In researching porphyria, a dreadful metabolic disease caused by genetical defects, INOSIM keeps being engaged. February 28, 2014, we were around at the First Symposium on Porphyria, Berlin, Germany, presenting a lecture: Katrin Sulzbacher spoke on “computer-aided simulation model of haem synthesis in acute porphyria”. More than 60 visitors of the symposium – familiy doctors, clinical doctors and concerned patients – took benefits from her presentation.

By using our consulting services for process engineering together with process simulation software, the medics and scientist on research here shall be enabled to scrutinize the effects of this genetic defect furthermore. The work of INOSIM helps to uncover the interrelations which form the basis of the metabolic dysregulation in acute porphyrias.

The model developed for this purpose by INOSIM in co-operation with notable medical researchers is describing synthesis, consumption, and regulation of the red haemoglobin (haem) in the human liver. This completely new approach to further research of the disease was lively debated by the symposium´s visitors. Finally it was welcomed by the specialists as well as by the patients
