PromarkerD is a proteomics derived test for predicting diabetic kidney disease that measures the concentrations of three plasma protein biomarkers, APOA4, CD5L and IBP3. Antibodies against these proteins were developed and applied to a multiplexed immunoaffinity capture mass spectrometry assay. In parallel, and facilitating current clinical laboratory workflows, a standard ELISA was also developed to measure each protein. The performance characteristics of the two technology platforms were compared using a cohort of 100 samples, with PromarkerD test scores demonstrating a high correlation (R = 0.97). These technologies illustrate the potential for large scale, high throughput clinical applications of proteomics now and into the future.
