Our Ideas

At SRS Life Sciences, we pursue innovation that is ultimately capable of reducing disease burden.

We are constantly thinking about and initiating new ideas that can change what is possible for the health of people living in emerging nations.

Pneumonia
Tuberculosis
Hypertension
Anemia
Sepsis and NEC

Increasing survival for children with pneumonia with the world’s first AI-enabled differential diagnostic solution.

The issue

2019

Globally in 2019, an estimated 5.2 million children under the age of five died mostly from preventable and treatable causes1 - 80% of these children lived in emerging nations

Deaths

Almost a quarter of deaths in children under the age of five are caused by pneumonia 2

Symptoms

Symptoms of pneumonia are similar to that of cold and flu, making it difficult to diagnose rapidly and treat effectively

Care

Globally, only 54% with symptoms of pneumonia receive the care they need 3

Looking to the future

The combined solution of iARD and Amox-DT will be rolled out in India and SEA by end-2021

Our Solution and Impact

We are working to further empower healthcare professionals to diagnose and treat pneumonia in children via:

Intelligent Algorithm for Respiratory Disease (iARD)


The world’s first artificially intelligent enabled stethoscope system, which collects data to feed into an intelligent algorithm for respiratory diseases (iARD) that can deliver a more rapid and accurate diagnosis.

 

Amox-DT


An approved first line of antibiotics for community acquired pneumonia in children between two and 59 months.

Amox-DT formulations are easy to consume by children – either via a dissolvable tablet or pre-filled syringe. Both formulations are low-cost to ensure accessibility.

Reducing burden of tuberculosis via the world’s first food for special medical purposes (FSMP)

The issue

Every 22 seconds

a person dies from tuberculosis4

In 2019 alone

an estimated 10 million people contracted tuberculosis and 1.4 million people died as a result 5

Resistant

While interventions exist for tuberculosis, an estimated 4.1% of people who contract it are resistant to treatment – and this figure is expected to increase

Looking to the future

We aim to make TBMune™ available to people in an additional 10 emerging nations before 2022

Our Solution and Impact

We have made available and continue to expand access to TBMune™, the world’s first every clinically-proven FSMP that triggers an immune response which protects against bacteria, decreasing the risk of developing and spreading tuberculosis

TBMune™ comes in different formats – tablet and sachets – for better compliance

It is currently available for registration in 15 high-burden countries in Asia and Africa.

The first autophagy aid to support cardiovascular health

The issue

High blood pressure

is a serious medical condition that significantly increases the risks of other cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and stroke

1.13 billion people

An estimated 1.13 billion people worldwide have high blood pressure6

Two-thirds of people

with high blood pressure are in low and middle-income countries and fewer than one in five people have their condition under control, which is a major cause of premature death worldwide

Looking to the future

A study in Austria is ongoing to confirm the effect of spermidine as a natural substance to determine its use to reverse the effects of hypertension and is expected to be completed by 2021.

Our Solution and Impact

SpermidineLIFE®

With the use of advanced technology, we are harnessing an existing natural compound, spermidine, from wheat germ (food that contains the highest quantity of spermidine) to be used as a dietary supplement in the form of a capsule

Studies have shown that spermidine can help lower blood pressure and subsequently reduce the risk of heart failure and other cardiovascular diseases7

Tackling anemia burden via a breakthrough technology to deliver ferretin orally

The issue

1.62 billion people

Globally, about 1.62 billion people are currently affected by anemia8

Chronic diseases

can also cause iron deficiency anemia – chronic kidney disease, chronic heart failure, cancer and inflammatory bowel disease

Left untreated

anemia can have a significant impact on health as well as productivity, resulting from lasting fatigue

Looking to the future

A study on nutritional deficiency anemia correction commenced in India at the end of 2020, and is expected to be completed by end 2021

Our Solution

BioFE

We are developing a cost-effective formulation to tackle iron deficiency in combination with B12 and folic acid

Minimising newborn sepsis and NEC risk via probiotic development

The issue

Neonatal sepsis

is the third leading cause of neonatal mortality

First week of life

It is responsible for 13% of all neonatal mortality, and 42% of deaths happen in the first week of life

Developing countries

lack sepsis surveillance and reporting systems, meaning the real impact could be much higher

Looking to the future

Infloran focused on neonatal population is already under registration in various countries and we intend to register this product in all high impact countries in 2021. (India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand, Russia, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, Chile, Peru, Costa Rica, Columbia)

Our Solution

Infloran and Bifidobacterium Breve M-16V
