Oxford Brain Diagnostics
Oxford Brain Diagnostics has developed a tool that can diagnose Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia up to three years before current clinical methods.
In healthy people, brain circuits form regularly spaced vertical columns of cells, which have been shown to become disarrayed in dementia patients. Using data from diffusion MRI techniques, the Company has developed a software solution to identify the structural degradation of these microcircuits, and have proven them to be strongly correlated to disease staging in various forms of dementia. As such, the technology provides an early objective measure of disease and disease progression to initially support clinical trial recruitment and endpoints followed by clinical use diagnostics.
