Short Course to Highlight Intracellular Cytokine Detection Assay in Adoptive Cell
Therapy Trials and Poster to Highlight Metaproteomic Analysis of Gut Microbiome in
MONTREAL, Feb. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Caprion Biosciences Inc. announced today that Dr. Yoav Peretz, Scientific Director of ImmuneCarta will lead a short course on novel techniques in development of Intracellular cytokine detection assays in adoptive cell therapy trials at the annual Molecular Medicine Triconference held in San Francisco, CA. The course will focus on providing guidance on detection, persistence, and phenotypic characterization of pentamer CD8+ T cells in adoptive cell immunotherapy trials.
Caprion will also have a poster presentation which features an exploratory discovery study on metaproteomic analysis of infant fecal microbiome. The goal of the study was to extract gut microbiome taxonomy and functional data in a population of infant fecal samples. The results demonstrate a proteomics approach provides functional changes and responses with significantly greater coverage of bacterial genera than the pyrosequencing approach. Pathway analysis also underlines the differences between individual microbiomes and provides insights into their functional responses to diet, disease and therapy.
