Heat Map: 5 Top Personalized Medicine Startups
For our 5 picks of personalized medicine startups, we used a data-driven startup scouting approach to identify the most relevant solutions globally. The Global Startup Heat Map below highlights 5 interesting examples out of 1.085 relevant solutions. Depending on your specific needs, your top picks might look entirely different.
Celcuity – Diagnostic & Test Platforms
Identifying the drug best suited to the specific biology of a patient’s disease can be achieved by specific ex vivo tests, based on the functionality of a patient’s diseased cells and their reaction to potential treatment. The US-based BioTech company Celcuity develops cell-based assays using a cellular analysis platform. Specific cellular data of patients offers clinicians and pharmaceutical companies unique insights into a patient’s response to drug therapy, thereby, improving personalized medicine.
InsightRX – Predictive Analytics
Predictive analytics for personalized medicine enables doctors to make decisions based on demographics, biomarkers, genetics, and drug levels to provide patients with a personalized dose. InsightRX from California offers a platform, which incorporates the principles of quantitative pharmacology and machine learning to provide an individualized understanding of a patient’s response to treatment.
Axial3D – 3D Printing
3D printing transforms the approach to personalized care delivery. 3D printed models facilitate a better understanding of abnormalities, encourage novel surgical techniques and improve the surgical outcome for patients. The Irish startup Axial3D is focused on driving the global adoption of 3D printing within healthcare. Axial3D provides precise, patient-specific 3D printed models, generated directly from a patient’s CT and MRI scan, and offers additional support for medical staff.
Platomics – Artificial Intelligence & Machine learning
Latest artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies help identify patterns within genetic data sets so that computer models can make predictions about an individual’s odds of developing a disease or responding to interventions. The Austrian startup Platomics creates PlatoX — a digital infrastructure for physicians, laboratory and test providers, that ensures high analysis quality, and highly scalable testing procedures of genetic diseases using Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). This information allows analyzing thousands of mutations in the human genome using modern methods of information technology and artificial intelligence.
Encellin – Implantable Sensors
Advances in nanotechnology shrink sensors and other devices to allow their implantation in the body. Biosensors continuously monitor patients remotely and tailor their treatments on the go, in order to give an early warning for a person developing health problems, and alerting physicians if threshold levels are reached. The US-based company Encellin develops a thin-film cell encapsulation device, which is implanted under the skin for cell-based therapeutics, providing a long-term auto-regulation therapeutic solution without recharge or refill when it is needed.
