2007ResearchThe novel mechanism was discovered. It explains how an aneurysm is created and grows and at the same time makes a diagnostic blood test possible.
2017Proof of concept100 preliminary blood tests prove the concept of the novel mechanism.
2018International PatentWe applied for acquiring an international patent regarding the novel mechanism that describes the way an aneurysm is created and grows. PCT/EP2018/062897.

2020GrowingMoving towards CE Certification under the IVDR 2017/746 Regulation for the diagnostic blood test that detects the aortic aneurysm.
Stavros Toumpoulis, DDS
Founder & President
Stavros is CEO and founder of 2bullMeDiTherapy, which was founded in 2016 with the purpose of offering a wide range of effective diagnostic and therapeutic solutions. Through modern research, technology and the discovery of innovative biological mechanisms we target the creation of new diagnostic blood tests which can detect diseases at an early stage when they are easier to be cured.
Also, our goal is to create diagnostic tests that can predict possible complications which may arise after thoracic surgery.
