MR-proADM test for use with clinical deterioration scores in cases of suspected infection: Medtech innovation briefing [MIB195]

Year of publication
  • The technology described in this briefing is the MR-proADM test. It measures levels of mid-regional proadrenomedullin (MR-proADM), a precursor of adrenomedullin, levels of which can be increased in severe infections. The MR-proADM test is used alongside tools such as the National Early Warning Score (NEWS and NEWS2) to detect clinical deterioration in cases of suspected infection.The innovative aspect is that the test measures a unique biomarker (MR-proADM) that allows more accurate prediction of deterioration.The intended place in therapy would be with NEWS, NEWS2 and other tests and observations in people with suspected infection. It was published in October 2019.
