A rapid, low cost test for early detection of Sepsis
There are approximately 123,000 cases of sepsis per year in England and around 36,800 associated deaths – of which 70% of cases come from the community. Medtechtomarket Consulting Ltd have demonstrated a proof of concept (patent filed) for a novel, highly sensitive, simple and low cost test for the early diagnosis and subsequent therapy monitoring of Sepsis. This project proposal focuses on performance feasibility studies, and establishing a clinical advisory panel. The vision is that GPs will be able to test for sepsis much sooner and more often, reducing uncertainty and allowing treatment to start in the critical early stages.
