Thanks to the NIHR Grant, the project team will be able to conduct a clinical trial and a health economics study in the UK to prove the efficacy of their cutting-edge technology. This clinical trial represents a crucial step forward in the company's mission to prevent organ failure and improve patient outcomes. “The CIBIL study aims to provide clinical and health economic evidence to allow further deployment of Predigraft in Europe and in the United Kingdom. It opens the way to a large adoption of AI-based medical device software”, states Victoria Hemzacek, Strategic Development Manager of Cibiltech.

“This vital grant will enable testing AI-based medical device software in clinical care in the best possible way with a blinded design.
