Auto-Immune Diseases and the CLEC16A Gene

This project will demonstrate the uniqueness of the CLEC16A gene, in that it plays a causative role in multiple auto-immune related diseases:

  • Diabetes
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Arthritis
  • Inflamatory Bowel Syndrome
  • Parkinson's
  • Common Immune Deficiency
  • Asthma
  • Crone's Disease
  • Colitis
  • Psoriasis

Project Progress

  • We have a deeply characterized knockout mouse
  • We have established cellular assays
  • We have intellectual property protection
  • We understand the mechanistic function of the gene product
  • We have identified multiple compounds for protein modulation
  • We are now preparing our clinical trials submission for Q1, 2018
