Personalised Precision Medicine for Inflammatory Diseases (IDs)​

IDs are a  wide  range  of  conditions  driven  by  Chronic  Inflammatory  (CI)  processes.  They encompass most chronic Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) such as cardiovascular conditions, cancers, diabetes, arthritis, neurodegenerative disorders, and bowel diseases. Chronic Inflammatory Diseases (CIDs) are a  major  cause  of  sickness  and premature death globally.

From late action

To early diagnostic and prevention

 The  World  Economic  Forum  estimates  that  the  global  costs  of  just  four  chronic  diseases –cancer,diabetes, heart disease and respiratory disease –will reach $47 trillion by 2030

All these conditions are characterised by CI processes and there are no reliable, prognostic biomarkers to measure it.  

Medics diagnose Chronic Inflammatory Diseases only after tissue and organ damage has occurred and are unable to reliably identify the most vulnerable patients to prevent development of the disease at the early stage.
For many syndromic IDs, medics cannot readily distinguish between the different possible types of immune dysfunction, so they use imprecise therapies that alleviate symptoms rather than identify and treat causes.

From imprecision

To personalised treatment solutions

From expensive

To affordable and accessible to all

The lack of affordable and scalable prognostic and predictive tests leads to mounting healthcare costs. Patients with the worst health outcomes are only identified when they have serious inflammatory episodes. Hence costs to treat them are significantly higher.

Vision

To develop safe, effective, and affordable personalised precision healthcare solutions for inflammatory diseases to improve individuals’ overall quality of life.

 

Mission

ITo develop fast-track diagnostic tools and treatments for those vulnerable to inflammatory diseases. Avenna aims to improve healthspan and reduce healthcare costs to enable individuals to lead longer, healthier, and happier lifestyles. Our med term focus surrounds precision healthcare biomarkers for inflammatory bowel, brain, and skin diseases.

Our Story

Avenna was founded in 2017 to translate a promising glycomic research programme conducted by its sister company, Ludger, into practical, and affordable diagnostic tools for inflammatory diseases. We are now working with different members within the healthcare ecosystem including  scientists, clinicians, academics and patient groups, to further translate this assay into clinical biomarkers. 

Avenna translates and transforms promising research programmes into practical, affordable, and accessible tools tailored to inflammatory diseases, for personal, public, and clinical use. ​
