Patent
SomaLogic | Date: 2017-01-19

The present disclosure describes improved SELEX methods for producing aptamers that are capable of binding to target molecules and improved photoSELEX methods for producing photoreactive aptamers that are capable of both binding and covalently crosslinking to target molecules. Specifically, the present disclosure describes methods for producing aptamers and photoaptamers having slower dissociation rate constants than are obtained using prior SELEX and photoSELEX methods. The disclosure further describes aptamers and photoaptamers having slower dissociation rate constants than those obtained using prior methods. In addition, the disclosure describes aptamer constructs that include a variety of functionalities, including a cleavable element, a detection element, and a capture or immobilization element.

Methods and computer methods used to assess an individual for the prediction of risk of developing a Cardiovascular (CV) Event over a 1 to 5 year period are provided. The methods employ at least two biomarkers selected from MMP12, angiopoietin-2, complement C7, cardiac troponin I, angiopoietin-related protein 4, CCL18/PARC, alpha-1-antichymotrypsin complex, GDFl1 and alpha-2-antiplasmin, or GDF11 in combination with FSTL3. The methods are particularly useful in predicting CV events in patients who suffer from coronary heart disease (CHD).


Methods, compositions, and kits for determining whether a subject has non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are provided. Methods, compositions, and kits for determining whether a subject has non-alcoholic steatosis are also provided. Methods, compositions, and kits for determining whether a subject has non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) are also provided.


Patent
SomaLogic | Date: 2016-12-28

Described herein are compositions and methods for detecting the presence or absence of a microorganism in a sample comprising contacting the sample with an aptamer capable of binding to a cell-surface protein of the microorganism to form a complex, contacting the mixture with a second aptamer capable of binding to the first cell-surface protein or a second cell-surface protein of the microorganism; and performing an assay to detect the second aptamer, wherein detecting the second aptamer indicates that the microorganism is present in the sample, and wherein not detecting the second aptamer indicates that the microorganism is absent from the sample.


Patent
Merck Patent GmbH and SomaLogic | Date: 2015-02-20

The present invention relates to a method of detecting a microorganism, in particular Staphylococcus aureus, in a sample, comprising the steps of a) incubating the sample with a slow off-rate modified aptamer (SOMAmer) comprising a fluorescent label, b) optionally washing the sample, c) analyzing the sample by a fluorescence-based detection method. The invention further relates to a slow off-rate modified aptamer comprising a fluorescent label, wherein the SOMAmer comprises a nucleotide sequence specific for Staphylococcus aureus, its use for detecting Staphylococcus aureus cells in a sample, and to a microarray or biosensor and a kit comprising at least one of such SOMAmers comprising a fluorescent label.


Patent
SomaLogic | Date: 2017-03-09

The present disclosure describes methods, devices, reagents, and kits for the detection of one or more target molecules that may be present in a test sample. The described methods, devices, kits, and reagents facilitate the detection and quantification of a non-nucleic acid target (e.g., a protein target) in a test sample by detecting and quantifying a nucleic acid (i.e., an aptamer) where the aptamer-aptamer interactions are significantly reduced or eliminated while maintaining the aptamer-target interaction.


Described herein are aptamers capable of binding to human complement component 3 (C3) protein; compositions comprising a C3 binding aptamer with a C3-Protein; and methods of making and using the same.
