Adiposs is a Swiss biotech start-up company developing medical imaging products and technologies for early detection of 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 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.
Adiposs is very proud to have won 150'000 CHF in the third stage of Venture Kick. This convertible loan will help Adiposs moving forward towards clinical development.
The Swiss-Indian Academia-Industry Training Camp took place last week in Switzerland after being held in India last September. Adiposs is proud to be one of the four winners of the pitching competition.
