Presentations from the >1,400 LIFT Study Lupus Cohort

LOS ANGELES, June 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- DxTerity, a patient-centric genomics company developing at-home RNA monitoring

blood tests for immune-mediated diseases, today announced that data from the LIFT (Lupus Interval Monitoring to Manage Disease Flare and Enable Treatment Optimization) study will be presented at the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) meeting held June 13-16, 2018 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The LIFT study evaluated interferon gene expression levels in participants with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) using the patented DxCollect® Fingerstick Collection Kit that stabilizes RNA at ambient temperature with self-collected blood samples.

"We are committed to developing tools for rheumatologists to improve lupus disease management," said Bob Terbrueggen, PhD, CEO and founder, DxTerity. "From-home access to patients with lupus and regular monitoring for biological changes may provide real-world insights into how to personalize care."

DxTerity's LIFT study presentations at EULAR are as follows. The EULAR abstracts can be found online at http://www.congress.eular.org/.
