After two succeeded registrations of clinical studies at ClinicalTrial.gov, Ardigen finalized this process with next observational study: Microbiome Polish Map, NCT04169867. Ardigen, in cooperation with The Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences in Poznan, is building a unique set of scientific processed information describing the variability of the polish population microbiome.
A reliable dataset, which consists of 1000 healthy volunteers and 160 patients with melanoma treated with routine immunotherapy (anti-PD1, anti-PDL1 and/or anti CTLA4 antibodies), will characterize the gut microbiome diversity in the polish population. The collection of stool samples will be performed for each donor with information about eating habits and health survey. Samples will be sequenced by next-generation sequencing platform (Shotgun Metagenomics Sequencing).
The project is funded by Małopolskie Centre of Entrepreneurship (POIR.04.01.02-00-0025/17).
ClinicalTrials.gov is a resource which provides the public with easy access to information about clinical studies on a wide range of diseases and conditions conducted on human volunteers. This database is maintained by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in USA.
