George Washington University Offers the MEND™ Protocol for Alzheimer’s Disease

George Washington University Center for Integrative Medicine
Collaborates with Muses Labs to Advance Care for Alzheimer’s Disease

RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AlzheimersMuses
announced today that it has partnered with the George
Washington Center for Integrative Medicine (GWCIM) to offer the MEND™
to patients located in Washington, DC. This agreement
allows individuals with pre- and early-symptomatic cognitive decline, as
well as mild Alzheimer’s disease patients, to benefit from the MEND
Protocol via the Center’s Mental Health program operated in
collaboration with the George Washington University Memory Clinic.

The MEND Protocol is a data driven, technology enabled, personalized
methodology to correctly identify and simultaneously treat the dozens of
pathology drivers of age-related cognitive decline. The MEND Protocol is
designed to help patients who are beginning to have symptoms of
age-related cognitive decline, those with a family history of dementia
and patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease. The Protocol recommends
optimal medical interventions personalized for each patient and has the
potential to improve memory and cognitive function. The MEND Protocol is
an emerging methodology that reflects a new approach to addressing
complex diseases.

At the GWCIM, a team of doctors, nutritionists, physical trainers,
coaches and experts in lifestyle medicine collaborate to provide
comprehensive care to patients. The Center is dedicated to creating a
healing environment in which patients have access to medical doctors and
a variety of complementary and alternative therapies to promote healing
and wellness. It provides a health care program based in science and
tradition, where the patient is treated as a whole person and respected
as an individual.

“Our guiding principles center on personal empowerment and
responsibility, helping our team of providers develop care plans
tailored to fit individual needs,” said Mikhail Kogan, MD, Medical
Director, GWCIM. “These principles are a natural fit with Muses Labs’
mission and vision of working collaboratively with patients, caregivers
and providers in a data-driven manner to address the underlying drivers
of cognitive decline unique to each patient — to improve outcomes.”

“The Center for Integrative Medicine extends leadership in their
community through their work with Muses Labs,” said Vik Chandra, CEO,
Muses Labs. “Our work with the GWCIM and Dr. Kogan benefits patients
today and will further enhance the MEND Protocol to provide treatment
and support to those who may have lost hope in finding solutions for
cognitive decline, and for additional complex, chronic diseases.”

About George Washington Center for Integrative Medicine

When the GW Center for Integrative Medicine opened its doors to patients
in April 1998, it became one of the few complementary and alternative

center. Its groundbreaking status brought with it the responsibility and
challenge to define integrative medicine (IM) with the highest standards
of medical care. Today the Center for Integrative Medicine provides
comprehensive care for aging-related chronic illnesses, mental health,
women’s health, pain, fatigue and wellness and prevention. For more
