Georgia Public Broadcasting featured a story this week about how the Syn-One Test helped Dr. Daniel Cobb, owner of The Neuro Center in Gainesville, Georgia, provide a diagnosis to Chris Griffin, a patient who was experiencing troubling and unexplained symptoms.
Dr. Cobb notes that before the Syn-One Test, a neurologist might have to follow a patient’s case for years or experiment with a medication before they could provide a patient with answers. In these difficult-to-diagnose cases, the minimally invasive Syn-One Test can provide visual proof of a misfolded form of the alpha-synuclein protein, which helps clinicians diagnose conditions like Parkinson’s disease and dementia with Lewy bodies.
Griffin expressed relief at receiving his diagnosis. “…now (that) I could name my demon, I could fight my demon.”
