Case Study – A Blood-based Biomarker Panel For Non-invasive Diagnosis Of Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis: A Multi-centre Prospective And Validation Study

A late-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to metabolic and chronic liver diseases is developing an in vitro diagnostic (IVD) test for NASH at-risk patients. The test integrates four independent biomarkers – miR-34a-5p, A2M, YKL-40, and HbA1c. The output is a 0-10 score with threshold values, identifying patients with low risk or high risk of developing NASH.

The main objective of this study is to evaluate the physiological stability of these biomarkers between the fed and fasting state in patients with the target condition (NAFLD) over a 30-day period.

Webinar – In Light Of NASH: Liver Biopsy Optimization Webinar

Liver biopsies are the gold standard for Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis diagnosis and thus essential to NASH clinical trials, yet obtaining them is invasive, can be painful and comes with risk of complications. Making optimal use of these valuable samples is therefore critical.

In this webinar, our experts will highlight possible ways to get the most out of liver biopsies and moreover, provide an overview of alternative methodologies.

The presenters will discuss available stainings of liver biopsies for diagnosing NASH, how alternative and innovative imaging can facilitate pathologists’ reading of the samples and how the placebo effect can impact study results. Together, they will lead the discussion on how to determine the best process for trials and boost the optimal use of liver biopsies for studies.

Speakers

Fanny Estermann, PhD, Biomarker Study Team Leader, Cerba Research Montpellier

Fanny Estermann holds a PhD in Biology. She conducted successfully her work on oncolytic viruses at Salk Institute for Biological Studies (La Jolla, CA, USA), paving the way for a new type of targeted cancer therapy. As a specialist in cancer research, she then worked on senescence, cancer and metabolism at the Cancer Institute of Montpellier (ICM, France). She focused her work on metabolism dysfunctions and its consequences in the global health and cancers. She then joined the Montpellier’s University Hospital center (IRMB, France) to develop cutting-edge stem cell, cancer and senescence techniques. After gathering extensive experience in cancer research, stem cells and metabolism, she received a degree in Clinical Trials from the University of Medicine of Montpellier before joining Cerba Research, as Biomarker Study Team Leader and Regional Head of Project Management. Her main goal with her team is to deliver high quality results to clients by designing and conducting custom scientific projects to fit clients’ needs in preclinical and clinical trials. She has been closely involved in the management and development of Cerba Research biopsy processing and new stainings. She is a direct interlocutor of many NASH KOL.

Manon Motte, Head of Image Analysis, Cerba Research Montpellier

Graduated as Master in Skin Biology at the University of Lyon, Manon worked for more than 7 years in the pharmaceutical industry in a Morphology Histologic team (R&D department) for Dermatological projects. She has a strong experience in the implementation of transverse Histology/Omics technology as well as in the validation of Image analysis applications (Pre-clinical and clinical Studies). Manon is also a specialist in histological techniques and related processes. Today, Manon has chosen to extend her experience in the histology and immunohistochemistry department of Cerba Research as an imaging manager and ensures compliance with GLP and ISO17025 standards in order to ensure maximum reliability in the results delivered to our customers. Manon leads the team advancing NASH associated imaging solutions to assist in the pathologist’s evaluation at Cerba Research. This development includes the evolution of digital pathology and software assisted analyses specific for NASH histological stains and their associated scores.

Pablo Ortiz, MD, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, OWL Metabolomics

Pablo Ortiz became MD by Universidad Autónoma of Madrid (1972-1978) where he also achieved his PhD (1984-1990, Cum Laude) and Postgraduate with Honors in the Autonomous of Barcelona University about “Biostatistics in Medicine” (1980-1981). Pablo Ortiz graduated as an MD from Universidad Autónoma in Madrid (‘72-’78), after which he continued to a Postgraduate with Honors in Biostatistics in Medicine at the Barcelona University (‘80-’81). He also holds a PhD in Biostatistics in Medicine, obtained from Universidad Autónoma.
Pablo has extensive training in managing R&D projects and clinical trials, and over 25 years of experience (1979-2004) within the Medical Department of Boehringer Ingelheim.

Brochure – Cerba Research’s Multi-Omics Approaches In Hematological Malignancies

Hematological malignancies originate from the uncontrolled growth of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues. These biologically and clinically heterogeneous disorders account for 6.5% of all cancers worldwide, and for approximately 9.5% of newly diagnosed cancers every year.

Due to the high level of heterogeneity in cytogenetic, genetic, epigenetic, transcriptional, post-transcriptional, and metabolic alterations of hematological diseases, integrated multi-omics analyses are needed to improve clinical outcomes.

At Cerba Research, we aim to bring a multi-modal approach to precision medicine to disease. From discovery to clinical development, we provide world-class teams and capabilities worldwide to help you in your quest for novel treatment against hematological malignancies.

Webinar – Conducting Clinical Trials During COVID-19: Lessons For The Next Pandemic

The coronavirus is not the first infectious disease that has forced clinical trials to adapt. Zika, Ebola and other diseases called for the world to adjust and collaborate global research efforts. With COVID-19, the rapid spread and impact on global healthcare systems forced us to change our trial management and accelerate our processes like never before. The global research community have already discovered and developed several tests and vaccines in record time through collaboration. Yet we are still working on predictive biomarker testing to identify people who are at the most risk of developing severe symptoms, epidemiological, vaccine and genetic studies.

To facilitate testing, research, and innovation and to ensure trials continued, Cerba Research and Cerba Healthcare adapted our capabilities and facilities to push research continuity.

Watch this webinar and discover the answers to these questions:

  • Did we succeed, how fast did we adapt and are we ready to face a new pandemic crisis in the future?
  • How did we maintain the high security and confidence of testing, and what did our reactivity and proactivity mean in the context of a health crisis?
