In the news: Spinverse-coordinated EU project IP4Plasma uses plasma to fight diseases

21 Apr 2016

Euronews just published a fascinating piece on Spinverse-coordinated EU project IP4Plasma, exploring superpowers of plasma for innovative rapid tests for tuberculosis and HIV.

The current gold standard for a complete medical evaluation for tuberculosis must include a medical history, a physical examination, a chest X-ray and microbiological examination, as well as a tuberculin skin test and surgical biopsy, and could take several weeks. Whereas, in contrast, the tuberculosis test to be developed in the IP4Plasma project will allow a diagnosis within minutes, will be highly sensitive (>99% for TB positive cases detected) and specific (>99%). What is more, it promises to be inexpensive – approximately 1EUR for endemic countries and 5EUR for Western Europe – and be carried out without any test installation.
