StratifiCare – Predicting Severe Dengue
Dengue fever is one of the most common NTDs affecting millions of people every year. Even though the majority of the dengue infections are mild, severe forms of dengue often result in death. Accurate and early prediction of dengue disease progression significantly reduces the fatality risk associated with severe dengue.
StratifiCare provides a severe dengue prediction kit. It uses a set of proprietary biomarkers and a common laboratory assay platform. The solution is currently in the clinical development stage. The kit is able to deliver accuracy with 90% sensitivity and 97% specificity, in turn, reducing hospitalization costs.
