  • Patent number: 11220541
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the use of the Chemokine (C—C motif) ligand 20 (CCL20) as a biomarker to stratify or identify populations of patients suffering from interleukin-23 (IL23)-mediated diseases (e.g., Crohn's disease) responsive to treatment with an, anti-IL23 antagonist (including, e.g., anti-IL23 antibodies). Levels of CCL20 above or below a predetermined threshold can be used, for example, (i) to determine whether a patient with an IL23-mediated disease or disorder such a Crohn's disease is eligible or non-eligible for treatment with a therapeutic agent, (ii) to determine whether treatment with a certain agent should be commenced, suspended, or modified, (iii) to diagnose whether the IL23-mediated disease is treatable or not treatable with a specific therapeutic agent, or (iv) to predict the outcome of treating the IL23-mediated disease with a specific therapeutic agent. CCL20 can be used in combination with other IL23 pathway biomarkers such as IL22 and/or lipocalin-2 (LCN2).

  • Patent number: 11077254
    Abstract: A smart plunger rod adapted to push a medication out of a syringe is disclosed. The plunger rod comprises a shaft sized and dimensioned to act on a piston on the syringe and a finger actuated head portion containing at least two subunits of a wireless sensor. In a pre-activation configuration, the subunits are spaced apart from each other by a physical barrier and the wireless sensor is non-operational. In a post-activation configuration, the subunits are connected to each other and the sensor is operational to send a signal. A user activates the finger actuated head portion to reversibly move the physical barrier and moves the plunger rod from the pre-activation configuration to the post-activation configuration. The signal sent by the sensor comprises information relating to ejecting the medication out of the syringe, and is received by a remote receiver.
