IMMUNOLOGY AND SURGERY
Surge2Surgery test is grounded on years of clinical, basic science, and translational research led by our Stanford team
CLINICAL RECOVERY FROM SURGERY CORRELATES WITH SINGLE-CELL IMMUNE SIGNATURES
DEEP IMMUNE PROFILING OF AN ARGININE-ENRICHED NUTRITIONAL INTERVENTION IN PATIENTS UNDERGOING SURGERY

PATIENT-SPECIFIC IMMUNE STATES BEFORE SURGERY ARE STRONG CORRELATES OF SURGICAL RECOVERY
PREFERENTIAL INHIBITION OF ADAPTIVE IMMUNE SYSTEM DYNAMICS BY GLUCOCORTICOIDS IN PATIENTS AFTER ACUTE SURGICAL TRAUMA
ONGOING CLINICAL TRIAL
Research validating our approach
Immune system modulation by an enhanced vs. a standard prehabilitation program in patients undergoing elective major surgery - a prospective, monocentric, randomized, single-blinded, controlled trial.
To assess, in comparison to a standard prehabilitation program, the added benefit of this personalized, health-optimization program combining one-on-one coaching, tailored to each patient's baseline to patients' immune state prior to elective, major abdominal surgery under general anesthesia.
NUMBER OF PATIENTS TO BE INCLUDED
16 months, started October 1, 2020
