Basically, instead of waiting to detect the cancer itself when its just about late in the game, it detects how the immune system reacts to the cancer. This leads to a much earlier diagnosis.

That's because big pharma companies have a better shot at succeeding in clinical trials. The failure rate for developing drugs to treat Alzheimer's is low, but the problem is acquisition costs of patients and recruit patients who definitely have the disease. Also as Herman says to get an earlier diagnosis would mean that someone with Alzheimer's stands a better shot at being treated.
