Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is characterized by progressive airflow limitation and an inflammatory response in lungs.
The Spanish research group has developed a non-invasive, easily reproducible and specific technology of identifying circulating epithelial cells in peripheral blood
The use of liquid biopsy techniques to obtain epithelial cells, combined with immunological techniques for its detection, characterization and isolation, is useful for determining the patient's severity disease and for the early diagnosis of the disease.
The research group is looking for the following collaboration:
-License agreement: framework of authorizing the interested parts to use the technology.
-Technical cooperation agreement: to collaborate with other research teams, companies or foundations.
