Last week on October 6, 2021, our ZelosDx data was highlighted in a poster presentation given by our Arizona State University collaborator at the 2021 GRAND CHALLENGES IN PARKINSON'S DISEASE Conference. Vladislav Voziyanov, PhD, Graduate Research Assistant at Arizona State University (ASU), presented the poster titled. “Blood Draws to Assess Biomarkers of Inflammation in Peripheral Blood Monocytes in Response to Chronic Implants for Deep Brain Stimulation.” This data in this poster shows that the novel, ZelosDx blood-based assay can detect trace amounts of Glial Fibrillary Acidic in rodent peripheral blood monocytes offering a non-invasive method of measuring inflammation. This work is a part of a collaboration with the laboratory of Dr. Jitendran Muthuswamy at the ASU School of Biological and Health System's Engineering. https://sols.asu.edu/jitendran-muthuswamy
