Accurate treatment selection in metastatic prostate patients is crucial to control cancer spread and to minimize patient symptoms and drug side effects. The lab of prof. Ost at Ghent University Hospital was interested in developing a minimally invasive, blood-based test to select the correct treatment strategy. To this end, Biogazelle performed a miRNA biomarker discovery study on serum samples using its small RNA sequencing workflow optimized for body fluids.
"Biogazelle has offered a complete project management pipeline for biomarker discovery and validation with frequent go / no-go decisions. In addition, they offer advanced data-analysis envisaging clinical applications of the discovered biomarkers. A transparent communication allowed for easy follow-up of the project"
