NOVEMBER 08, 2017
Vienna, Austria: – Innovative biotech company TAmiRNA will present its latest insights on new applications of circulating microRNAs in cardiology at the upcoming LABMED Forum, part of the MEDICA pharma fair in Düsseldorf, Germany.
TAmiRNA CEO Dr. Matthias Hackl will talk about “Development of miRNA for cardiovascular diagnostics” during the session: ‘Cardiology – More safety with myocardial infarction and heart insufficiency’, which will take place on the afternoon of day two of the event (Tuesday, November 14, 14:40 – 15:00).
“We are looking forward to meeting biotech and pharma companies participating in clinical studies in cardiovascular disease, academic and clinical research groups at the conference,” said Dr. Hackl.
“In my address and in face to face meetings, I will be able to show the huge potential for personalized monitoring of anti-platelet therapy, and the assessment of bleeding-risk due to impaired platelet activation,” Dr. Hackl explained.
Early diagnosis and retrospective analysis
“We can also offer solutions for risk assessment of adverse cardiovascular events and metabolic diseases,” he added.
“Crucially circulating microRNAs are pathway independent, and allow in vivo measurement of platelet function, making retrospective analysis possible, ” said Dr. Hackl.
“We are looking forward to this valuable opportunity to connect with a highly expert and influential audience of cardiologists and scientists participating in clinical studies ad academia and at clinical research groups,” said Dr. Hackl.
Privately owned and headquartered in Vienna, TAmiRNA GmbH is a biotech company specialized in the identification and validation of non-coding RNAs as biomarkers for age-related diseases. The mission of TAmiRNA is to provide clinically useful biomarkers to improve and prolong patient stability, health and quality of life with increasing age.
TAmiRNA specializes in technologies for profiling levels of blood-circulating microRNAs and developing multi-parametric classification algorithms (“signatures”). TAmiRNA uses these technologies to develop minimal-invasive diagnostic tests for early diagnosis and prognosis of disease, or as companion diagnostic tests to support treatment decisions.
TAmiRNA’s pipeline includes developments in osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, and cancer, which aim to provide ‘microRNA kit’ solutions that enable users to quantify the levels of specific microRNA combinations and platelet function in serum, plasma, urine or other biofluids. The company initially developed kits for bone disease (osteomiR) and cardiovascular disease (thrombomiR).
TAmiRNA also offers contract research services for companies in need of targeted biomarker development. Customers include biopharma companies with drug development programs in human and veterinary medicine, medtech companies and clinical research groups.
