Scientific Publications

Helping to advance the scientific understanding of some of the world’s most devastating diseases, Protagen’s research activities have resulted in a number of key peer-reviewed publications on autoimmune diseases and immuno-oncology.

Protagen is engaged in a number of research projects both independently and in collaboration with our partners across the globe, to help accelerate the development of precision diagnostics solutions.  Through this work, Protagen has contributed to a number of scientific papers and application notes on autoimmune diseases and immuno-oncology.
