Notes to Editors


Curidium Medica plc

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: www.curidium.com.
