Quantitative Profiling of the Intrinsic Pathway of Apoptosis in Tumor Tissue Using Myriad RBM’s Multiplex ApoptosisMAP™, a New Biomarker Webinar by Xtalks
Xtalks presents an exciting live webinar on Friday, November 22, 2013 at 10:30am EST describing the development and validation of a multiplex panel of biomarkers for quantifying the commitment, onset, and induction of apoptosis by the intrinsic pathway in tumor tissue samples.

Regulators of apoptotic cell death are potentially valuable targets for oncology and autoimmune disease. Several promising mechanism-based compounds that directly target the molecular components of apoptosis pathways are in clinical development. It is well known that inhibition of apoptosis occurs in most cancers and can occur by a variety of methods such up regulation of anti-apoptotic factors. Until now, profiling the key components of apoptosis has been limited by the laborious and semi-quantitative method of IP-western blot which is not amenable to multiplexing and is ill suited for clinical studies from limited sample amounts.
The ApoptosisMAP is a fully validated quantitative multiplex immunoassay that can quantify apoptotic biomarkers in clinical trials. It can support the pharmacodynamic action of investigational agents with companion diagnostic implications for identifying patients most likely to respond to a particular apoptosis inducer or other chemotherapeutic regimes. Join Dominic Eisinger, PhD, Director of Strategic Development, from Myriad RBM for this discussion on quantitative profiling using Myriad RBM’s Multi-Analyte Profile (MAP) platform.
