Study – Helmholtz

Study - Helmholtz

A first study is being conducted with the Helmholtz Institute HIMAG, which includes patients from four German university hospitals multicentrically. The evaluation is still ongoing.

About the planned cooperation between the Helmholtz Institute and Lipocyte BioMed GmbH, the head of the institute writes as follows:

(Note: At the date of writing, the company was still operating under the name Lipozyte Marker GmbH).

This study shows a corroboration and expansion of the results of the UKE study. In particular, the extremely high “accuracy” of the results (= product of sensitivity and specificity) is confirmed (see also the explanations in the UKE study).

The results will be published.

 

We unlock the treasure trove of the adipose tissue

Subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT)

The subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) plays an important role in the genesis and modulation of metabolic diseases. It offers new opportunities for personalised medicine.

mRNAs are a key to personalised medicine

mRNAs (messenger RNAs)

mRNAs (messenger RNAs) convey genetic information in the body. They are highly involved in modulating metabolic processes, especially processes of the energy metabolism. Wit metabolic diseases they can be seen as drivers of pathology.

mRNAs – The drivers of pathology

Breaking new ground for
diagnostics, therapeutics and prevention

Diagnostics

mRNA-analysis of the SAT offers deep and completely new insights into the energy metabolism. Especially with metabolic diseases the current dynamics of the body and influences over life-time play a far greater role than genetic dispositions

Therapeutics

The key to successful treatment of metabolic diseases lies in the intervention with disease-causing on-going biological processes. As the mRNA of the SAT are to a great extent the drivers of pathology of these diseases, they offer a strong lever for therapy.

Prevention

A great advantage of mRNA-analysis of the subcutaneous adipose tissue lies in the very early detection of unhealthy developments of the metabolism long before any signs can be seen in blood-analysis or any symptoms become apparent. It is, therefore, a powerful component in preventive personalised medicine.
