The ORIGINS Project follows the progress of pregnant women, their partners and babies for the first five years of the baby’s life, and beyond, based on an increasing understanding that an individual’s lifetime health and disease may be programmed at a very early stage – even while a child is still in the womb. The project is collecting detailed information on how a child’s early environment and parents‘ physical health and genetics influence the risk of a wide range of diseases and conditions such as asthma, eczema, food allergies, hay fever, diabetes, obesity and neuro-developmental challenges.
„Being able to measure the skin barrier and detect early signs of eczema in our ORIGINS children will allow parents to access early intervention and hopefully reduce the severity of this condition,“ ORIGINS Biobank Manager, Dr Nina D’Vaz said. „We have been able to purchase the Nevisense with generous support from SciBase along with a grant from the Telethon Channel 7 Trust, a significant fundraising organisation in Western Australia, and we are so grateful.“
„There is a growing acceptance of the potential of our Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) technology to evaluate the skin barrier of infants and that this can provide valuable insights and diagnostic opportunities.The ORIGINS project is a fascinating project, and we welcome the opportunity to collaborate with them and be a part of it. Nevisense and EIS will follow the development of atopic dermatitis through measurements of the skin barrier in children. The measurements will help us develop and improve our AI-algorithms even further with the goal of delivering better, personalized treatments. We see this project as yet another important step in shaping a future where medical technology is accessible, non-invasive, and personalized“, says Simon Grant CEO SciBase.
