Novel diagnostics and monitoring approach for immune-mediated diseases
Immune-mediated inflammatory diseases (IMID) include conditions with different aetiologies, characterised by common inflammatory pathways leading to inflammation and triggered by a dysregulation of the normal immune response. IMIDs are heterogeneous with regard to disease outcome and response to targeted therapies; predictive biomarkers are important for a precision medicine approach. Through the EU-funded ImmUniverse project, a transdisciplinary international consortium studies the role of crosstalk between tissue micro-environment and immune cells in disease progression and response to therapy of two IMIDs: ulcerative colitis and atopic dermatitis. The project will bring IMID diagnostics and treatment response monitoring to a new level by implementing non-invasive liquid-biopsy methodology combined with circulating biomarker assays.
