Greek Scientists Design Early Diagnosis Protocol for Alzheimer's Disease

Scientists from the Ionian University of Corfu designed an early diagnosis protocol for Alzheimer’s disease promoting the prevention and more effective treatment of the degenerative disease.
This early diagnosis tool is the first to be developed worldwide and domestic and foreign pharmaceutical companies have already expressed their interest.
As explained by the head of the research team and deputy professor of the Ionian University Panayiotis Vlamos, the team discovered last year the “electric thrombosis” phenomenon, a mechanism that explains a series of dysfunctions in the inner membrane of mitochondria, affecting their quantity and function related to Alzheimer’s disease.
According to Vlamos, this innovative tool can be applied to each patient individually according to their personal data and the cost is very low. However, despite the fact that the research results have been widely accepted by the scientific community and various industries of the field, the respective bodies in Greece have not yet shown similar interest in exploiting the results.
“We do not wish to commercialize the research findings but rather promote and elaborate them in a modern and fully equipped lab within Greece,” noted Dr. Thanos Alexiou of Bioinformatics at the Ionian University.
