NEBA Health earns patent for integration of NEBA biomarker with clinician's ADHD evaluation
Date:8/15/2013

BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NEBA Health, LLC announces today that Dr. Steven M. Snyder, Research and Development Vice President, has earned US Patent 8,509,884.  The patent protects a key aspect of the NEBA system:  integrating the biomarker with a clinician's workup for ADHD.  "NEBA is not a standalone diagnostic," said Dr. Snyder.  "After the clinician's ADHD evaluation, NEBA helps them determine if the symptoms are due to ADHD or if further testing is warranted."  

"Integrating the NEBA biomarker with a clinician's initial diagnostic impression can bring a clinician's diagnosis more in line with that of multidisciplinary team," said Dr. Snyder.  Research supports that compared to a clinician alone, a multidisciplinary team is better able to determine if ADHD-like symptoms are accounted for by another condition. 

In order to diagnose ADHD, a clinician not only observes criteria regarding behavioral symptoms and impairment, but also must determine whether symptoms would be better accounted for by another condition.  Because ADHD shares symptoms with other disorders, the diagnosis may be difficult.  According to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 9.5% of all children and adolescents have an ADHD diagnosis.  The ADHD diagnosis rate is increasing.  CDC states that rates of ADHD diagnosis increased an average of 3% per year from 1997 to 2006 and an average of 5.5% per year from 2003 to 2007.

"In their ADHD evaluation, clinicians may be challenged in the current medical environment to determine the primary diagnosis when overlapping symptoms are present," said Howard Merry, President of NEBA Health.  "We are delighted that the USPTO has awarded Dr. Snyder the patent.  It covers NEBA's core technology, and it's another validation point for the 7 years we spent developing and validating NEBA."
