  4. Development of a Clinical Screening Platform for Type Diabetes

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIDDK

    Abstract A major shortfall in clinical care for diabetes is a rapid and accurate screen for progression to disease Current criteria involve HLA haplotype and the presence of auto antibodies AA Genome wide associated studies GWAS revealed only immune associated genes including HLA as T D predictors The ability to differentiate from other diseases was very limited Pre type diabetes p T ...

  7. Screening for the autoimmune component of multiple sclerosis

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIAID

    Multiple Sclerosis is an inflammatory neurodegenerative disease with autoimmune components that exacerbate and potentially initiate the disease Diagnosis is invasive time consuming relatively expensive and extremely difficult In fact no clear diagnostic test yet exist A major concern is that MS symptoms are identical to the symptoms of numerous other neurologic diseases OND as well as some ...

  8. Developing a small peptide to control autoimmune inflammation in type diabetes

    SBC: Op-T-Mune, Inc            Topic: NIAID

    Abstract Type Diabetes T D affects an ever growing population While this disease typically has been associated with juveniles the disease in adult populations is rapidly increasing The defining clinical component is insulin loss which occurs because of sustained inflammation in the islets At present there is no means to prevent or reverse insulin loss A major inflammatory pathway in T D ...
