DETERMINATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL ALZHEIMER’S RISK

Alzheimer Sensor

The Alzheimer’s sensor provides information on the individual risk of Alzheimer’s disease and helps to prevent it.

When memory slowly fades

Alzheimer’s disease usually occurs in people over the age of 65. The disease causes an increasing death of some regions of the brain and leads to a progressive loss of cognitive abilities.

The first symptoms, such as occasional problems with short-term memory or understanding speech, can become apparent around eight years before a reliable diagnosis is possible. Of the 24 million dementia patients worldwide, about 60 percent suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.

Genetic predisposition to Alzheimer’s disease

So far, it is not exactly clear what causes Alzheimer’s disease. However, we know that certain genetic defects can significantly increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Therefore, an analysis of the relevant genes can help to determine the probability of contracting Alzheimer’s disease. The insights gained can then be used, among other things, to take appropriate precautionary measures at an early stage.

How our Alzheimer Sensor works

For our Alzheimer Sensor, our laboratory analyses the sample sent in. In this context, the two gene variants that are known to play a major role in the individual risk of Alzheimer’s are investigated.

The results can be used to determine the likelihood that a patient will develop Alzheimer’s disease and what measures should be taken concerning the intake of antioxidants and the general diet.

Once the analysis has been successfully completed, we summarise the test results in a concise written report and make concrete recommendations for effective prevention.

In this way, our Alzheimer Sensor can help to identify existing risks at an early stage and adapt personal lifestyles accordingly.

The Alzheimer Sensor at a glance:

  • Analysis of the two gene variants relevant to the risk of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Verification of the tolerability of 75 important drugs
  • Reliable test execution in our laboratory
  • Written evaluation of the test results
  • Individual recommendations for effective prevention

After a successful analysis, we summarize the individual results in a detailed result report – similar to the one shown in this demo.
