In CHARTER participants with incidental or contributing conditions, the researchers vised standard NP tests to determine whether they had asymptomatic neurocognitive impairment (impairment that did not interfere significantly with everyday functioning), mild neurocognitive disorder, or HIV-associated dementia.
NP tests are routinely performed in the central laboratory.
Traditional NP tests have been validated for many years, but application to large groups is limited by the time required to perform baseline testing.
The NP test results may be factored into deciding on return to play, although it has not been conclusively demonstrated that NP testing, used in isolation, is an appropriate way to decide when an athlete is safe to return to competition.

In order to achieve these real-world conditions, TERAGO is leveraging the deep functionality of Spirent's AX/4000 platform, which helped them establish a complete suite of 10 Gigabit NP tests.
