BRAINBox Solutions today announced initial investments into the company’s Series B financing to support U.S. regulatory clearance and initial commercialization of its BRAINBox TBI concussion diagnostic/prognostic test in adults and completion of a clinical study in pediatric patients. Genoa Ventures is leading the financing, which includes other current and new investors.
“We have made significant clinical and pre-commercial progress in developing the BRAINBox TBI test,” said Donna Edmonds, BRAINBox Solutions’ CEO. “We are working with selected platform partners as we determine the fastest path to market for use in both point-of-care and emergency department settings.” She noted that in addition to the adult population, the company is developing BRAINBox TBI tests for pediatric patients, and, through a National Institutes of Health grant, for geriatric patients.
“The BRAINBox TBI test is the first to integrate physiologic and functional testing, an approach that is designed to maximize sensitivity and specificity, and provide objective criteria for the diagnosis and prognosis of acute traumatic encephalopathy, commonly known as concussion,” said W. Frank Peacock, MD FACEP, FACC, FESC, the study’s Principal Investigator and Professor, Vice Chair for Research, Henry JN Taub Department of Emergency Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine.
