Santa Clara – The U.S. semiconductor manufacturer Intel is working again with the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) together for the study of Parkinson’s disease. The aim of the cooperation is that – after Alzheimer world’s most widely used -. Too can investigate and treat neurodegenerative disease of the brain better
The project includes a multi-part study in which a new Big Data analytics platform used comes. You will find patterns in the data of the participants. To monitor the symptoms the information on wearable computers (wearables) are collected. The collaboration was a crucial step that will enable researchers and clinicians to detect the disease course better and so to make significant progress in the development of drugs, Intel wrote in a press release.
New diagnostic possibilities
“Modern methods of data processing and innovative wearable technologies are able to fundamentally change our understanding of how patients actually experience the disease., we have characterized entirely new possibilities in the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson’s disease and in the development of drugs, “says Todd Sherer, CEO of the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
traces of an invisible enemy for nearly 20 years, researchers refine the methods of genomics and proteomics to increasingly sophisticated cell profiles of the disease to develop. The possibility of data from thousands of individuals (slowed movements, …
