Subproject 1.6


Novel autoantibody tests for prostatitis diagnostics


The objectives of the sub-project are:
1) to characterise prostate-specific autoantibodies usable for the diagnosis and evaluation of the progression of chronic prostatitis, and
2) to develop HTP-immunoassay (immuno-chip) for determination of these autoantibodies in patients to diagnose the chronic prostatitis with liability for progression to gland failure.
