Company Summary

Alzeca Biosciences is developing ADx, an imaging agent used to detect early stage Alzheimer's Disease. Alzeca's primary goal is to diagnose Alzheimer's early enough, where lifestyle changes (diet, exercise) and therapeutics can still be beneficial. A second benefit of the ADx platform is to more effectively monitor the effectiveness of therapies under development, while enabling more accurate screening of Alzheimer's patients in drug trials.
