Sitilop is collaborating with Life Molecular Imaging and Invicro on a new way of evaluating Tau depositions in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy
Progressive Supranuclear Palsy is a rare neurodegenerative disorder characterised by the presence of 4-repeat tau pathology. Progressive Supranuclear Palsy is regarded as a spectrum of different phenotypes characterised by predominant motor, cognitive, speech, or behavioural impairment. No therapy is available for this disease and symptomatic treatment offers only limited benefit. Sitilop is collaborating with Life…Details
Sitilop is collaborating with Life Molecular Imaging on a new way of evaluating Tau depositions in Alzheimer’s disease
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia worldwide. It is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder for which we currently have no cure or disease modifying therapies to slow disease progression. Alzheimer’s disease is often preceded by a prodromal phase called mild cognitive impairment which is characterised by decline in cognitive performance. Neuropathological hallmarks of…Details
