Research and Development

Medicortex’s aim is to develop a simple, easy-to-use and relatively cheap test based on a biomarker found in one of the body fluids. Ideally, the test could be applied within minutes of the initial insult.

A biomarker diagnostic test for TBI may be of use in identifying individuals with severe TBI, who are at risk of secondary brain injury and therefore require increased surveillance, or for those individuals with mild TBI, who otherwise may remain undiagnosed and untreated. A diagnostic test can also be applied in cases where there are no external signs of injury, for example for soldiers exposed to blast or explosion injuries.
