Plasma Amyloid Concentration in Alzheimer's Disease: Performance of a High-Throughput Amyloid Assay in Distinguishing Alzheimer's Disease Cases from Controls.

Collection of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for measurement of amyloid-β (Aβ) species is a gold standard in Alzheimer's disease (AD) diagnosis, but has risks. Thus, establishing a low-risk blood Aβ tes...

Working Towards a Blood-Derived Gene Expression Biomarker Specific for Alzheimer's Disease.

The typical approach to identify blood-derived gene expression signatures as a biomarker for Alzheimer's disease (AD) have relied on training classification models using AD and healthy controls only. ...

Plasma neurofilament light associates with Alzheimer's disease metabolic decline in amyloid-positive individuals.

Neurofilament light chain (NfL) is a promising blood biomarker to detect neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other brain disorders. However, there are limited reports of how longitudinal...

Time to test antibacterial therapy in Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer's disease is associated with cerebral accumulation of amyloid-β peptide and hyperphosphorylated tau. In the past 28 years, huge efforts have been made in attempting to treat the disease by ...

Profiling of differentially expressed circular RNAs in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from Alzheimer's disease patients.

Expression of circular RNA (circRNA), a class of noncoding RNAs that regulates gene expression, is altered in Alzheimer's disease. This study profiled differentially expressed circRNAs in peripheral b...

Clinical Trials [17413 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Multi-parameter Diagnostic Blood Test for the Diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease

The purpose of this study is to validate a diagnostic test that combines different blood markers to identify and correctly classify patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) compared to indiv...

Blood Biomarker of Alzheimer's Disease (AD)

Currently, no cures or disease modifying therapies exist for Alzheimer's disease (AD). This is partially due to the inability to detect the disease before it has progressed to a stage wher...

Biomarker Study for Alzheimer's Disease

The study aims to identify immune biomarkers in peripheral blood for identifying Alzheimer's disease (AD). Blood samples from subjects with AD will be compared to age-matched controls with...

Safety and Efficacy Study of ABT-089 in Adults With Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease

The purpose of this study is to test if the investigational medication ABT-089 is a safe and effective treatment for Alzheimer's disease.

Blood Gene Expression Signature in Patients Diagnosed With Probable Alzheimer's Disease Compared to Patients Suffering From Other Types of Dementia

The objective of the study is to define the performance of blood-based signatures for Alzheimer's Disease (AD) in different patients populations including AD, non-AD dementia, and non-deme...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A test to detect non-agglutinating ANTIBODIES against ERYTHROCYTES by use of anti-antibodies (the Coombs' reagent.) The direct test is applied to freshly drawn blood to detect antibody bound to circulating red cells. The indirect test is applied to serum to detect the presence of antibodies that can bind to red blood cells.

Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.

In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat ALZHEIMER DISEASE.

A progressive form of dementia characterized by the global loss of language abilities and initial preservation of other cognitive functions. Fluent and nonfluent subtypes have been described. Eventually a pattern of global cognitive dysfunction, similar to ALZHEIMER DISEASE, emerges. Pathologically, there are no Alzheimer or PICK DISEASE like changes, however, spongiform changes of cortical layers II and III are present in the TEMPORAL LOBE and FRONTAL LOBE.
