Cytokines are small, secreted signalling proteins, that act locally and systemically on a variety of cells. Cytokines regulate inflammation and the immune response. Due to their wide pro- and anti-inflammatory effects, cytokines have been implicated in most disease processes.
However, very low cytokine concentrations in plasma means that they are difficult to use as diagnostic tools.
Sangui Bio’s breakthrough discovery enables significantly more data to be obtained from a single blood sample and is already changing how clinical groups study biomarkers.
