Risk Assessment of Effects at Nanoscale Level – Taking a Closer Look at the Mimotope Variation Analysis

Since January 2018 the EU-funded project PANBioRA is developing a modular system for a comprehensive risk assessment of biomaterials. The instrument will be able to compare different biomaterials and help doctors to choose the best suited material for a patient before implantation. Another function of the system is the risk assessment of new biomaterials, which might have unforeseeable interactions with the immune system. In this context, one important analysis that is part of PANBioRA’s approach is the Mimotope Variation Analysis that allows the assessment of patient-specific interactions between biomaterials and the immune system.
