ALZpath, Inc. recently announced the launch of its first diagnostic assay for detection of phosphorylated tau 217 (pTau217) in blood. pTau217 is widely considered to be one of the leading transformative Alzheimerâ€™s disease (AD) diagnostic biomarkers by enabling earlier and more accurate AD diagnoses, better stratifying patients for clinical trials, and improving patient outcomes and care. ALZpath is actively working with a wide network of early access collaborators to further develop clinical evidence across diverse patient populations.
ALZpathâ€™s pTau217 assay in blood offers a simple and cost-effective approach to diagnosis, which is less invasive than current testing methods. The ALZpath pTau217 assay is validated and available now for research studies and clinical trials and will be available for clinical use as a laboratory developed test in early 2023.
â€œThis marks a major milestone in the availability of scalable accessible tools for research, clinical trials, and clinical use,â€ said Andreas Jeromin, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer at ALZpath.
ALZpath was founded in 2020 and is a privately held company. The companyâ€™s mission is to transform the Alzheimerâ€™s disease ecosystem by advancing patient care, clinical trials, and research by integrating novel blood-based and other biomarkers, clinical assessment tools, and care solutions. ALZpath has assembled an experienced management team and world-renowned advisory board.
ALZpath recently presented analytical and initial clinical performance data for this novel accessible and scalable assay for pTau217 in blood at the Clinical Trials in Alzheimerâ€™s Disease (CTAD) Conference in San Francisco. The ALZpath leadership team is available for phone or email interviews.
ALZpath was founded in 2020 with the mission of transforming the Alzheimerâ€™s disease ecosystem.
