Industry outlook

Acarix is in a market development phase. The CADScor medical device helps doctors rule out coronary artery disease so avoids complex and costly further testing in 50% of cases. Acarix is boosting its sales team. In Germany, an alliance with MED will help sales. The Dan-NICAD II study evaluates the test in patients aged 30–39 with suspected stable coronary artery disease to aid key opinion leader acceptance of CADScor. The Seismo study explores the use of CADScor for the early diagnosis of heart failure. Acarix is now developing a US market entry strategy and the likely FDA trial needs.
