La méthode microfluidique digitale à l’épreuve du dépistage des maladies de surcharge - JIM

Certaines maladies de surcharge peuvent bénéficier de traitements par enzymothérapie substitutive. C’est le cas notamment de la maladie de Pompe, de la maladie de Fabry, de la maladie de Gaucher et de la mucopolysaccharidose de type I. Le dépistage précoce de ces pathologies prend dès lors une importance toute particulière.

Une expérimentation de dépistage à la naissance de ces 4 maladies de surcharge a été menée récemment dans le Missouri. Depuis janvier 2013, tous les nouveau-nés sont testés selon une méthode innovante, dite « microfluidique digitale » qui permet de réaliser une analyse sur une quantité infime de sang. Au cours des 6 premiers mois de l’expérimentation, plus de 43 mille enfants ont ainsi été testés.

Next-Generation Sequencing for Disease Biomarkers | American Laboratory

Next-Generation Sequencing for Disease Biomarkers | American Laboratory | Medical biology science news | Scoop.it

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is beginning to provide powerful insights into genetic mutations and molecular networks underlying disease for a broad set of genes. NGS technologies promise to revolutionize a number of areas in clinical practice, including the validation and analysis of sequencing-based biomarkers, a tool increasingly relevant for diagnosis in multiple disease areas and for the selection and monitoring of therapeutic treatments. The recent emergence of positional sequencing is enabling access to better, more accurate sequence information. This article will overview the strength of this technology and future implications in the field of molecular biomarkers.
