Brno, September 22 (BD) – A screening test for the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease is made available to the public at the hospital pharmacy of St. Anne’s University Hospital in Brno. This simple and quick form of screening can detect initial degenerative changes in the brain, which most often manifest as a decline in cognitive function.

The consultation consists of two simple tests aimed at detecting the early signs of the disease, such as disturbances in concentration, memory, speech or spatial orientation. “Screening aims to detect any changes in short-term memory. The memory tests were developed specifically for pharmacy use in conjunction with the National Institute of Mental Health, and the results can be interpreted by the pharmacist immediately upon completion. If necessary, they can prepare a report for the attending physician,” said Dr. Veronika Čillíková, the project’s chief expert.
