EpiSwitch technology selected as biomarker platform for COVID-19

Oxford BioDynamics’ EpiSwitch technology has been chosen as the biomarker platform for prognostic and predictive profiling of COVID-19 patients in the GETAFIX clinical study.Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation, University of Glasgow, and NHS Scotland are leading the effort to identify patients at risk of severe immune complications and those patients who can benefit from treatment with the anti-viral favipiravir.The EpiSwitch platform has already delivered prognostic and predictive biomarker developments and validations in collaboration with University of Glasgow Professors Iain McInnes and Carl Goodyear, as well as with EMD Serono, Pfizer, Genentech, Roche, Mayo Clinic and Massachusetts General Hospital.

These studies are part of nine crucial COVID-19 research projects at the University of Glasgow resulting from a rapid response call aimed at increasing the understanding of the coronavirus pandemic. The work will contribute to global efforts to combat the virus and its wider effects.

Oxford Biodynamics PLC (LON:OBD) was spun out from Oxford University in June 2007 with the aim of translating fundamental scientific advances into a commercialised platform technology and a new generation of biomarkers for cancer, ALS and other diseases.
