ABOUT ASEP MEDICAL HOLDINGS INC.
Asep Medical Inc. (asepmedical.com) is dedicated to solving antibiotic failure by developing new solutions for significant unmet medical needs. The company is a consolidation of two existing private companies (Sepset Biosciences Inc. and ABT Innovations Inc.) which are both in the advanced development of the two proprietary diagnostic tools, enabling the early and rapid identification of severe sepsis as well as broad-spectrum therapies. agents for combating multidrug resistant biofilm infections.
Sepset Biosciences Inc. (sepset.ca) is developing diagnostic technology that involves a patient’s gene expression signature that predicts severe sepsis, one of the important diseases leading to antibiotic failure, since antibiotics are the primary sepsis treatment. Despite this, sepsis is responsible for almost 20% of all deaths on the planet. The SepsetER test is a blood-based gene expression test that is simple to perform, and results are obtained in approximately one hour in the emergency room or intensive care unit. This proprietary diagnostic technology differs from current diagnostic tests in that it can diagnose severe sepsis within 1-2 hours of first clinical presentation (i.e. in the emergency room), while other diagnostics provide a diagnosis only after 24 to 36 hours. Asep Inc. believes this will enable physicians to make critical early decisions about appropriate treatments and reduce overall morbidity and mortality from sepsis.
ABT Innovations Inc. (abtinnovations.ca) peptide technology covers a wide range of therapeutic applications, including bacterial biofilm infections (medical device infections, chronic infections, lung, bladder, wound, dental, skin, ear -nose-throat, sinusitis, orthopedics, etc.), anti-inflammatories, anti-infective immunomodulators and vaccine adjuvants.
