Voor wie denkt dat novacyt alleen met COVID bezig is, van het Britse forum geplukt
the Company will initially focus on the following therapeutic areas for organic R&D investment:
· Seasonal respiratory diseases, where the testing market is estimated to be worth approximately $1.4bn and is growing at a CAGR of approximately 4%. Through its research, Novacyt has confirmed it is already on the right track with its ongoing development of a respiratory panel for COVID-19 combining influenza A/B and RSV A/B (WinterpanelTM). The Company is also evaluating the need for additional respiratory panels, including atypical pneumonia to cover bacteria, such as bordetella, legionella and mycoplasma, and panels for other respiratory viruses such as parainfluenza, adenovirus and rhinovirus.
· Gastro-intestinal (GI) infections and is embarking on the development of viral panels covering viruses such as norovirus, rotavirus and adenovirus and a bacterial panel to include bacteria such as clostridium difficile, salmonella, shigella. These panels will be designed for a near-patient workflow that can be deployed in "spoke labs" such as in medium district general hospitals, community hospitals, hospital wards or for example in nursing homes, amongst other possible settings. The global GI testing market is estimated to be worth over $630m and is growing at a CAGR of approximately 5%.
· The Company had, prior to undertaking its market research, embarked on developing single analyte transplant products for cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr virus and BK virus infections on its genesig® platform, which can be run on existing laboratory systems, with extraction, where sample flexibility and sensitivity are key, and quantification of viral load is required. The Company continues to see this as a growth opportunity, with the global transplant market for monitoring viral load in immunocompromised patients estimated to be worth $151m with a CAGR of approximately 5%.
· Novacyt is embarking on the development of a viral panel for insect borne diseases, such as Dengue, Zika and Yellow fever, where the Company already has RUO assays. As mosquitos' habitats expand, rates of these associated diseases are increasing and have become a priority for the WHO, which has led to the launch of the organisation's Global Arbovirus Initiative. Including this panel in the development strategy not only expands its test menu and serves unmet needs, in combination with its near patient workflow, but also aligns squarely with the Company's "global first responder" strategy of tackling outbreaks and supporting neglected tropical disease diagnosis. The global market for insect borne viral diseases is estimated to be worth $156m, growing at a CAGR of approximately 5%
