The citation is:
Berggren, Per-olof, and Lisa Juntti-berggren. “Methods for treating and/or limiting development of diabetes.” U.S. Patent No. 20,170,037,118. 9 Feb. 2017.
In brief, the inventors disclose methods and compositions for limiting development of and/or treating diabetes, involving compounds of formula A-B, wherein A is a pancreatic β cell targeting moiety, and B is an inhibitor of expression and/or activity of Apolipoprotein CIII (apoCIII), protein kinase A (PKA), Src kinase, and/or β1 integrin. The patent states “…to evaluate the levels of apoCIII in sera, albumin is removed from serum samples using standard techniques, such as … AlbuSorb™ (Biotech Support Group)”. The inventors describe that ApoCIII can be identified using any suitable technique, including but not limited to MALDI mass spectrometry.
“This reference shows that while apoCIII is a hydrophobic protein and can often bind non-specifically, AlbuSorb™ can nevertheless be used in its analysis.” states Swapan Roy, Ph.D., President and Founder of Biotech Support Group.
