FDG PET revealed the formation of a new functional brain network. It explains clinical improvements noted previously.
What's the use of measuring neurofilament light in blood? The marker could help with AD trial enrollment and measuring drug effects. It could even guide brain-sparing improvements in heart surgery, say researchers at AAIC 18.
Tau’s apparent lockstep with cognitive decline dominated the PET conversation. Piramal flaunted data, and Merck/Cerveau are close behind. A first stab at imaging synapses in the hippocampus drew notice, too.
In patients across a range of neurodegenerative diseases, NfL ramps up in the cerebrospinal fluid. Levels are higher in those with worse disease.
Researchers are applying the proposed 2018 NIA-AA diagnostic criteria to three large, standing cohorts. How did the research framework perform?
An ultrasensitive assay picked up elevated concentrations of N-terminal tau fragments in the blood of people with AD.
Stakeholders have until February 11 to comment on draft FDA guidance for biomarker qualification.
In familial Alzheimer’s disease, rise in NfL in the blood precedes disease onset by 16 years.
A longitudinal study finds that middle-aged people with the highest levels of inflammation markers in their blood succumb to the greatest cognitive decline over the next 20 years.
A comparison of these large data sets shows that while the two forms of Alzheimer’s disease have separate triggers, they follow the same course and are much more similar than different.
NIH funds a five-year project to validate biomarkers for clinical trials.
Armed with what they consider comprehensive data sets from the DIAN initiative, researchers are beginning a quest to settle an old question that may become key to drug approvals for late-onset AD.
The protein creeps up in the cerebrospinal fluid as the disease worsens.
Part 2 of Alzforum’s coverage continues with what scientists from inside and outside DIAN said about the prospect of such pre-symptomatic trials...
Researchers with eyes peeled toward prodromal AD probably see the diagram of the field’s five most validated markers in their sleep...
