AlloSure for the Monitoring of Antibody Mediated Processes After Kidney Transplantation

2019-08-17 19:30:39 | BioPortfolio


This is a prospective cohort observational study to assess the role of AlloSure Donor Derived Cell Free DNA (ddcfDNA) assay in the monitoring of three high-risk groups of patients for antibody mediated processes. The AlloSure assay will be combined with the AlloMAP assay (PAXgene blood sample); which is the first in history FDA-cleared genomic solid organ transplantation rejection blood test (AlloMap). Additionally, inflammatory cytokines will be determined. The combination of the three assays will provide a comprehensive molecular diagnostic and prognostic approach to antibody-mediated processes after renal transplantation.

AlloMap Kidney is a lab-developed test and will be provided by CareDx, Inc. located at Brisbane, CA, and is designed, manufactured and used within a single CareDx laboratory. AlloMap Kidney is currently provided as "For Research use only" test and results are not intended for clinical diagnosis or patient management for "KidneyCare", which is the AlloSure-Kidney and AlloMap-Kidney tests combined.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A screening assay for circulating COMPLEMENT PROTEINS. Diluted SERUM samples are added to antibody-coated ERYTHROCYTES and the percentage of cell lysis is measured. The values are expressed by the so called CH50, in HEMOLYTIC COMPLEMENT units per milliliter, which is the dilution of serum required to lyse 50 percent of the erythrocytes in the assay.

Sensitive assay using radiolabeled ANTIGENS to detect specific ANTIBODIES in SERUM. The antigens are allowed to react with the serum and then precipitated using a special reagent such as PROTEIN A sepharose beads. The bound radiolabeled immunoprecipitate is then commonly analyzed by gel electrophoresis. Radioimmunoprecipitation assay (RIPA) is often used as a confirmatory test for diagnosing the presence of HIV ANTIBODIES.

Rapid methods of measuring the effects of an agent in a biological or chemical assay. The assay usually involves some form of automation or a way to conduct multiple assays at the same time using sample arrays.

The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is an alternative method for the identification of chemicals that have the ability to cause skin sensitization and allergic contact dermatitis. Endpoints have been established so fewer animals are required and less painful procedures are used.

A genotoxicological technique for measuring DNA damage in an individual cell using single-cell gel electrophoresis. Cell DNA fragments assume a "comet with tail" formation on electrophoresis and are detected with an image analysis system. Alkaline assay conditions facilitate sensitive detection of single-strand damage.
