Senzime receives research grant from Bio-X
Uppsala, April 19, 2016. Senzime receives research grant from Vinnova through Bio-X, to conduct a study designed for clinical evaluation of OnZurf Probe and CliniSenz Analyzer for postoperative monitoring of patients with esophagus cancer. The grant also provides the ability to carry out activities prior to commercialization and CE marking of the products. The grant amounts to SEK 2 million, and the study will be conducted in Lund.
"Through blood tests, for example, lack of oxygen in the newly operated organ in some cases is detected after several days. Coupled with OnZurf Probe, our instruments CliniSenz Analyzer detect signs of this serious complication already after 20 minutes, which will result in significant patient benefit and reduced health care costs. We have previously conducted a clinical study where we monitored the blood sugar levels in patients at risk for diabetes. Now we will document the benefits of OnZurf Probe and CliniSenz Analyzer in patients with esophagus cancer, which is a large and growing patient population, and we will continue to seek partnerships to clinically document the benefits of our products, "says Lena Söderström, CEO of Senzime AB.
