IncellDx Files Patent for CCL5/RANTES Utility as a Diagnostic, Prognostic, and Therapeutic Biomarker in COVID-19 and Other Cytokine Storm Conditions
Excerpt from the press release:
“SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IncellDx announces the patent filing with the USPTO and the Pre-EUA with the FDA for CCL5/RANTES Utility as a Diagnostic, Prognostic, and Therapeutic Biomarker in COVID-19. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the causative agent of a novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is now a global pandemic. Growing information has demonstrated that a dysregulated and/or hyper-immune response causes a “cytokine storm” with massive increases in cytokines and chemokines which leads to infiltration of immune cells in multiple organs driving the significant co-morbidity and mortality in severe COVID-19. CCL5/RANTES is a chemokine that binds to the chemokine receptor CCR5. CCR5 is expressed on immune cells such as T-lymphocytes, macrophages, and NK cells. CCL5/RANTES acts like a magnet for these cells expressing CCR5. Thus CCL5/RANTES is a marker for the early stages of immune dysregulation in COVID-19 and as a possible therapeutic marker to determine when and how long therapy targeting CCR5 or RANTES should be continued. Other Cytokines included in the COVID-19 Cytokine Panel can be used to monitor other COVID-19 therapeutic approaches targeting other cytokines involved in the cytokine storm.”
