Perceiv is an AI-based digital biomarkers company specializing in the field of precision medicine. We are dedicated to help improving and saving patient lives through more efficient, accurate, subject targeting, and objective prognosis through advanced machine learning algorithms.
Diseases are more complex than they appear resulting in problems when finding the right population to treat and demonstrate treatment efficacy. We help pharmaceutical companies improve their chances of success by identifying the right subjects for their clinical trials using our AI-driven precision medicine platform. We specialize in the identification of subpopulations of interest in heterogeneous data and complex diseases.
Perceiv is currently developing applications for Alzheimer's disease and in cardiovascular indications.
Our proprietary platform enables us to ingest various types of data to better characterize individuals (imaging, genetic, phenotypic and clinical variables).
Identify with high precision subgroups in heterogeneous populations.
High specificity and thorough validation of the biomarkers make them actionable in real-life clinical settings.
Reduce clinical trial costs using digital biomarkers for precise patients enrollment.
Prognostic and predictive biomarkers based on clinical data.
Improve treatment outcome by targeting responders. Re-prioritize low efficacy drugs using companion diagnostic (CDx).
Predict future risk of cognitive decline. We provide high precision digital biomarkers of the progression to Alzheimer's dementia at a prodromal stage. Those tools are aimed at population enrichment for clinical trials in Alzheimer's disease and carry the potential to be a cost-saving alternative to the current enrolment strategy as well as maximizing our ability to detect the effectiveness of drugs.
Predict Amyloid-Beta+ subjects using broadly available modalities. We provide a pre-screening strategy for amyloid-beta positive subjects using broadly available modalities before an amyloid PET scan.
