For the development of a highly accurate imaging diagnostic for Alzheimers Disease.

, for the development of a highly accurate imaging diagnostic for Alzheimer’s Disease. Abiant, a held company privately, is dedicated to the use of neuroimaging to improve the procedure and medical diagnosis of neurologic and neuropsychiatric disorders. Abiant’s diagnostic approach combines key developments in the analysis of Positron Emission Tomography images of the brain. The to begin these was developed by Lisa Mosconi, PhD, Henry Rusinek, PhD, and Wai Tsui, PhD at the NYU College of Medicine’s Center for Brain Wellness, directed by Mony de Leon, PhD.It suggests some kind of really aggressive process destroying those cells. However, the researchers didn’t find evidence of inflammation or an autoimmune assault on the islet cells, mainly because happens with human beings. Kushner said it’s possible they were looking too late in the course of the disease to start to see the autoimmune strike, and that remains an open analysis question. The analysis authors also found a siginificant difference in the makeup of the islet cells. In human beings without diabetes, beta cells constitute more than 50 % of the islet cells slightly. In healthy dogs, the researchers found that islet cells were made up of about 80 % beta cells. This finding could explain why dogs develop diabetes at such an older age.
