The Big Picture
The Cerebral Malaria (CM) epidemic
- Cerebral Malaria is a fatal infection that occurs in malarial cases.
- 10+ Million children (<5 years old) in Africa infected with CM annually, resulting in over 100,000 deaths*
There is some areas affected by Malaria in Africa, fortunately some areas are Malaria free but we can find on the map displaying a big part where still a risk.
Facing a problem
Misdiagnosis & patient prioritization
The current standard of care for CM often misdiagnoses about 25% of children that are never treated for and die of other non-malarial diseases. Aspire offers a highly specific test to confirm CM diagnosis; which significantly reduces the rate of false-positives and number of deaths due to other untreated diseases.
