ChondroGene Limited Company Profile

06:20 EST 22nd November 2017 | BioPortfolio

ChondroGene was formed in 1998 with the bringing together of its two key founders; Dr. K. Wayne Marshall, a noted orthopaedic surgeon and knee specialist and Dr. C.C. Liew, an internationally recognized leader in the area of tissue-specific functional genomics. Their respective expertise was combined to focus on developing new drugs and tests for osteoarthritis (OA), a chronic condition which affects the joints of millions of individuals worldwide, resulting in diminished quality of life for patients and severe economic burdens on healthcare systems.
The Company initially focussed on the use of functional genomics to characterize the molecular activity in tissues that make up the joints in the human body - cartilage, synovium and synovial fluid. The goal was to examine how the tissues of the joint function in different stages of osteoarthritis; from normal joints, to moderately diseased joints, all the way to severe osteoarthritis which could only be treated by total joint replacement. This work culminated in 2001 with the substantial completion of the identification and characterization of the chondrocyte genome (genes expressed in healthy and diseased human cartilage cells). The Company then produced the first known cDNA microarray specifically targeted at human cartilage gene expression, the ChondroChip™, an important platform tool that the Company is using to advance its research efforts in osteoarthritis. At the same time, the Company has applied the Sentinel Principle, a blood-based biomarker approach originally developed by Dr. Liew, to measure RNA expression in blood that can be used to detect and diagnose a variety of diseases and medical conditions throughout the body.
