ZRT Laboratory Launches Serum Test for Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF)

ZRT Laboratory is pleased to announce the commercial launch of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) testing in serum. BDNF plays a vital role in protecting existing neurons in the central and peripheral nervous systems. BDNF stimulates the growth and differentiation of new neurons in the brain involved in learning, memory, and higher thinking. Low serum levels of BDNF have been linked with neurodegenerative autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and diseases of the central nervous system including major depression, bipolar disorder, senile dementia, and Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

Also included in the launch is a comprehensive suite of serum steroid, thyroid, and peptide hormones, together with other factors that are key to hormone action and brain health. One of these is Vitamin B12, a key nutrient in which an estimated 20% of the population is deficient but which is vital to a variety of processes in the body. ZRT’s CEO and Founder, David Zava, PhD., announces, “we are intentionally launching BDNF alongside a comprehensive suite of tests for the purpose of deciphering if low BDNF is associated with suboptimal hormone levels and could be raised by correcting hormone imbalances.”

ZRT Laboratory’s mission is to give health care providers a more complete look at their patient’s health and allow for more robust treatment decisions to help curb aging of the brain and peripheral nervous system. When taken in the context of symptoms and clinical conditions, BDNF testing can play a key role in helping patients to modify lifestyle factors and suboptimal hormone levels that have been shown to negatively impact the body’s production of BDNF, and thereby improve the long-term health of their central and peripheral nervous systems to help slow brain aging.
