Drs. Pravin Khemani and Michael Elliot from Swedish Neuroscience Institute in Seattle, Washington, published a case study last month in Parkinsonism and Related Disorders that highlights the role of the Syn-One Test in distinguishing overlapping clinical phenotypes of synucleinopathies from non-synucleinopathies.
The methodology behind the Synuclein-One Study, the largest study to date of cutaneous phosphorylated alpha-synuclein detection, was published this month in Biomarkers in Medicine by CND Life Sciences’ senior scientific advisors Dr. Christopher Gibbons and Dr. Roy Freeman and members of CND’s scientific team, Todd Levine, MD and Bailey Bellaire.
CND Life Sciences is pleased to announce the next webinar in our Tuesday Night Talks series. Todd Levine, MD, CND’s Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer
welcomes special guest Stuart H. Isaacson, MD, FAAN, Director of the Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Center of Boca Raton, FL to discuss the role and importance of alpha-synuclein as a key
More than 300 million people, or 5% of the worldwide population, are living with a rare disease, defined as a disease that affects fewer than 200,000 people at any given time. Those with rare diseases are often misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all, which makes it nearly impossible to find the right care.
CND Life Sciences recently welcomed Senior Pathologist & Medical Director, Janine Feng, MD and Senior Pathologist, Dana Haydel, MD to our team. We’re excited to introduce these highly experienced physicians to help lead our clinical pathology, research, and innovation programs.
Arriving at a definitive diagnosis of any given neurodegenerative condition is not always easy. Recent studies have shown that even in the hands of the best movement disorder specialists, patients diagnosed
with Parkinson’s disease who come to autopsy show no evidence of Lewy bodies and have an alternate diagnosis 30% of the time. Similar data exist for patients with multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and immune-mediated neuropathies. These data tell us that clinical diagnostic skills and tests cannot always accurately distinguish the varied forms of neurodegenerative diseases.
A core value at CND Life Sciences is being clinician-minded. We are founded by practicing neurologists and we are dedicated to helping clinicians care for patients facing a possible diagnosis of a neurodegenerative disease. While the biopsy procedure is straight-forward, we understand that not all neurologists have performed skin biopsies.
