Aegirbio is a Swedish diagnostics company offering tests to monitor and optimize the dosing of biological drugs by means of a unique, patented technology platform. Biological therapies is the fastest growing segment of the pharmaceutical industry; At the same time, drug concentrations vary tremendously (up to 100 times) in patients that receive biological drugs in standard doses.
The result of this one size fits all-approach is that patients with low drug concentrations do not respond to treatment while excessive drug concentrations increase the risk of adverse effects in others. The uncertainty surrounding dosing results in overdosing or underdosing in about 55 percent of the cases, which causes unnecessary costs and suboptimal clinical outcomes.
The Company's tests for optimal dosing of biological drugs will be focused on neurological disorders, autoimmune diseases and cancer. Diagnostics will be offered through laboratory testing as well as in the form of a P.O.C. (Point of Care) test for use in hospitals and health centres. The plan further includes P.O.N. (Point of Need) tests for use at home.
