Re: Celebration Thread! Biogen is going to the FDA with Aducan.

I wish I had time to comb through J11's comments after reading this NY Time article, but my morning coffee cup is empty, which means I need to move on. Based on this NY Times article I just read, I lean to it not being worth approving aducanumab: F.D.A. Panel Declines to Endorse Controversial Alzhei...

I was thinking that too just after my post. Context is everything.

Re: PrecivityAD blood test cost

I was thinking it might be useful not as an AD diagnostic but to track lifestyle changes? That info about how they would interpret the results is useful too.

Re: PrecivityAD blood test cost

Here’s more about this test. I’ll probably wait until full validation, which if successful may make it coverable by insurance, maybe at least with prior auth for higher risk patients. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/alzheimers-drug-discovery-foundation-announces-major-funding-commitment-to-...

Re: FDA Breakthrough Status for Transcranial Electromagnetic Treatment (TEMT)

This is interesting, but I can’t help but wonder what other molecules in the subjects’ brains are breaking apart and possibly with adverse consequences, simultaneous endpoints that are’t being studied.

Re: $100 Full Genome Sequencing

Hi J11. I’m also interested at the $100 price point. I wish I could help kick the tires but I’m swamped from 4+ years of nonstop caregiving (handling cases 2 and 3 now) and my personal affairs and psyche are completely down the drain for it. Hopefully I’ll find some more info here when I can turn my...

Re: Non-Bluetooth Sleep Trackers

I am wearing the FitBit Versa 2 which is unfortunately bluetooth connected but the information on oxygen levels is mind boggling. In addition to basic sleep information and with the premium option, I now track an average nightly Sp02 level and it also shows me the Estimated Oxygen Variation (low vs...
