    MS Proteotyping of Human Cancers in Oncology Therapeutic Development 
    Our customer and collaborator, Dr. Dan Liebler, President of Protypia, Inc., will highlight his research on MS proteotyping of human Cancers in oncology therapeutic development using Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap™ technology.  New therapeutics targeting immune checkpoint proteins have significantly advanced treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but protein level quantitation of drug targets presents a critical problem. Dr. Liebler focuses on his use of multiplexed, targeted mass spectrometry (MS) to quantify immunotherapy target proteins PD-1, PD-L1, PD-L2, IDO1, LAG3, TIM3, ICOSLG, VISTA, GITR, and CD40 in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) NSCLC specimens. Global proteome analyses identified distinct proteotypes associated with high PD-L1-expressing and high IDO1-expressing NSCLC. Find out how MS quantification of multiple drug targets and tissue proteotypes can improve clinical evaluation of immunotherapies for NSCLC.

    Part 2: Thermo Scientific TraceFinder™ Software Overview and Implementation of a Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap™ Mass Spectrometer for the Identification and Quantitation of Synthetic Cannabinoids in Postmortem Forensic Investigations
    Synthetic cannabinoids continue to appear in forensic toxicology casework, and they represent a chemically diverse class of substances with particularly difficult behaviors to which high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) can provide great benefit. A quantitative confirmatory test was developed and validated for 5F-MDMB-PICA (the most prevalent synthetic cannabinoid identified in forensic casework) and its metabolites in human blood. A Thermo Scientific™ Q Exactive™ Hybrid Quadrupole-Orbitrap™ Mass Spectrometer was used for analysis. This interactive presentation will provide an overview of TraceFinder software along with a review of the performance characteristics to demonstrate the utility and accuracy of the developed assay.

    Thermo Scientific™ B•R•A•H•M•S PCT™ provides clinicians in the emergency department, intensive care unit and hospital wards with a sensitive, specific STAT biomarker that provides newly expanded insight to aid clinicians in making decisions regarding antibiotic therapy, as well as differential diagnosis of bacterial infection and sepsis....

  • PCT: an aid for risk assessment in COVID-19 secondary bacterial infections
    B·R·A·H·M·S PCT (Procalcitonin) is widely used to assess the risk of bacterial infection and progression to severe bacterial sepsis and septic shock in conjunction with other laboratory findings and clinical assessment. Further, the change of PCT over time is used to determine the mortality risk in patients with bacterial sepsis.

    In patients with suspected or confirmed lower respiratory tract infections (LRTI), including community acquired pneumonia (CAP), acute bronchitis and acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD), PCT is an aid in decision making on antibiotic therapy for inpatients or patients presenting in the emergency department (ED).

    Procalcitonin has now been shown, in evolving descriptive studies, to be an additional valuable tool in the current COVID-19 pandemic to early identify patients at low risk for bacterial coinfection and adverse outcome.[1-6,17] Learn more: thermofisher.com/pct-covid-19.
