IVD Antibody & Immunoassay Development Services for SLE Biomarkers

With years of experience and expertise, Creative Biolabs is respected as a center of excellence in antibody and immunoassay development. We offer customized antibody and immunoassay development services targeting a large spectrum of biomarkers of multiple diseases. Here, we specifically introduce our services to support the design and development of your in vitro diagnostic (IVD) antibodies and immunoassays for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

Introduction to SLE

Biomarker and Antibody Development for SLE

SLE is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease affecting multi-organ systems. The cause of SLE is still not clear by current research and might cover genetics and environmental factors. Female sex hormones, vitamin D deficiency, smoking, sunlight, and certain infections, are also believed to increase the risk. Symptoms of SLE differ in people and may be mild to severe. Common symptoms include painful and swollen joints, fever, chest pain, hair loss, mouth ulcers, swollen lymph nodes, feeling tired, and a red rash which is most commonly on the face. Often there are periods of illness, called flares, and periods of remission during which there are few symptoms. Females tend to have a greater number of relapses, a low white blood cell count, more arthritis, Raynaud's phenomenon, and psychiatric symptoms. Males tend to have more seizures, kidney disease, serositis (inflammation of tissues lining the lungs and heart), skin problems, and peripheral neuropathy.

Diagnostic Tools of SLE

Diagnosis of SLE can be difficult and is based on a combination of symptoms, laboratory tests, serology, and histology of affected organs. Based on clinical manifestations, SLE can be classified into different subtypes, including acute cutaneous lupus, subcutaneous lupus erythematosus, and chronic cutaneous lupus. Laboratory tests involve the measurement of biomarkers whose alterations correlate with the pathogenesis and/or manifestations of SLE. These biomarkers can help improve the diagnostic accuracy because the clinical features that suspected patients present may resemble other diseases. Moreover, some biomarkers can be present in early disease, before the clinical symptoms manifest, making them important tools for early diagnosis of SLE. Given the rapid advance in the understanding of SLE pathogenesis and the development of new technologies, a number of SLE biomarkers have been accrued during the past few years. Diagnostic tests are needed to be developed accordingly. Immunodiagnostic tests that are based on the recognition between antigens and antigen-specific antibodies are widely used for disease diagnosis.
