Patent for License:

Technique to Detect Brain Disorders    

Using labelled acyl-L-carnitine as a diagnostic agent.

Overview

The technique provides the possibility of diagnosing various diseases caused by acyl-carnitine metabolic disorder or abnormal uptake, or diseases due to cerebral structural or functional disorder. By measuring the behavior of acyl-L-carnitine in urine or blood, and determining localization of the acyl-L-carnitine in biological tissue via in vivo imaging by the PET method, MRI or MRS. It is possible to obtain information about the progress of therapeutic actions, thereby allowing optimization of therapy.

Primary Application of the Technology

Easily and accurately inspect occurrence, or risk of wasting diseases like - chronic fatigue syndrome, vascular disorder, diseases falling under acyl-carnitine metabolic deficient syndrome (ACMDS) e.g. stress diseases, cerebral diseases such as cerebral infarction, cerebral thrombosis and senile cerebral functional disorders.
