Quanterix to Participate in the 15th Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease (CTAD) Task Force
Company to provide industry perspective on the use of emerging blood-based biomarkers tests in Alzheimer’s disease clinical trials.
“The field of Alzheimer’s disease diagnostics and therapeutics has become one of the most exciting areas in all of medical research. This year’s CTAD meeting promises to accelerate the excitement!” said
CTAD is a meeting focused on Alzheimer’s disease therapeutic trials where key leaders in Alzheimer’s disease research from industry and academia form partnerships with the goal of speeding the development of effective treatments to fight the disease. Readouts from several Phase III clinical trials will be presented at this year’s meeting.
“Researchers in the pharmaceutical industry and academia continue to prove the importance of highly sensitive blood-based biomarker tests including pTau-181 and pTau-217, both of which have shown utility in recent Phase III trials,” said
