Genalyte Awarded $500,000 SBIR Grant To Develop Multiplexed Assays For Early Detection And Monitoring Of Type 1 Diabetes
Date:12/11/2012

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Genalyte, Inc. today announced that it has been awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to develop multiplexed diagnostic assays for the early detection and monitoring of Type 1 diabetes that will run on Genalyte's innovative MaverickTMDetection System.  The $500,000 grant is from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) of the National Institutes of Health.  Genalyte's novel multiplexing technology simultaneously screens for the detection of multiple autoantibodies and other proteins using a one-step, 15-minute process. 

The SBIR-funded program initially will create a basic multiplexed assay to detect autoimmune response for known targets for Type 1 diabetes.  It will then expand the approach to profile autoantibody response by multiple criteria, which is expected to enhance the ability of researchers and clinicians to detect and monitor the development of the disease.

"The pioneering work of the late Dr. Eisenbarth and others established that the development of Type 1 diabetes is an incremental process, as rogue elements of the immune system over time compromise and eventually destroy the pancreatic islet cells that produce insulin," noted Martin Gleeson, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of Genalyte.  "The unique capabilities of our Maverick multiplexed detection platform have the potential to provide researchers and clinicians with the tools to detect and track this process from a very early stage, when therapeutic intervention to interrupt the process could be feasible."

Once the autoantibody panels have been developed and tested, they will be refined and validated using samples from patients with Type 1 diabetes.  Genalyte expects to collaborate on this phase of the project with researchers from Dr. Eisenbarth's laboratory at the Barbara Davis Di
