Checking genes to diagnose infectious and inflammatory diseases
Arriving at any diagnosis is a complex process that involves numerous tasks, from taking an appropriate history of symptoms to conducting laboratory tests. For patients with suspected infection or inflammation, a definitive diagnosis is not always reached. The EU-funded DIAMONDS project will develop a new diagnostic classification of infectious and inflammatory diseases. This new approach, which the project calls 'personalised molecular signature diagnosis' (PMSD), will be based on the discriminatory ability of a minimal set of genes able to distinguish all common conditions simultaneously. Specifically, the project will develop a device to detect genes required for PMSD. It will do so in partnership with 22 hospitals in 11 EU countries and biotechnology groups in academia, SMEs and industry.
