Description

This invention provides an ultrasensitive assay for GFAP and other biomarkers of TBI to
accurately detect or measure biomarkers of mild, moderate and severe TBI. Further, it provides a
means to monitor or prevent sequelae of TBI, helping to triage and guide the treatment of TBI
afflicted individuals of varying severity.

Applications

  • Accurate methods for diagnosing, prognosing, monitoring recovery from and assessing traumatic brain injury (TBI)

Advantages

  • The assay can be combined with APOE4+ allele screening for improved diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring of recovery

Stage of Development

Preclinical
