Adiposs is a Swiss biotech start-up company developing medical imaging products and technologies for early detection of cachexia

Cachexia

Cachexia is a fatal body wasting syndrome characterized by involuntary weight loss, muscle atrophy, fatigue, weakness and loss of appetite. 


9 million patients diagnosed with cancer every year are affected by cachexia.       It dramatically reduces their quality of life, response and tolerance to cancer therapies and survival. 


1 in 4 cancer patients dies as a consequence of cachexia and not cancer itself, yet doctors do not know when cachexia begins.

ImageBAT

ImageBAT is a new CT contrast agent which enables early detection of cachexia before patients lose body weight.  Detection of cachexia will be fast, pain-free and available in every hospital worldwide. ImageBAT will give millions of cancer patients an improved quality of life and a better chance to survive cancer.
