The modular options within biomarker strategy at Aeirtec, incorporating (1) assay design, (2) measurement and (3) biostatistical analysis, enables Aeirtec to provide a streamlined activity encapsulating marker panel construction, assay conduct and data interpretation. Where studies have other indices in addition to soluble markers, such as expression, cell surface marker, pathological or physiological/clinical indices such as treatment response, a secondary level of bioinformatics can be conducted at Aeirtec to investigate the relationships between multiplexed assay data and these other indices derived within a study.
The power of symptom measurement in deriving information in clinical studies is greatly enhanced when those symptoms are combined or integrated into a 'symptom score'. Hence symptom scores are often used in clincial stuies as an index of treatment-related differences where examination of single symptoms in isolation provides highly variable data. Similarly, the power of soluble markers to reveal group differences is greatly enhanced when the data from a range of markers is integrated into a single 'integrated marker index'. This extends the power of multiplex measurement from being a far more efficient method for obtaining marker data to one of greater power derived from integration of the multiplexed marker data.
