A group at the Delaware Biotechnology Institute is now working on a diagnostic test that would be as simple as checking a blood sugar level. to see whether or not a person has Alzheimer's disease. The scientists are working on new technological procedures to discover useful diagnostic tests for Alzheimer's disease. They are also working on methods to evaluate the usability of potential drug treatments.
Because of more diagnostic accuracy, there will be improved patient care and better research toward the discovery of new drugs. As a result, the research laboratory at the University of Deleware is working on the development of next-generation tools for protein profiling.
