Method for Analysis of Biomarkers Concentrated with Biomarker Attractants

Posted Apr 17 2013 8:00pm

Description of Invention:
Biological fluids are the repositories of vast number of molecules that are excreted or otherwise shed by cells. These molecules present in biological fluids reflect the physiological and pathological states of the cells that are in contact by the fluids or the cells from which these molecules are derived. A major goal of clinical diagnostics is to correlate the particular molecules (biomarkers) present in biological fluids with particular disease states.

The present invention relates to analysis of molecules present in biological fluids. Specifically, it discloses a diagnostic method for isolating/analyzing biomarker attractant molecules for the presence of bound fragments of cellular proteins that are known to correlate with particular biological states in specific anatomic or physiologic locations.
