ScleroTest has proven to be reliable in a 3-year pre-clinical study, in which we identified specific bacteria species that are only found on the gut of MS patients with a poor response to treatment. From this, ScleroTest is designed as a q-PCR diagnostic kit to be tested on MS stool patients. However, still, we must optimize the design by determining the specific PCR reaction parameters and test its efficacy in a relevant clinical environment. Thus, after optimization, we will manufacture ~900kits to test in a clinical study. Later, we will obtain the CE mark and FDA clearance for market approval and ScleroTest will enter the in vitro diagnostic market (expected to reach USD 87.9B in 2023). In 5 years, it will generate €45M in revenues, serving 376k MS patients throughout Europe and the US. We estimate a need for €1,7M to reach the market and an additional €1,2M in further post-market commercialization activities.
