We are, however, in the advanced stages of developing what's called a theranostic treatment for sepsis.
A theranostic is a diagnostic test that helps clinicians make the right therapeutic decision for the right patients, enabling a more personalized approach to medicine. bioMérieux is partnering with pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies and payers to develop theranostic tests which:
With the design of 'theranostic' molecules, mNPs could play a crucial role in developing one-stop tools to simultaneously diagnose, monitor and treat a wide range of common diseases and injuries.
Our sepsis theranostic consists of the world's first diagnostic tool for detecting endotoxin in the blood stream, called the Endotoxin Activity Assay already Health Canada and FDA approved, and owned by Spectral, and a therapeutic tool called the Toraymyxin column, which removes endotoxin from the blood.
Examples include multifunctional nanoparticles that are designed for multimodality imaging and simultaneous diagnostic and therapy theranostic applications.
"The need for more precise, personalized healthcare provided by our innovative diagnostic, prognostic and theranostic technologies is undeniable.
