revolutionize recombinant protein delivery.

PROBLEM: Current generation gene therapy technology has several limitations, which prevent its application to the treatment of prevalent conditions. High cost, immunogenicity, and the inability to adjust the dose following initial administration, are currently limiting this revolutionary therapeutic modality.
SOLUTION: Remedium has developed a revolutionary gene delivery platform, Prometheus™, which can replace repeat subcutaneous protein injections, with a single injection, ultra-low cost, durable, and adjustable treatment. The first Prometheus™ candidate delivers a GLP-1 receptor agonist and demonstrates weight loss, glycemic control, and insulin response superior to daily GLP-1 protein injections (e.g. Ozempic®) - with a potentially increased safety and tolerability profile.

PROBLEM: Cardiospire will provide high-fidelity cardiac output and pulmonary artery pressures from the hospital to the home. Current solutions are inaccurate, invasive, or carry risk. A new approach is needed to adequately manage our vulnerable CHF, sepsis, and surgical patients.
SOLUTION: Cardiospire identifies and isolates cardiogenic oscillations (COS) in airway pressure. The shape, timing, and amplitude of these oscillations provide critical information about pressures in the pulmonary artery and left heart performance. Cardiospire has demonstrated robust COS capture in ventilated and spontaneously-breathing ambulatory patients.

PROBLEM: R&D partnering and technology scouting is a manual and antiquated process that still relies primarily on in-person conferences and personal connections.
SOLUTION: Halo leverages AI and a network of ecosystem partners across 100+ countries to programmatically connect corporate R&D teams with scientists and research partners with relevant technologies and expertise.

PROBLEM: Millions of heart failure and other at-risk patients in the hospital & at home have insufficient non-invasive advanced cardiac monitoring. This is leading to undetected hemodynamic deterioration - including heart failure exasperation, organ dysfunction & death. The result is billions of dollars lost by hospitals and insurers on more intensive treatments, unplanned ICU visits, extended lengths of stay and (re)hospitalizations.SOLUTION: VenoVision is an affordable, easy-to-use, non-invasive advanced cardiac monitoring device & platform for the entire continuum of care. It uses thermal imaging & AI to deliver hemodynamic insights previously limited to invasive sensors, uniquely overcoming the challenges of assessing obese patients. By filling in key patient status biometrics, VenoVision will help medical teams spot deterioration sooner and better guide therapy in the hospital & at home.
