Blood-based biomarkers in large-scale screening for neurodegenerative diseases

Disease biomarkers are necessary tools that can be employ in several clinical context of use (COU), ranging from the (early) diagnosis, prognosis, prediction, to monitor of disease state and/or drug efficacy. Regarding neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Alzheimer’s disease (AD), a battery of well-validated biomarkers are available, such as cerebrospinal fluid Aβ42 and Tau, or specific neuropathological lesions detected by neuroimaging techniques. However, invasiveness and high cost limit the use of these biomarkers mostly in COUs... see more
