Scipher Medicine is launching a personalized medicine platform for patients with autoimmune diseases that interpret an individual’s own molecular data to ensure care is tailored to improve the prospect of reaching remission. Most patients diagnosed with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and multiple sclerosis face a long and difficult journey of trial error treatment of switching between different drugs with severe side effects without any clinical benefit as most approved drugs only benefit few patients. Beyond being exposed on unnecessary side effects the disease can progress to an irreversible stage while escalating pain is managed by an increased use of opioids. Scipher’s platform allows clinicians to select most optimal treatment pathway for each individual patient. The molecular data from our growing patient population using Scipher’s platform is further analyzed to develop novel therapies for patients who do not respond to current standard of care.
Scipher is driven by data, passionate about improving healthcare, determined to push science, and convinced the fastest way forward is through collaboration. This is a unique opportunity to join a promising and exciting new venture tackling one of the largest problems in health care today.
Scipher is backed by Khosla Ventures, Northpond Ventures, Alumni Ventures and Tachyon Ventures and has raised $30 million to date.
