Next generation diagnostic testing to measure vascular brain health

The maintenance of excellent brain health is the greatest public health challenge of the 21 st century. At Sage Cerebro, we seek to advance early detection of vascular brain injury to reduce the risk of stroke, dementia, and cognitive impairment.

  • 1 in 20 deaths caused by strokes
  • 50 M people diagnosed with dementia
  • 22% of people live with cognitive impairment


Evaluating Brain Function

There are over 400 miles of blood vessels in the human brain that constantly regulate brain function and health. The role of the brain’s extensive vascular tree in regulating neurologic diseases like stroke and dementia is increasingly recognized. In the US alone, chronic cerebrovascular disease affects up to 11 million people and increases the risk of stroke and dementia contributing to $300 billion in annual healthcare costs.
