Date:5/27/2009

was also achieved for the early diagnosis of AD (within the first four years of memory loss symptoms). Clinical diagnosis, as confirmed by autopsy, is considerably less accurate in diagnosing AD at such early stages. The BRNI biomarker showed high accuracy when tested with human skin cells from a tissue bank, as well as for samples obtained from the patients with autopsy-confirmed diagnoses.

"Ultimately, the goal of the Blanchette Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute (BRNI) is to cure Alzheimer's disease, and the path to a cure begins with detecting the disease early," said Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), who founded BRNI in honor of his mother. "I applaud the Inverness-BRNI partnership for advancing this research, and I'm deeply proud of the work that goes on every day in West Virginia at BRNI to get us closer to a greater understanding of the disease and a cure."
