BladderCa Urine Test - EI-BLA: 2-gene biomarker panel for early detection of bladder cancer from urine

06.01.2014
The ECRG4 and ITIH5 (EI) gene promoter methylation has been identified as a novel objective biomarker panel for the diagnosis of bladder cancer (BLA) at an early stage (EI-BLA). This 2-gene panel detects bladder cancer with a specificity of 100% combined with a sensitivity of

84%. The biomarker panel is detectable in the urine sediment using standard analytical techniques (e. g. pyro-sequencing as a reliable and fast method to quantify CpG methylation). Due to the easy access to the samples the inventive method is cost-effective and convenient for the patients. Commercial Opportunities: Urinary bladder carcinoma is one of the most common cancers in human and the most expensive tumour in the US and Europe due to the need for lifelong surveillance. Cystoscopy, “the gold standard” for diagnostic evaluation of bladder cancer, is an invasive, time-consuming and cost-intensive method that is little accepted by the patients. Voided urine cytology as non-invasive method has been utilized as an additional diagnostic tool and screening test. However, the limitations of this method are found both in its comparative low sensitivity and its low objectiveness as it is dependent on the evaluation and experience of the observer. There has been great interest in identifying tumour biomarkers for a more sensitive and objective test, but the currently available, approved urine biomarkers cannot be fully recommended for clinical use.

EI-BLA, the inventive 2-gene biomarker panel is more specific than any of these detection systems and thus constitutes a promising new objective approach for early bladder cancer detection. Its strong diagnostic potential has been demonstrated in a larger cohort of urine samples from bladder cancer vs. healthy controls. A further screening trial using independent (multicenter) urine samples has been initiated.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Klima-Satellit: Mit robuster Lasertechnik Methan auf der Spur

Hitzewellen in der Arktis, längere Vegetationsperioden in Europa, schwere Überschwemmungen in Westafrika – mit Hilfe des deutsch-französischen Satelliten MERLIN wollen Wissenschaftler ab 2021 die Emissionen des Treibhausgases Methan auf der Erde erforschen. Möglich macht das ein neues robustes Lasersystem des Fraunhofer-Instituts für Lasertechnologie ILT in Aachen, das eine bisher unerreichte Messgenauigkeit erzielt.

Methan entsteht unter anderem bei Fäulnisprozessen. Es ist 25-mal wirksamer als das klimaschädliche Kohlendioxid, kommt in der Erdatmosphäre aber lange nicht...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
