BRC researchers develop a new rapid test for Alzheimer’s and Lewy Body Dementia

National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) BRC (Biomedical Research Centre) researchers, working in collaboration with the BRC at NIHR Queen Square Dementia and the Wolfson Biomarker Dementia consortium at Institute of Neurology (IoN), have developed a new test to diagnose different types of dementia, which they hope will allow for more reliable and accurate diagnosis of the neurodegenerative conditions of Lewy Body Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
