Readout Health, a digital biomarker startup, announced partnership with Apollo Health, a health technology leader in neurodegenerative medicine. Apollo Health has created the first online community of specially trained healthcare practitioners and participants partnering to use a science-based protocol demonstrated to prevent and reverse cognitive decline. As part of its program, Apollo Health recommends nutritional ketosis and the KetoFLEX 12/3 diet developed by noted neurologist and Alzheimer's researcher Dr. Dale Bredesen and the team at Apollo Health.

Readout Health's flagship product, BIOSENSE™, is a non-invasive clinical-grade breath ketone monitoring solution. A recent peer-reviewed publication outlined the clinical trial of BIOSENSE in tracking all-day ketosis and highlighted the requirement for more frequent measurements for accurate and personalized metabolic responses. BIOSENSE is a handheld breath meter, classified as an FDA Class 1 medical device, manufactured in St. Louis.

Readout Health patented a deep lung sampling process to secure strong acetone concentrations in breath for a high level of clinical accuracy to use as an alternative to blood BHB measurements.  Designed for unlimited measurements for stronger resolution, BIOSENSE™ is currently used in several protocols for in-home testing and qualifies for remote patient monitoring (RPM) reimbursement. The partnership will include BIOSENSE™ measurements and trends to be integrated into Apollo's ReCODE mobile application.

Jim Howard, CEO, Readout: "Dr. Bredesen and team are pioneers in novel approaches to neurodegenerative diseases. We are committed and BIOSENSE is uniquely positioned to bring transparency to both participants and their care teams for stronger adherence and better outcomes. This represents strategic progress in our goal to support the research of therapeutic nutritional ketosis research in chronic disease management."

Dale Bredesen, Chief Science Officer, Apollo Health: "We're excited to announce our partnership and sincerely hope that the BIOSENSE Breath Ketone Meter will offer participants an easier and more accurate way to track ketones, ensuring better compliance with the protocol."
