Presymptom Health is open to investment discussions to join us on our journey to build a revolutionary portfolio of COVID, sepsis and general acute care tests.
Presymptom has secured a total of nearly £2M of private and public sector support to date from UKI2S, Ploughshare, Dept of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, the Defence Innovation Unit, and a strategic industrial sponsor.
Sepsis is the immune system’s overreaction to an infection or injury and is associated with life-threatening organ dysfunction. The challenge with treating patients with sepsis is that by the time symptoms become present the patient is already very ill and mortality rates can exceed 50%.

The scale of the Sepsis problem is global.
Presymptom has initiated the development of its test portfolio with seed investments from Ploughshare and UKI2S.

Presymptom anticipates raising an additional £3-5M over 2023/24.
