Notes to Editors

Curidium Medica

Curidium is a personalized medicine company identifying targeted medicines and companion diagnostics to treat patients more effectively.

Curidium's initial focus on diseases of the Central Nervous System has resulted in the identification of a blood diagnostic test, PsychINDxTM, which classifies patients with schizophrenia/bipolar disorder into four subgroups. PsychINDxTM may have the potential to improve the treatment of patients with schizophrenia/ bipolar disorder.

Many chronic human diseases are heterogeneous and their patient populations consist of mixed subgroups. Through the use of its proprietary analysis tool, Homomatrix®, Curidium aims to reveal different patient subgroups characterized by distinct underlying disease mechanisms potentially leading to the identification of:

1.  Diagnostics for better identification and treatment within heterogeneous
    disease populations.

2.  Improved therapies identified through novel drug targets.

3.  Personalized medicines using companion diagnostics and targeted treatments.

Curidium aims to continue to use this approach to improve patient treatments in a variety of therapeutic areas. Further information on Curidium can be found at the Company's website:
