The PROOF Centre has biomarker programs to develop simple blood tests for transplant patients and patients with chronic organ disease. The PROOF Centre uses the Biomarker Development Pipeline below to ensure the success of Biomarker Programs underway in heart, lung and kidney failure as well as heart and kidney transplantation.
The Biomarker in Transplantation (BiT) program is furthest along. Transplant tests from this program will soon be tested for clinical effectiveness. The BiT program serves as a model for other PROOF Centre biomarker initiatives, most of which are in the final stages of biomarker development.
