Mirvie is redefining pregnancy health by developing the first early detection RNA test to address pregnancy complications which impact 45 million women globally
  • Pregnancy complications affect 45 million women globally each year, triple the rate of cancer incidence. Today there is no reliable way to identify those pregnancies at-risk.
  • The goal of Mirvie’s simple blood test is the early detection of complications such as preterm birth, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes, which has the potential to reduce pregnancy healthcare costs by up to 65%.
  • Mirvie is led by a team of pioneers in women’s health, perinatal health, early cancer detection, liquid biopsy and gene sequencing.

SAN FRANCISCO – April 27, 2021 – Mirvie, a pioneer in pregnancy health, today announced it is making rapid progress toward developing a simple, personalized blood test with the potential for early detection of pregnancy complications, such as preterm birth, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes, which affect 1 in 5 women. Currently, there is no reliable way to identify if a mother is at risk for these significant pregnancy complications.

A simple blood test to predict premature births could save babies’ lives
Complications from preterm birth are the leading cause of death worldwide in children under five.

by Bonnie Rochman

Fifteen million babies are born pre­maturely each year. Stephen Quake’s daughter, Zoe, was one of them: she arrived via emergency C-section after Quake and his wife, Athina, made a middle-of-the-night dash to the emergency room, a month before Zoe was due. She spent her first night in an incubator, and her father, a bioengineer then at Caltech, wondered why birth couldn’t be more predictable…
