Age-related disorders, CILcare and Amylgen partner to propose unique preclinical models to assess the effects of health solutions on hearing and cognitive functions !
It is established that hearing loss is one of the three major risk factors for dementia and is clearly linked to Alzheimer’s disease, which affects nearly 25 million people around the world, while 466 million people have hearing loss. CILcare, the world- leading CRO specializing in hearing disorders and Amylgen, CRO specializing in neurodegenerative disorders, have decided to combine their expertise to propose unique preclinical tests, which assess both hearing loss and cognitive decline.
“The exploration of the relationship between hearing loss and the onset of Alzheimer’s disease in preclinical phases will likely be key in targeting the right patient population in clinical trials, by means of patient selection based on their hearing status.” says Celia Belline, CEO CILcare
