“The test provides a unique way of screening for cognitive impairment which can be used across the population. In a best case scenario, I think we could see population-wide screening within the next year – and in a worst case, five years,” Cognetivity co-founder Seyed-Mahdi Khaligh-Razavi, told i.
“And with a variety of promising new drugs to treat early stage Alzheimer’s in advanced clinical trials, a screening programme to identify those at high risk is especially timely. The disease can’t be reversed but if you detect it early you have more chance to stop it,” he said.
