Diagnostics for Diseases of Abnormal Protein Glycosylation
Tech ID: 20937 / UC Case 1999-001-0
Technology DescriptionTwo UC researchers have discovered a class of new analytes and new methods for using them, both are directed to in vitro diagnostic assays for diseases of abnormal protein glycosylation. This invention provides a technological base for a new line of diagnostic products to address this emerging area—the diagnosis and treatment of glycosylation abnormalities leading to peri- and post-natal disease, the widespread nature of which has recently become recognized.
- New market potential—a new line of in vitro diagnostic assays based on these analytes is possible.
- Versatile and amendable to various assay methodologies, including radioisotope, enzyme, and fluorescence based methodologies.
- State-of-the art and based on the results of research at frontiers of medicine.
