Multiplex Immunoassay Reveals Serum Biomarkers of Kidney Disease

15 August 2018

IgA Nephropathy (IgAN) is the most common primary glomerulonephritis worldwide. In this presentation, David Wimbury, a Ph.D. student at University of Leicester, UK, describes a Luminex-based multiplexing immunoassay to investigate the relationship between levels of serum biomarkers associated with B and T cell activation and the development of IgAN. His research highlights the importance of controlling for renal function in serum biomarkers when studying associations between biomarkers and IgAN.
