VoxNeuro Inc., a Hamilton-based commercial stage Software-as-a-Medical-Device (SaMD) brain health company that analyzes brain biomarkers to assess cognitive function, announced a new partnership with Boston University (“BU”), a world-class institution and private research university at the forefront of neuroscience and neurotechnology.
In partnership with BU, VoxNeuro has launched two studies that will evaluate its cognitive health assessment platform in an outpatient setting to assess diagnostic accuracy. The studies will focus on patients suffering from mild-Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI)/Concussion and Alzheimer’s disease, respectively.
On a combined basis, mTBI/Concussion and Alzheimer’s disease affect over ten million Americans annually, and the inefficiencies of current behavior-based screening methodologies results in considerable excess cost and time to patients, clinicians and the healthcare system. VoxNeuro’s cognitive health software is expected to provide additive diagnostic information to improve clinical management beyond traditional testing methods. This represents a significant step forward for brain health as VoxNeuro provides for better identification and management strategies.
VoxNeuro anticipates that this will continue to enhance its market awareness and will improve the ability of clinicians to accurately diagnose, treat, and aid in the management of patients suffering from mTBI/Concussion and Alzheimer’s disease. The Company also anticipates that this work may support new regulatory filings with the FDA and Health Canada.
