About us

BrainDTech is a startup focused on the early detection and monitoring of neurological and neurodegenerative diseases in liquid biopsies, based on miRNA from microglial microvesicles.

Our technology

Before a neurodegenerative disease can be treated, it needs to be detected. Today, in most brain diseases, diagnosis relies largely on observing clinical symptoms, which occur when the neurodegeneration has already caused irreversible damages.

The earlier, the better

BrainDTech has discovered and patented a method for diagnosis, prognosis and treatment monitoring of neurodegenerative, neurological and inflammatory diseases based on miRNA inside microglia microvesicles, a new molecular mechanism which occurs in the very early stages of neuroinflammation.

The approach

Inflamed microglia release microvesicles, which can be collected from liquid biopsies. These microvesicle contain miRNAs, and the miRNA content changes inside microvesicles depending on the disease: there is a specific miRNA signature for each pathology.
The comprehension of these patterns enables unprecedent level of comprehension of brain disease scenarios.
