It addresses a critical need in the healthcare system, streamlining patient care and bringing renewed hope to the millions of patients grappling with high failure rates of first-line treatments and lengthy periods of trial-and-error to find the right therapy.

Dr. Paul Sargeant, CEO, Circular Genomics said, “Precision psychiatry, driven by circular RNA biomarkers, equips physicians with a biomarker-based approach towards personalized care for patients fighting major depression, We plan to launch our first test in 2024, which will predict response to SSRI antidepressants, addressing the issue of high therapy failure rates, and low clinical outcomes. Furthermore, the launch of this first assay paves the way for a set of tests covering the complete patient care continuum in major depression, and using the same circular RNA platform, in other neurological diseases too.”

Joe Cook, III, Managing Partner of Mountain Group Partners said, “We are excited to support Circular Genomics in advancing the development of the circular RNA biomarker platform, The expansion of this platform holds the potential to dramatically improve patient outcomes and broaden our understanding of psychiatric and neurological conditions.”
