Saving Lives by Discovering the Unknown™

Searching for the Causes of Disease

      Aperiomics has amassed a considerable amount of data across multiple types of samples.  This gives us the power to start working on associating or dissociating specific pathogens to different disorders and symptoms. The data we work with is complicated and can be interconnected in a myriad of different ways, it’s a full-time job for our scientists trying to find patterns in the data. Working with many different collaborators, our goal is to try and find these patterns with a vision of someday providing more answers to the community at large. Aperiomics is a mission-driven company and we lead our projects with a mission of compassion, integrity, and innovative technology.

       While not a complete list of projects, we have displayed some of the varied topics our research projects look into. Most of these projects have collaborators across different universities and institutions. Others are projects our research team looks into personally. We don’t have a projected finish time as all of these projects take a considerable amount of time, but we are constantly pushing forward on them as we get more data and more collaborators.

“With the development of new technology, comes a great responsibility to push further into the unknown. A quote by Marie Curie really speaks to me on the work we do here, ‘Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.’It is with this in mind, that our research team pushes on towards discovery in helping people fight disease.”

Current Projects

Lyme

Ticks are a common vector, not all causative agents have been identified

Lyme

Lyme disease is often caused by a tick bite and associated with the genus Borrelia, within this genus are many species that may or may not be a causative agent in lymes disease. There are also other genus and species that may cause similar, but different tick-borne illness.

CDC info

Interstitial Cystitis

The cause is variable, recent successes suggest a bacterial or viral cause in certain cases.

Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial cystitis(IC) is a chronic painful or unpleasant urinary pain of unknown origin. This means the condition could still be bacterial, fungal, or viral, but the standard tests are unable to deduce the cause. Typical cases range from months to years.

CDC info

Lupus

The causes are still speculated, an autoimmune disorder with unusual triggers.

Lupus

Currently categorized as an autoimmune-related disease, the triggers are varied, but some are known to coincide with infection. There is a genetic predisposition, but the cause is still a matter of debate and needed research.

CDC info

Chronic Fatigue

An unusual tiredness or general malaise of often unknown origin.

Chronic Fatigue

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) A condition that lasts for more than 6 months in which a person feels tired most of the time. They may also have trouble concentrating and carrying out daily activities. Mayo clinic lists potential triggers as viral infection, immune system problems, and hormonal inbalances.

CDC info

Recurrent UTI

Recurrent urinary tract infections likely need targeted, species specific medicine to stop the root cause.

Recurrent UTI

Recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI) refers to ≥2 infections in six months or ≥3 infections in one year. Most recurrences are thought to represent reinfection rather than relapse, although occasionally a persistent strain can produce relapsing infection.

CDC info

PANS/PANDAS

Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Strep

PANS/PANDAS

1. PANDAS describes individuals who have OCD and or tics symptoms after a streptococcus infection.

2. PANS, also known as Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome is similar to PANDAS, but of unknown origin.
