Randox launches CE marked Alzheimer’s Disease Risk Array

Dementia Action Week is a national event that sees people across the UK taking action to improve the lives of people affected by dementia, as organized by the Alzheimer’s Society.

Dementia is an umbrella term for a range of progressive conditions that affect the brain.

Each type of dementia stops a person’s brain cells (neurons) working properly in specific area and affecting their ability to remember, think and speak cohesively.

It is estimated that one in three people born this year nationwide will develop some form of Dementia at some point in their lives.

A cure for Dementia has unfortunately not yet been developed. However, in the pursuit of a cure, there is things that have the potential to vastly improve the quality of life for those living with these conditions.

Here at Randox, there is a focus on preventative healthcare. Which is why it made sense when Randox partnered with Race Against Dementia for their nominated charity of 2023.

Race Against Dementia is a global charity founded by three-times Formula 1 World Champion Sir Jackie Stewart, OBE – with the aim of funding much needed pioneering research into the prevention and cure of Dementia.

Also, in our work of towards diagnosis and treatments for those living with Dementia conditions, Randox Laboratories have launched a CE marked Alzheimer’s Disease Risk Array.

Alzheimer’s is one of the most common forms of Dementia and is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder, in which parts of the brain are damaged over time.

Randox Laboratories’ Alzheimer’s Disease Risk Array can be used for the direct determination of ApoE4 status from plasma, eliminating the need for genetic testing, assisting in clinical research and personalized medicine strategies.

At Randox, we believe the importance of measuring ApoE4 protein expression in plasma is the way forward to screen those individuals at increased risk of Alzheimer Disease, as new beta amyloid-targeting therapies for this condition are being expected.
