tool to unravel the molecular mechanisms behind a disease or its response to treatment is another stone on the way. And then… interpreting the results can be time-consuming too.

In addition to our large services offer, we realised that we needed to offer also a good tool for data interpretation, especially when big profiling projects were performed. After some months, we are very happy to announce that we have reached an strategic agreement with Anaxomics, a company, expert in Systems Biology and big data manipulation and interpretation.

Tumour microenvironment (TME) - exosomes

TME is composed on myofibroblasts, extracellular matrix and many other cell types. The tumour communicates with its microenvironment through cytokines, growth factors, chemokines, miRNAs, etc, as previously seen. Exosomes are nanosized extracellular vesicles that allow communication between cells. They seem to play a role in the progression of some cancers (e.g. prostate cancer, glioblastoma), as well as in resistance to cancer therapies. In fact, they modulate the immune response, explaining their role in either fighting the tumour or helping the tumour cells evade the immune system" [Read more...]

WB & ELISAs using mAb-treated samples

"Biologicals are increasingly being used in therapy, helping to cure thousands of patients, or at least improving their quality of life. Research continues to move forward in this area, as proved by 7 400 citations in 2014 only when using "biologicals" as a search term, or about 200 citations when using "therapeutic mAb". Many research groups, especially those working on Oncology, continue to investigate on the mechanism of action of biologicals, specially mAbs, as well as on any possible resistances found in non-responsive patients" [Read more...]
