ST. CHARLES, Mo., June 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Eurofins Discovery, the leading brand with over 35 years of success providing a complete solution of products and services for drug discovery, announces a client publication advancing cognitive health research through use of the company's BioMAP® Human Phenotypic Profiling and Screening Platform and enzyme assays for neurotransmitter degradation.
Published in BMC Complementary Medicine and Therapies, the work of scientists from The Institute for Biomedical and Bioscience Research, University of Buckingham; the European Genomic Institute for Diabetes, Hospital Claude Huriez; and Sibelius Ltd., identifies changes in biomarkers of inflammation and tissue remodeling that result from the use of sage extract on in vitro, human primary cell translational disease models.
The work documents applicability of the BioMAP Platform beyond standard biopharmaceutical applications and demonstrates the portfolio breadth of Eurofins Discovery in providing testing for life enzyme assays and biomarker screening and profiling services in the neuro-inflammatory and neurodegenerative therapeutic space.
One of the challenges to evaluating potential nutritional interventions for neurodegeneration and other therapeutic areas is assessment of relevant biomarkers in standardized clinically validated in vitro disease models sensitive enough to detect changes in mixtures as well as purified drug candidates. The BioMAP Diversity PLUS® Panel can provide this key assessment while covering a broad range of tissue and disease biology. The panel reports on biomarkers common across many diseases that involve inflammation, is validated with clinically approved drugs, and provides results based on advanced data analytics powered by a comprehensive Reference Database.
Additional neurotransmitter metabolism enzyme assays from Eurofins Discovery helped identify specific effects of sage extract, with implications for cognitive performance. Learn more about the Phenotypic Center of Excellence at www.eurofinsdiscoveryservices.com/services/phenotypic-assays.
