How Orion Empowers Research
Early detection of debilitating disease
▸ Five million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, one million from Parkinson’s, and 30,000 from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
▸ An estimated 400,000 Americans exit the workforce due to multiple sclerosis (MS), a disease whose onset afflicts younger populations.
▸ Studying the deep layers of the retina offer a ‘window to the brain’ and can potentially detect and diagnose these disease at an early stage.
