T-cell proliferation & Cytokine analysis

Assessment of immune activation​

Alcyomics has a wide range of cell phenotypic services for your research needs, to benefit both drug discovery and validation. With our in-house state-of-the-art instrumentation, we can analyse and deliver accurate analyses of T-cell proliferation responses and perform multiplex cytokine analysis. This screening test can be used in conjunction with the Skimune® assay to determine adverse immune or allergic reactions to drugs and compounds in both the autologous and allogenic immune settings.

We have employed T-cell proliferation and multiplex cytokine analysis to successfully predict immune responses and assess mode of action of compounds.​

Our T-cell proliferation and multiplex cytokine assays provide a fast and high-throughput testing platform to help predict adverse immune responses to your development compounds at a competitive price.​

Benefits of T Cell Proliferation are:

High throughput, multiple compounds and multiple donor population studies
Matched donor/tissue testing
HLA testing available
Perfect screening assay for Skimune®

T-cell proliferation responses can provide valuable insight into how your compound is behaving when introduced to the human immune system. ​

T cell proliferation responses to sensitizers and non-sensitizers. Data are presented as stimulation index (SI) of T cell proliferation. Values represent the mean of data from a minimum of 3 independent tests.

Respiratory sensitizers, pre/pro haptens and sensitizers induced significant T cell proliferation and gave a SI value ≥ 3. Non-sensitizers gave a SI value ≤ 3 with the exception of phenol (SI = 3.09). Darted line indicates an SI value of 3.​
Multiplex cytokine analysis of cell culture supernatants can further confirm activation of the human immune system and give insight into the mode of action of your test compounds. Th1 & Th2 responses associated with cytotoxic, eg IFNƴ & TNF-α, or allergic responses, eg. IL-4 & IL-13, can be assessed using this platform​
Cell culture supernatants were analysed using a proinflammatory panel for IFN-ƴ , IL-10 , IL-12 , IL-13 , IL-1β , IL-2 , IL-4 , IL-6 and TNF-α.

Data shows mean log2 concentration (pg/ml) for positive control, negative assay controls (media + cells and autologous media only). ​
