Mahesh Shah, ProteinLogic Ltd,
ProteinLogic is a biomarker discovery and exploitation company developing a novel diagnostic platform and diagnostic products that address key unmet medical needs in infection and inflammatory diseases. The Company has developed a proprietary biomarker technology (ImmiPrint®) with potential to diagnose and predict early onset of diseases, and to provide information as to how a disease is likely to develop and respond to particular drug treatments. The technology is based upon the profiling of a discrete subset of immune system proteins found in the blood and other body fluids.
In addition to the TB diagnostic test there are a number of potential follow-on products in the Company’s pipeline.
