Proprietary methods to standardize expected values of brain activity pave the way for the development of biomarkers in CNS disorders.

Cambridge, MA, March 4, 2024 – Ceretype Neuromedicine, a pioneer in practical application and integration of functional MRI (fMRI), presented new data at the 20th Annual Meeting of the International Society of CNS Clinical Trials and Methodology (ISCTM) in Washington DC on February 22nd. The poster, entitled ‘Quantitative, Standardized Brain Network Activity Measures to Inform CNS Treatment Development,’ was presented by co-first author, Roni Setton, PhD and can be found here.

“We are pleased to share the groundbreaking methodological work on a novel quantitative imaging strategy,” said Ceretype CTO, Prantik Kundu, PhD. “The findings highlight advances in the sensitivity and reliability of measured brain signal, demonstrating that a robust, standardized measure of brain network activity can be derived from fMRI. This paves the way for discovery of highly sensitive brain-based biomarkers for the development and long-term monitoring of new CNS treatments.”

“This evidence continues to establish Ceretype as a world leader in brain-based biomarker technologies for CNS disorders. I am proud of the solutions that our team has developed to address challenges that have plagued fMRI for decades, opening the door for precision medicine in neuropsychiatry,” said Ceretype’s Co-Founder & CEO Emily Stern, MD.

Since its founding in 2020, Ceretype has partnered with several pharmaceutical and biotech companies to quantitatively analyze the impact of their treatments on the functional networks within patients’ brains.
