London, UK-based personalised medicine company Curidium has filed worldwide trademark applications confirming PsychINDx as the name for its blood diagnostic test designed to classify patients with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder into four separate subgroups. The company claims that PsychINDx could improve treatment of these patients and aid the development of new drug treatments for these disorders. The global market for antipsychotics used in the treatment of these two illnesses was valued at $12.5bn in 2004 and is expected to grow to $20.5bn by 2009, according to Curidium.
