MeMed’s COVID-19 Severity Test Receives CE Mark for Predicting Severe Outcomes in COVID-19 Patients

MeMed COVID-19 Severity reads the immune-system in real time to accurately determine whether SARS-Cov-2 patients are likely to have a severe outcome

HAIFA, Israel, July 21st, 2021 – MeMed, a leader in host response-based technologies, today announces that it has received the CE Mark in Europe for its new disease management solution, MeMed COVID-19 Severity™.

MeMed COVID-19 Severity™ is a pioneering host response technology that measures multiple proteins from a serum sample and applies machine learning to stratify the risk that a patient with COVID-19 disease is likely to experience severe outcomes.

The test runs in 15 minutes on the company’s point-of-need platform, MeMed Key®, and aims to help physicians identify who may benefit from escalated care and who may be safely discharged from the hospital and instructed to self-isolate at home.

Eran Eden, MeMed’s co-founder and CEO, said: “I am delighted that we are now able to commercialize a pioneering solution to help identify COVID-19 patients at risk of severe outcomes, empowering physicians to manage what is increasingly likely to become an endemic situation. MeMed COVID-19 Severity is also relevant for authorities contemplating preparedness for future pandemics.
It is another exciting step in the company’s long-term vision of harnessing the power of the host-immune response in order to transform the way infections are detected and managed.

MeMed has recently published the results from a multinational derivation study1, demonstrating the signature’s ability to accurately predict severe COVID-19 respiratory failure. The company has completed an additional independent multinational validation study; the results will be revealed in coming months.

Sergey Motov, MD, Professor of Emergency Medicine, Maimonides Medical Center said: “Highly sensitive and accurate diagnostic and prognostic tests are key tools for clinicians. As an ER doctor myself, I am fascinated by the potential for host immune response technologies to help predict patient outcomes. Tools like MeMed COVID-19 Severity are a win-win solution: doctors can assess the likelihood of patients suffering from severe complications, enabling tailored treatments or discharge if the risk of deteriorating is low.”

MeMed COVID-19 Severity will be available in Europe directly from MeMed in our priority countries and through our commercial partner channels in others.
