PWRM had just recently has unexpectedly discovered new and unprecedented findings regarding clinically important differences in the response of the NuroPro protein biomarkers in the blood of untreated Alzheimer’s disease patients compared to patients treated with the widely used anti-dementia drugs Aricept (Donepezil HCl, Pfizer – NYSE: PFE), Exelon (Rivastigmine, Novartis – NYSE: NVS), and Namenda (Memantine HCl, Forest Laboratories – NYSE: FRX). These results relate to the genetically distinct groups of Alzheimer’s disease patients, i.e., those individuals who possess the Alzheimer’s high-risk gene for Apolipoprotein E4 and those who do not possess the gene. PWRM’s NuroPro was originally indicated for diagnostics to determine whether or not a patient had Alzheimer’s disease. With these results, PWRM’s NuroPro now extends into the pharmaceutical arena due to its ability to predict and monitor the response to drug treatment, including the underlying disease process and the insidious progression of irreversible neurological damage, even in the face of temporary improvements in cognition and other symptoms.
