Cognivue to Participate in Major Clinical Study with Global Alzheimer’s Platform
First FDA-cleared computerized test of cognitive function will be evaluated in the Bio-Hermes study; seeks to improve identification and screening of patients for early intervention and Alzheimer’s Disease trials
ROCHESTER, N.Y., APRIL 21, 2021—Cognivue, Inc. today announced that its computerized, FDA-cleared technologies and proprietary algorithms have been selected by the Global Alzheimer’s Platform (GAP) to participate in its pioneering Bio-Hermes clinical trial study. Also participating in the study are Eli Lilly & Company, AbbVie, Merck, the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation and other respected biopharma, technology, and nonprofit entities.
Bio-Hermes is the first-ever platform study to investigate and compare blood-based biomarkers, digital markers, and legacy assessments in 1,000 subjects over the age of 60 screened for Preclinical Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), Prodromal AD, or Mild Dementia AD. Use of biomarkers could lead to earlier and more frequent detection of amyloid build-up, prompting those affected to seek early intervention, including participation in clinical trials for Alzheimer’s prevention or treatment.
“We are excited about the collaboration with the Global Alzheimer’s Project and the opportunity to be part of the groundbreaking Bio-Hermes clinical study. This is the first wide-scale application of Cognivue technology along with state-of-the-art frontline diagnostic tools, such as, blood-based biomarkers and brain image scanning. This could be a milestone development to create a gold standard for the future of Alzheimer Disease assessment and diagnostics,” said Tom O’Neill, president and CEO of Cognivue. “Our ability to objectively, quantitatively, and reliably identify cognitive status further assist with the accurate diagnosis for potential cognitive impairment, which can then be treated or managed.”
Cognviue’s technologies are designed to provide healthcare providers a useful tool for cognitive evaluation and diagnosis. The digital system is engineered to eliminate bias and variability throughout the test that establish cognitive baselines and provide a concurrent monitoring vehicle for the evaluation and treatment of cognitive issues over time.
“The Bio-Hermes clinical trial will evaluate the most promising digital and blood biomarker tests, and we’re pleased to have Cognivue as one of our digital assessments for cognitive function,” said John Dwyer, president of the Global Alzheimer’s Platform Foundation. “This self-administered test could allow medical practices in any community to detect cognitive decline and prompt steps to diagnose Alzheimer’s. In turn, that means patients will be able to make timely decisions about treatment or participation in research.”
