Cumulus Neuroscience to Join Bio-Hermes 2 Study with Funding from the Innovate UK Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) Dementia Mission Project

Published

on

Funded by a nearly £1.2M (~$1.5M USD) award, this research will enable ongoing validation of AccelADx™, a breakthrough screening test for early detection of Alzheimer’s dementia.

BELFAST, Northern Ireland and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Cumulus Neuroscience (Cumulus; The Company), a global digital health company focused on advancing neuroscience clinical trials and patient care through improved data, today announced receipt of funding from Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency, which drives productivity and economic growth by supporting businesses to develop and realise the potential of new ideas.

Funded by Innovate UK’s Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI), this award is focused on enabling organisations with select novel biomarkers to be evaluated as part of the Global Alzheimer’s Platform Foundation (GAP) Bio-Hermes 2 Study. Cumulus will deploy AccelADx in the study, a novel, AI-enabled screening test that detects small, subtle changes in brain waves associated with memory recall. Bio-Hermes 2, which aims to generate data to accelerate the adoption and effective use of biomarkers in the study of Alzheimer’s disease, will investigate the relationship of novel biomarkers to the current gold standard diagnosis across an ethnically diverse population of 1,000 participants in the United States, Canada, and Europe. The data collected in Bio-Hermes 2 will provide a rich dataset on the extent to which digital and other biomarkers can substitute for more labor-intensive clinical exams and expensive positron emission tomography (PET) scans. Importantly, Cumulus will gain access to the full Bio-Hermes 2 dataset and regulatory-standard data to enable subsequent submissions.

“The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s dementia requires detection of changes in brain biology and memory function. While blood tests are emerging to assess biology, physicians still lack accurate tools for detecting changes in cognition and memory, which directly drive loss of independence and reduced quality of life for patients and their caregivers,” said Brian Murphy, PhD, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Cumulus. “Existing written and computerised cognitive tests can yield false results if patients are anxious or do not understand the instructions. Our goal is to help patients and physicians more directly with the AccelADx screening test, which is uniquely scalable, complementary to protein markers, and specific to Alzheimer’s disease. This Innovate UK SBRI award will allow us to validate how well AccelADx works in a large and diverse group of patients, providing critical data to support regulatory approval.”

The Cumulus NeuLogiq™ Platform – which includes a first-in-class FDA-cleared and UKCA-marked dry electrode electroencephalogram (EEG) headset – can track the integrity and connectivity of brain networks. The headset synchronises with tablet-based assessments across multiple domains of brain function for use in-clinic or remotely at-home, allowing for an increased ease-of-use for patients, caregivers, and clinical teams.

“Alzheimer’s dementia is a devastating disease for patients and their families, directly affecting almost 60 million people today. This is a global problem that requires a global solution,” said Dr. George Stothart, senior lecturer, Department of Psychology, University of Bath, inventor of AccelADx, and Research Fellow at Cumulus. “In many cases, symptoms appear very gradually and can be difficult to detect during the early stages of disease. As a result, many patients miss the opportunity to fully benefit from newer treatments focused on slowing disease progression. Quicker, more accurate ways to diagnose dementia are greatly needed so that patients can get treatments earlier and families have an opportunity to plan for the future. We believe AccelADx has the potential to address this substantial unmet need.”

Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that affects brain function, memory, and other cognitive abilities. It is the most common cause of dementia, affecting millions of people worldwide. Symptoms usually develop slowly and worsen over time, including memory loss, confusion, mood swings, changes in behavior and personality, and difficulty with language and communication. Currently, there is no known cure for Alzheimer’s. Today, earlier diagnosis can enable patients to make lifestyle changes, including exercising and decreasing alcohol consumption, both of which have been shown to slow disease progression. In the future, having the ability to diagnose patients earlier may expedite enrollment in clinical studies and the identification of new treatments.

Cumulus supports precision in CNS clinical trials for its industry partners by enabling remote monitoring of patients across multiple domains of brain function. To learn more, visit www.cumulusneuro.com.

Cordova, Tennessee based Buckeye Power Systems, LLC announced its partnership with Cummins Power Generation and a 7-day inflation fighting 5% discount on the popular Cummins 20kW RS20A air-cooled home standby generator. The discount applies for purchases between July 25th and August 1st, 2024.

CORDOVA, Tenn., July 20, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Cordova, Tennessee based Buckeye Power Systems, LLC announced its participation with Cummins Power Generation and its 7-day 5% discount for homeowners on the popular RS20A 20kW HSB air-cooled home standby generator. The discount also applies to the RS20AC kit which includes a 200-Amp Automatic Transfer Switch. The discount applies for purchases between July 25th and August 1st, 2024.

“The 7-day special discount applies to Cummins 20kW air-cooled home standby generator which is also its most popular model.”

David Richey, president of Buckeye Power Systems, said today, “The 7-day special discount applies to Cummins 20kW air-cooled home standby generator which is also its most popular model. The 20kW generator provides whole house coverage for homes up to 2000 square feet. The same generator also provides managed whole house coverage for homes up to 3000 square feet.”

Richey said the Cummins 20kW includes a built-in load management feature which manages the operation of high-power consumers like air conditioners, kitchen ovens, and clothes dryers. “The load management feature prevents certain loads from operating when the generator is already operating at or near peak performance,” Richey continued. “So, the RS20A offers managed whole house coverage for homes up to 3000 square feet.”

When fueled by natural gas, homeowners enjoy an unlimited supply of fuel from their utility supplier, thus eliminating the need for fuel storage. The same generator can also be fueled by liquid-propane (LP). A 5-year manufacturer’s warranty is standard and extended warranty coverage up to 10 years is available as an option.

In the current inflationary economic environment, the price rollback should be warmly welcomed among homeowners looking for special deals on standby power. The Buckeye Power Systems website currently offers the Cummins RS20A for $5,069 with no sales tax in most states, less the $253.45 discount. The Cummins RS20AC kit includes a 200-Amp Automatic Transfer Switch and is offered for $5995 less a $299.75 discount during the 7-day special promotion.

Buckeye Power Systems is also offering a $500 VISA Gift Card for purchase of the two other Cummins air-cooled home standby generators including the 13kW Cummins RS13A and the 17kW Cummins RS17A.
