• From protein biomarker discovery to precision medicine

    Precision medicine is defined by the NIH as “an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person”. Healthcare today, however,  still largely adheres to a one-size-fits-all approach, based on strategies that have been developed for the “average” person, with less consideration of individual differences. That inevitably leads to the questions of why these concepts have yet to be established in clinical practice and what is needed for it to happen?

    The role for protein biomarkers in precision medicine

    The move to more stratified medicine that delivers the right treatment to the right patient at the right time represents the next great movement for global healthcare, but also a colossal challenge for science. Protein biomarker strategies will be key to these developments, helping to us to better understand the biology of disease, to develop new, better and more targeted drugs, and to provide them to the right patients in a more stratified and effective manner. Olink’s vision is to help to drive the implementation of this vitally needed paradigm-shift in global healthcare by providing innovative  and effective tools for protein biomarker discovery and development.

    How can Olink help facilitate precision medicine?

    Today, Olink’s protein biomarker panels enable rapid, robust identification of protein signatures to:

    • stratify patients
    • predict disease and treatment outcomes
    • understand pathophysiology or discover new drug targets

    We call this “Precision Proteomics”.

    We are continuously developing our platform, offering a wider selection of biomarker assays to enable our customers to cast the net as wide as possible for the discovery of new protein signatures.

    Using protein signatures will likely transform the future of disease diagnosis, treatment, and our understanding of health. We will provide these powerful tools to translate protein biomarker discovery into the clinic. To tailor healthcare to individual patients, Olink aims to be your partner every step of the way on this journey, from precision proteomics to precision diagnostics and the realization of precision medicine.
