The method has been developed by the company in collaboration with researchers and neurologists of the hospital Virgen de las Nieves and Clínico in Granada and of the hospital Ramón y Cajal and La Paz in Madrid.
Thus, Neuron Bio continues developing the marketing process of the AlzTest®, being this one more step in the implementation of the business plan presented recently by the company.
