Amoneta Diagnostics and AD Data Initiative

announce "ADDIA Data on AD Workbench" !


Together, Amoneta Diagnostics and the AD Data Initiative announce a collaboration to make data from ADDIA, a multicentric clinical study supporting biomarker R&D for Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and other dementia, available to all researchers for advanced analysis.


The ADDIA dataset, now available on the AD Workbench, will empower researchers to unlock new insights, fostering progress in diagnosis and understanding of various forms of dementia. This collaboration between Amoneta Diagnostics and the AD Data Initiative underscores a shared commitment to advance ADRD data sharing, research, and diagnostics.

About the Dataset
The ADDIA dataset version 1 offers a comprehensive array of data collected from 207 subjects across 13 clinical centers of excellence in five European countries (Belgium, France, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey). The dataset includes subjects with mild, and moderate-severe AD, non-AD dementia (including FTD, DLB, PSP, PDD, CBD), and healthy controls.


Researchers will have access to a wealth of data for advanced analysis related to dementia diagnoses and differential diagnosis between dementia types. The available data encompasses demography, vital signs, physical exam details, functional tests (MMSE and MoCA), FCSRT questionnaires, nervous system findings from 147 brain regions (MRI), and essential laboratory findings such as CSF Amyloid Beta 1-42, total Tau Protein, and Phosphorylated Tau Protein.


The dataset also contains genomic and transcriptomics findings (available on request).




More about ADDIA Study
The ADDIA consortium, coordinated by Amoneta Diagnostics, conducted a multicentric clinical study (NCT03030586), which enrolled 821 subjects from 13 clinical centers of excellence in five European countries (FR, BE, IT, CH, TR), making it possible to collect high quality biological samples and associated laboratory, imaging and clinical data from well characterized healthy subjects, patients suffering from Alzheimer disease (mild- and moderate to severe-stages) and patients suffering from five other dementia types (FTD, PDD, DLB, CBD and PSP).

More about Alzheimer’s Disease Data Initiative
The Alzheimer’s Disease Data Initiative (AD Data Initiative) is a coalition of leading academic, advocacy, government, industry, and philanthropy organizations that recognizes the need for dementia researchers to find easier ways to share unpublished data, analytical tools, and scientific findings. The AD Data Initiative offers researchers around the world secure data sharing and collaboration resources, available to users at no cost. The AD Data Initiative supports collaborative partnerships that enable researchers to advance scientific breakthroughs and accelerate discoveries in new diagnostics, treatments, and cures for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

ADDIA (a Horizon 2020 SME Project) Closing Meeting held in Paris


The ADDIA consortium, a Horizon 2020 Project, comprising Amoneta & Firalis teams and all the clinical investigators and/or their colleagues representing the 13 clinical sites participating to patient recruitment in ADDIA study, met for the project closing meeting, a whole-day event held in Paris, on July 26, 2019.


The ADDIA consortium discussed the results which have been obtained so far, regarding the diverse peripheral biomarker classes generated by Amoneta teams, and decided the next steps.


As the teams prepare for the final reporting to be submitted to the European Commission (Horizon 2020), the members of the ADDIA Consortium, being a success story already, have agreed to pursue this fully established and highly performant network for further collaboration. Preparations are being finalized for the analysis of the data on biomarkers, which will be conducted by the statistics experts of Amoneta and Firalis during September and October 2019. The CE-marking of the most accurate biomarker-based in-vitro-diagnostic test(s) are planned from 4Q2019, with several peer-reviewed articles to be co-published by the consortium members in international journals during 4Q2019 and 2020.

SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN Article points to the need for

New Biomarkers to diagnose Alzheimer's Disease in blood


The Scientific American published an article written by Dr. Howard Fillit, the Founding Executive Director and Chief Science Officer at the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF), one of the most acknowledged Key Opinion Leaders in the field of Alzheimer's Disease.


The article points to the unmet need for blood biomarkers for an inexpensive and noninvasive clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease. According to Dr. Fillit, such a test would not only facilitate the diagnosis but also stimulate better treatments for the Alzheimer's Disease, for which (in sharp contrast to other illnesses and despite many efforts as well as huge expenses and hundreds of clinical trials), no new treatment have been approved in the past 16 years.

This article confirms, the real value of ADDIA, a blood diagnostic test based on a combination of 2 biomarkers. ADDIA is a multicentric proof-of-performance biomarker study, funded by the European Union Horizon-2020 Program.
