Diagnostic tool to detect emerging Alzheimer's disease
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is not curable at the final stages, but early detection and treatment could provide significant therapeutic and societal benefits. Treatment started at the early stages could either slow down or even cure AD, dramatically reducing healthcare costs. Norwegian company Pre Diagnostics is working to create a diagnostic tool to identify patients at the earliest stages before AD is evident. The accurate and cost-effective blood biomarker detection tool will directly analyse patients’ brain metabolism and detect reduced clearance of beta-amyloid, which is the earliest signal in AD pathology. The EU-funded VERDAD project will provide support for the final regulatory steps in the development of the novel tool and prepare it for the market.
