Study into Way of Detecting Alzheimer’s via Eye Scans Goal of Optina Diagnostics, Wagner Center Partnership
Laying the foundation for what could be a pivotal clinical trial into Alzheimer’s (AD) detection, Optina Diagnostics and Wagner Macula & Retina Center will collaborate on a "real-world" study aimed at advancing Optina’s retinal deep phenotyping platform. “It brings together a whole new paradigm for the way we think about, how we diagnose and how we understand brain health and Alzheimer’s,” said David Lapointe, Optina Diagnostics CEO, in a press release about the agreement. “This is the first market readiness collaboration where Optina will deploy its exclusive eye clinic program and retinal deep phenotyping platform in a community setting. It will prepare the ground for additional prime eye clinics locations across the United States to develop a brain health expertise.” A clinical trial (NCT03420807) into this platform, sponsored by Optina, is underway in Canada in people with probable Alzheimer's, mild cognitive impairment, and healthy volunteers to test its ability to detect beta-amyloid plaques though retina imaging.
