AI-analyzed blood test can predict the progression of neurodegenerative disease

New technique could be used to choose best therapies for patients and measure their effectiveness

Evaluating the effectiveness of therapies for neurodegenerative diseases is often difficult because each patient’s progression is different. A new study shows artificial intelligence (AI) analysis of blood samples can predict and explain disease progression, which could one day help doctors choose more appropriate and effective treatments for patients.
