- Molecular Space Construction: NeoVentures Biotechnology’s Aptamarker platform leverages Aptamarker analysis to construct a molecular space, where individuals cluster based on unique biomolecular profiles. This space captures diversity in responses to diseases and allows for the nuanced exploration of different pathophysiological processes leading to the same phenotype.
- Integration of Clinical Variables: Aptamarkers offer flexibility by incorporating clinical variables like comorbidities, sex, and age into the molecular landscape. The intersection of clinical and molecular data provides a more holistic understanding of disease manifestations, revealing hidden patterns and associations.
- Scaffold for Patient Stratification: The Aptamarker platform transforms complex molecular information into simple qPCR tests, constructing a scaffold within the molecular characterization space. This scaffold facilitates patient stratification on a clinical level, expediting diagnosis and laying the groundwork for personalized treatment strategies based on individual molecular profiles.
In the dynamic realm of precision medicine, understanding the intricacies of individual responses to diseases is key to tailoring effective diagnostic and treatment strategies. NeoVentures Biotechnology’s Aptamarker platform emerges as a beacon in this journey, allowing the construction of a comprehensive molecular space that unravels the complex tapestry of individual pathophysiological processes. In this blog, we delve into the innovative potential of Aptamarkers in building a molecular characterization space and how it serves as the foundation for patient stratification, diagnosis, and treatment optimization.
Building the Molecular Space
The foundation of NeoVentures’ groundbreaking approach lies in leveraging the wealth of information extracted from the Aptamarker analysis across individuals. By assimilating this data, researchers can construct a molecular space where individuals cluster based on their unique biomolecular profiles. This space not only captures the diversity of responses to diseases but also forms the canvas upon which the nuances of different pathophysiological processes leading to the same phenotype can be painted.
Incorporating Clinical Variables into the Landscape
Beyond the molecular space, Aptamarkers provide the flexibility to integrate clinical variables such as comorbidities, sex, and age. This augmentation enriches the overall information space, allowing researchers to observe the impact of these variables on the molecular landscape. The intersection of clinical and molecular data unveils a more holistic understanding of disease manifestations and aids in the identification of patterns and associations that might otherwise remain hidden.
Constructing a Scaffold for Patient Stratification
One of the distinctive features of the Aptamarker platform is its capacity to transform complex molecular information into simple qPCR tests. This capability becomes instrumental in constructing a scaffold within the molecular characterization space, using a subset of Aptamarkers. This scaffold serves as a basis for patient stratification on a clinical level, facilitating streamlined diagnosis and treatment planning.
Efficiency in Positioning Future Individuals
While building the molecular characterization space requires considerable effort, its lasting impact is reflected in the efficiency with which future individuals can be positioned within it. The use of a qPCR test with a minimal number of Aptamarkers allows for quick and precise placement within the established molecular landscape. This not only expedites the diagnostic process but also lays the groundwork for personalized treatment strategies tailored to each patient’s unique molecular profile.

The different colors within the graph represent various aspects of clinical variables such as age or different outcomes from a common disease. This visualization provides a snapshot of the complexity and diversity within the molecular landscape, showcasing the potential for nuanced patient stratification.
Pioneering Precision Medicine with Aptamarkers
NeoVentures Biotechnology’s Aptamarker platform stands at the forefront of pioneering precision medicine. By constructing a molecular characterization space that integrates Aptamarker data with clinical variables, we unlock a new dimension of understanding in disease biology. This comprehensive approach not only advances our grasp of pathophysiological processes but also empowers clinicians with the tools to navigate this intricate landscape for precise patient stratification, diagnosis, and treatment optimization. As we journey further into the era of Aptamarkers, the potential for personalized and effective healthcare solutions becomes an exciting reality.
Dr. Gregory Penner academic training was a blend of very practical plant breeding theory combined with molecular biology. He has used this blend of biology and mathematics to first develop and lead a cereal biotechnology research team with the government of Canada and subsequently as a global research leader with Monsanto Inc. He has been a thought leader in aptamer development globally for the last twenty years as CEO and President of NeoVentures. He has led this company to financial stability without outside investment with an integrated approach to aptamer discovery and commercialization. In 2015, he co- founded a second company, NeoNeuro in Paris France, focused on an innovative approach to identify Aptamarkers for complex diseases.
