  • Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust (PHT) has won a prestigious national award for the work it has done to maximise clinical research activity across the Trust.
  • Aseptika Limited was selected as the Winner from three finalists for the category of Business Innovation at the Hunts Post Business Innovation Awards 2014, held at the glittering Awards Ceremony on the evening of Friday, 31st October at Burgess Hall, St Ives, Cambridgeshire. Aseptika is a healthcare company developing a self-monitoring service in the form of a home-use sputum test, simple self-monitoring devices and an online user interface known as Activ8rlives. Our niche focus is predicting the onset of lung infections in people with long-term respiratory conditions. Patients with severe airway disease are often chronically infected by a bacterium, despite attempts to treat these infections, complete eradication can be difficult. Flare-ups or exacerbations of these infections are common, leading to deterioration in symptoms, which can result in 3-4 prolonged hospital admissions per year. Repeated exacerbations result in the loss of lung function reducing quality of life, are very disruptive, costly and can result in premature death.  Commenting on the win Jessica Auton, Co-Founder and Marketing Director of Aseptika (Activ8rlives) said: “To be selected as the Winner of the Hunts Post Business Innovation Award for 2014 is a great honour for our small organization. This accolade will help us increase our visibility and get the message out about our solution that could transform the digital healthcare space for individuals at home self-managing their own health and wellbeing. Our ultimate vision is to provide tools for lung disease patients, to do what has been done for diabetics with the widely available home blood glucose tests.”   Caption: Hunts Post Business Innovation Award 2014 awarded to Aseptika Limited (Activ8rlives).

Aseptika is a healthcare company developing a self-monitoring service in the form of a home-use sputum test, simple self-monitoring devices and an online user interface known as Activ8rlives. Our niche focus is predicting the onset of lung infections in people with long-term respiratory conditions. Patients with severe airway disease are often chronically infected by the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa and in these patients, despite attempts to treat these infections, complete eradication can be difficult. Flare-ups of the infection (exacerbations) are common, leading to deterioration in symptoms, which can result in 3-4 prolonged hospital admissions per year. Repeated exacerbations result in loss of lung function reducing quality of life, are very disruptive, costly and can result in premature death. Commenting on the win Kevin Auton, Ph.D., Co-Founder and Managing Director of Aseptika Limited commented: “We are delighted to be awarded this honour, especially in light of the outstanding quality of the finalists that presented to the Judges on the day. As a healthcare company we utilise wireless technology, cloud computing, connected and wearable devices, combined with a biomarker test still in development. We are working towards helping to empower patients, their family or carers to monitor for declining health in elderly or vulnerable members of the family. Kevin added further: Our ultimate vision and mission is to provide tools for lung disease patients, to do what has been done for diabetics with home blood glucose tests.” - Ends - Caption: Discovery Start-up 2014 organisers, sponsors and winners, Kevin A.

It is the first time these connections are being studied in people over 60 years of age. The results are published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry.
