(businesspress24) - Cognetivity Neurosciences Selected to Present its Landmark Research Data at the Alzheimers Disease International Conference

Vancouver, British Columbia, July 25th, 2018 - Cognetivity Neurosciences Ltd. (the Company or Cognetivity) (CSE: CGN) (FWB:1UB) today announced that it has been invited to present at the Alzheimers Disease International conference in Chicago, USA on July 26th - 29th 2018. Cognetivity has been identified by the events organizers as a highly promising technology company and is presenting in a session titled Innovation Showcase.

Alzheimers Disease International is the international federation of Alzheimer associations around the world, working in conjunction with the World Health Organization. The conference is the longest-running international conference on dementia, and is a unique multi-disciplinary event which unites people with an interest in dementia from around the world including leading research institutions, large pharmaceutical companies and healthcare providers.

In a talk titled Integrated Cognitive Assessment (ICA): Employing Artificial Intelligence for Earliest Diagnosis of Dementia, Cognetivitys Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Chris Kalafatis will present an overview of the companys unique AI-based approach, and deliver positive results that validate the effectiveness of its proprietary Integrated Cognitive Assessment (ICA) platform for early detection of cognitive impairment in populations of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) patients, an important pre-Alzheimers condition.

Dr. Kalafatis presentation will include:

- An overview of the significant problems currently affecting early detection for diseases such as Alzheimers disease
- A technical overview of Cognetivitys ICA platform and why its intrinsic design has significant advantages over other testing methods
- Information on the effectiveness of the ICAs AI engine to improve sensitivity and its ability to be trained using wider data such for improving diagnoses

- Data demonstrating the ICAs validation using current best standard of care tests

Cognetivity will be speaking at the conference alongside companies such as, IKEA, Roche (the worlds largest biotech company) and the World Health Organization.

Cognetivity''s CEO, Dr Sina Habibi said: "We are very happy that our Chief Medical Officer, Chris Kalafatis, has been invited to present Cognetivitys ICA at the Alzheimers Disease International conference. It is one of the highest profile events in the field of Alzheimers research and attracts many of the most prominent individuals and organizations who are tackling the disease. We continue to share our technologies and vision with notable audiences in the fields of cognitive impairment and are extremely encouraged by the response our unique technology receives. There is significant interest and attention currently being placed on the importance of early detection in diseases such as Alzheimers and we are extremely well positioned to make a difference in this area."

The early detection of dementia, in particular Alzheimers disease, is a critical unmet need in healthcare, with a recent Alzheimers Association report stating that the potential savings to healthcare of early dementia diagnosis could be as high as $7.9 trillion in the USA alone. Cognetivitys ICA platform technology is designed to detect some of the earliest signs of cognitive impairment, such as are present in dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders.

Today 50 million people have dementia globally, with 10 million additional cases being recorded annually. This equates to a new case being recorded every three seconds. Currently one out of two sufferers in higher income countries and nine out of 10 cases in lower income countries never receive a formal diagnosis.
