Poster Presentation on CTMM Annual meeting
Dr. Wesseling, professor at the Department of Pathology of the Free University of Ansterdam, presented a poster during the annual meeting of the Center for Translational Molecular Medicine (CTMM). This meeting took place on September 29, in Utrecht. The poster summarizes Dr Wesseling's study, that can be seen as a starting point toward identification of clinically relevant biomarkers in rheumatoid arthritis. The study was performed by using kinase activity profiling with PamChip microarrays.

 

 

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory disease leading to destruction of the joints. It affects about 1% of the world’s population. Although better treatments are available, efforts to elucidation of the cause of the disease as well as finding new targets and treatments are very much needed.

Dr Wesseling concludes that the PamChip microarray could be used to identify kinases that may provide insight in the deregulated kinase signalling network and has potential as clinical relevant biomarkers.
