Clin Chem Lab Med - Mansilla et al. 2023

Stability of plasma samples and Alzheimer’s biomarkers Alzheimer’s disease is considered one of the most common causes of dementia in the elderly. Recently, blood biomarkers: Aβ1-42, Aβ1-40 and phospho Tau181 (p-Tau181), are proving useful in the diagnosis of the disease in research studies, but their analytical stability is unknown. A joint study between the Memory … Read more

Multimarker synaptic panels for FTD

Multimarker panels in FTD Frontotemporal dementia is the most common cause of early-onset dementia and the principal cause of FrontoTemporal Lobular Degeneration (FTLD). Approximately, 90–95% of FTLD cases are characterized by the accumulation in the brain of two different proteins – tau and transactive response DNA-binding protein-43 (TDP-43). These protein inclusions lead to a loss of … Read more
