Akili Interactive Labs, Inc. Announces Partnership with Pfizer Inc. to Test Video Game in People at Risk of Alzheimer's Disease

Akili Interactive Labs Inc. announced that it has entered into an agreement with Pfizer Inc. to test the ability of Akili's mobile video game platform to detect cognitive differences in healthy elderly people at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Under the agreement, Pfizer will conduct a clinical trial that will evaluate healthy elderly subjects with and without the presence of amyloid in their brains, as determined by Positron Emission Tomography imaging. Approximately 100 individuals are expected to be enrolled with their cognitive abilities assessed both at baseline, and over the course of one month of game play. The goal of the trial is to investigate the Akili game as a biomarker or clinical endpoint for potential use in future Alzheimer's trials. The Akili video game platform is designed to quantify and improve the ability of individuals to deal with cognitive interference (distractions and interruptions), which impacts their ability to pay attention, plan and make decisions. Such deficits are common symptoms of many degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, as well as psychiatric conditions such as ADHD, autism and depression.
