Nymox Files PMA Amendment with FDA for Alzheimer Urine Test.
The urine NTP test kit is a kit version of the Company's AlzheimAlert(TM) test and is designed for sale to clinical laboratories and hospitals for on-site testing of patient urine samples using the kit.
The NTP test is a non-invasive urine test intended to help physicians in the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. The test measures the level of a brain protein called neural thread protein (NTP) known to be elevated in the urine of patients with Alzheimer's disease. There is an extensive scientific and medical literature on NTP and its relationship to Alzheimer's disease and on its clinical accuracy and utility as an aid to the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. Publications include, for example, Journal of Alzheimer's Disease (2004; 6(3): 231-42) and (2001; 3: 345-353); Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences (2003; 60: 2679-91) and (2001; 58: 844-849); Alzheimer's Reports (2002; 1: 1-6); Neurology & Clinical Neurophysiology (2002; 1: 2-7); Frontiers in Bioscience (2002; 7:d989-96); Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology (2001; 60: 195-207) and (1996; 55: 1038-1050); Neurology (2000; 55: 1068) and (2000; 54: 1498-1504); Alzheimer's Reports (2001; 4: 61-65), (2000; 3: 177-184) and (1999; 2: 327-332); Journal of Clinical Laboratory Analysis (1998; 12: 285-288) and (1998; 12: 223-226); Journal of Contemporary Neurology (1998; 4A: 2-6); and Journal of Clinical Investigation (1997; 100: 3093-3104).
