#WeKnowClinicalResearch

Clinical trials: "We combine scientific expertise with operational excellence!"

The focus of our clinical research is essentially on respiratory research, in particular on allergic rhinitis, asthma, COPD, and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).

Over the past five years, we have moved into other therapeutic areas as well, such as atopic dermatitis, inflammatory diseases, and also vaccine studies. We combine our scientific expertise with operational excellence in clinical trials.

Exhaled particles are very small and provide a fingerprint of the epithelial lining fluid. We have developed a technique by which we can determine the deposition of exhaled particles with every single breath. 

Exhaled particles are an intriguing method with broad potential for non-invasive monitoring of the lung.

Pulmonary fibrosis: "We are cutting edge in preclinical and clinical drug trials!"

The life expectancy of patients with untreated idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is three years.

We are focusing on translational and clinical research and have unique access to primary cells derived from patients with IPF or other types of pulmonary fibrosis. We test medical compounds and their effect on epithelial cell biology using our specialized in-vivo and in-vitro models.

Chip cytometry is based on the immobilization of cells on special object slides, referred to as chips. On these chips, cells can be analyzed with regard to morphology, expression of surface markers, and intracellular function.

Iterative staining protocols allow comprehensive immunological and functional characterization of cells
