OtoNexus Medical Technologies, Inc. is commercializing a ground-breaking, patented, medical device to rapidly and accurately diagnose middle ear infections, called Otitis Media (OM), in children and adults. In 2013, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued strong new guidelines for the diagnosis, treatment and management of Acute Otitis Media. These guidelines focus on reducing ?the use of antibiotics and increasing scrutiny on accuracy in diagnoses, stating, among other things, that antibiotics should only be prescribed when the diagnosis is unequivocal. The problem is that, with current tools, the diagnoses are rarely unequivocal, especially in the difficult differentiation between viral and bacterial infections. Thus, the physicians were given very clear guidelines, but no good tools with which to comply.
