Cognitive impairment is a medical condition in which people lose their cognitive capabilities such as thinking skills and memory. People having cognitive impairment are at high risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Cognitive impairment that affects memory is known as amnestic mild cognitive impairment (MCI); and the condition which affects thinking skills called nonamnestic MCI. Medical professionals diagnose cognitive impairment by asking some questions which are related to medical history, daily activities, for the assessment of the mental status of the patients. Certain blood tests and brain structure’s imaging are also used to diagnose cognitive impairment.
AgeneBio Inc., Heptares Therapeutics Ltd., Omeros Corporation, and Asceneuron SA are some major companies involved in development of drugs for the management of cognitive impairment. For instance, AgeneBio Inc. is in the process of developing AGB101, a SV2A protein modulator, for the management of cognitive impairment.
