Patent
Prometheus Laboratories | Date: 2012-04-06

The present invention provides assays for detecting and measuring the presence or level of anti-TNF drug therapeutics and autoantibodies in a sample. The present invention is useful for optimizing therapy and monitoring patients receiving anti-TNF drug therapeutics to detect the presence or level of autoantibodies (e.g., HACA and/or HAHA) against the drug.


Patent
Prometheus Laboratories | Date: 2012-02-03

The present invention provides methods for selecting a suitable anticancer drug therapy, and for identifying and predicting response, for the treatment of colorectal cancer. The present invention also provides methods for monitoring the status of colorectal cancer and monitoring how a patient with colorectal cancer is responding to anticancer drug therapy.

The invention provides novel biomarkers, kits, and methods of diagnosing, prognosing, and subtyping IBS. Also provided are methods for aiding in the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome by detecting the serum level of novel IBS biomarkers identified herein.


The present invention provides methods for selecting a suitable anticancer therapy and for identifying and predicting response for the treatment of a gastric cancer by determining the expression level and/or activation level of one or more analytes in a cell such as a cancer cell from an ascites sample. The present invention also provides methods for selecting a suitable anticancer therapy and for identifying and predicting response for the treatment of a lung cancer such as a non-small cell lung cancer by determining the expression level and/or activation level of one or more analytes in a cell such as a cancer cell from a pleural efflux sample.


Patent
Prometheus Laboratories | Date: 2012-01-17

The invention provides an ELISA assay for the determination of serum mast cell -tryptase levels using rabbit anti-tryptase as the capture antibody and alkaline phosphatase conjugated G3 as the detecting antibody. Luminescent substrate CPSD was used to enhance the assay sensitivity. Also provided are methods for aiding in the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome by detecting the serum level of -tryptase, histamine and/or prostaglandin E_(2).


Patent
Prometheus Laboratories | Date: 2012-12-10

The present invention provides methods for analyzing genetic and/or metabolite biomarkers to individualize methotrexate (MTX) therapy. For example, the assay methods of the present invention are useful for predicting whether a patient will respond to MTX and/or has a risk of developing toxicity to MTX based upon the genotype of one or more folate pathway genes. The assay methods of the present invention are also useful for optimizing the dose of MTX in a patient already receiving the drug to achieve therapeutic efficacy and/or reduce toxic side-effects based upon the genotype of one or more folate pathway genes. In addition, the assay methods of the present invention are useful for predicting or optimizing the therapeutic response to MTX in a patient based upon the methotrexate polyglutamate and/or folate polyglutamate levels in a sample from the patient.


Patent
Prometheus Laboratories | Date: 2011-02-09

The present invention provides methods for analyzing a combination of biomarkers to individualize tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy in patients who have been diagnosed with cancer. In particular, the assay methods of the present invention are useful for predicting, identifying, or monitoring the response of a tumor, tumor cell, or patient to treatment with a tyrosine kinase inhibitor using an algorithm based upon biomarker profiling. The assay methods of the present invention are also useful for predicting whether a patient has a risk of developing toxicity or resistance to treatment with a tyrosine kinase inhibitor. In addition, the assay methods of the present invention are useful for monitoring tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy in a patient receiving the drug to evaluate whether the patient will develop resistance to the drug. Furthermore, the assay methods of the present invention are useful for optimizing the dose of a tyrosine kinase inhibitor in a patient receiving the drug to achieve therapeutic efficacy and/or reduce toxic side-effects.


Patent
Prometheus Laboratories | Date: 2012-04-04

The present invention provides compositions and methods for detecting the activation states of components of signal transduction pathways in tumor cells. Information on the activation states of components of signal transduction pathways derived from use of the invention can be used for cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and in the design of cancer treatments.


Patent
Prometheus Laboratories | Date: 2012-01-30

The present invention provides antibody-based arrays for detecting the activation state and/or total amount of one or a plurality of oncogenic fusion proteins in a biological sample such as whole blood or tumor tissue and methods of use thereof. In certain instances, the activation state and/or total amount of oncogenic fusion protein(s) present in a sample can be measured in combination with one or a plurality of signal transduction molecules. The compositions and methods of the present invention have the advantages of specificity associated with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, sensitivity associated with signal amplification, and high-throughput multiplexing associated with microarrays.


Patent
Prometheus Laboratories | Date: 2011-09-21

The present invention provides novel citrullinated peptides, their use in methods for aiding, assisting, improving, or facilitating the diagnosis or prognosis of rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and methods for identifying novel citrullinated peptides that are immunoreactive with anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPAs). The present invention also provides methods for detecting rheumatoid factor (RF) using novel RF detection reagents as a means to aid, assist, improve, or facilitate the diagnosis or prognosis of rheumatic diseases such as RA. Kits comprising at least one of the novel citrullinated peptides and/or RF detection reagents of the present invention are also provided.
