“The immune system sees things before the physical manifestation of the disease.”
Getting an MS diagnosis has been more about exclusion than a definitive answer. Until now. IQuity, Inc. has cracked the code. They introduced a simple blood test that provides an answer in a week with a better than 90 percent accuracy rate! This. Is. Big.
Most of us with an MS diagnosis went through a battery of tests – including a lumbar puncture – to settle on a diagnosis of MS likelihood. And even that could take years to get. Listen as IQuity, Inc. CEO Chase Spurlock and CFO and Chief Strategy Officer Julia Polk describe the process of discovering this amazing technology, and all of the potential it has for revolutionizing diagnostics for Multiple Sclerosis and other previously difficult to diagnose diseases.
