Proteome analysis: The core of current systems medicine

Based on a broad data basis, systems medicine deals with the complex processes and interrelationships in the human body and takes a comprehensive view of them. It combines different approaches and technologies and thus leads to extensive findings.

Early disease detection, individual treatment with targeted therapy

The early detection and precise determination of diseases is only possible with molecular biology. Proteome analysis based on diagnostic patterns is well advanced and is the core of current systems medicine. In the field of basic research, the proteome analysis is used to compare animal and human models, as well as to analyze them.

Protein analysis: Holistic representation of the state of health

Proteome analysis examines the proteins that play an important role as products of genes in the human body. The proteins contain the authentically encoded information. Their analysis enables the holistic representation of the state of health. In this way, diseases can be detected at an early stage and individually treated with a targeted therapy. The results of the treatment can also be mapped as accurately as the degree of the disease.

Proteome pattern: "Fingerprint" of systemic inflammatory diseases

The individual proteome pattern of a patient is comparable to a fingerprint. Within the framework of proteome analysis, this individual pattern is compared with the disease-specific patterns, which consist of a multitude of specific proteins. For the early detection of systemic-inflammatory diseases, mainly mid-stream urine is used as examination material.
