FSIF COVID BIOSCIENCE APPLIES FOR PATENT ON INNOVATIVE NEW COVID-19 TEST
New Technology Will Stratify COVID-19 Patients for Better Care
Cambridge, MD, June 15 — FSIF COVID BioScience, a biotechnology company focused on harnessing the power of the human immune system to diagnosis and treat COVID-19, announced today that it just filed a new patent for the Company’s innovative
FSIF (Full Spectrum Interferon Fingerprint) COVID-19 test. While the technology behind this newly filed patent will serve as an accurate diagnostic for COVID-19, its real value is the ability stratify patients into degrees of disease severity as noted in the grid below:
Due to the complexity of Corona viruses like the one that causes COVID-19, a number of features from this virus block and disrupt our complex but usually very effective immune system. “Our immune biomarker test identifies and quantifies the human immune system’s response to the virus and uses this information to identify those COVID-19 patients who are potentially at risk of developing a more severe case of the virus” Dr. Robert Figliozzi, Chief Science Officer at FSIF COVID Biosciences. Since each patient infected with COVID-19 reacts differently to the virus, the Company is integrating artificial intelligence and machine learning into the technology to utilize the test to help determine the likely course of the disease for each individual patient. In addition, “understanding how an individual patient is likely to respond to the disease will help alleviate many of the burdens that this disease places on our healthcare system and our society as well as allow physicians and other healthcare professionals to allocate limited resources where they are needed most” noted Company CEO David Spiegel.
“The Company is excited to be receiving help and support from some of the nation’s leading research university hospitals and lab groups as it performs the necessary validation trials. COVID-19 is an issue for the entire planet and FSIF COVID BioScience is eager to contribute to the solution from our home on the Eastern Shore of Maryland” said Dr. Figliozzi.
