FoxBioNet Pilot Project: SAVE (Synuclein Assay Validation Effort)

2017-05-31 18:38:21 | BioPortfolio


The overall objective of this study is to compare the performance of available oligomeric and phosphorylated a-synuclein assay in cerebrospinal fluid and blood.


Specific aims to accomplish this objective are:

1. Assess the reliability of oligomeric and phosphorylated a-synuclein concentration between two different oligomeric and three phosphorylated asynuclein assays.

2. Assess the reliability of the oligomeric and phosphorylated a-synuclein concentrations between laboratories

3. Assess the correlation of oligomeric and phosphorylated a-synuclein concentrations between cerebrospinal fluid and blood.

1.2. Secondary Objectives

1. To assess the ability of the network of pilot sites to efficiently conduct a study involving biosample collection for PD research. Efficiency will be assessed using measures of the time taken to meet specific milestones within the study.

2. To assess the ability of the network to collect high quality biospecimens adhering to agreed-upon protocols.

3. To gauge the willingness of participants to participate in subsequent Fox BioNet studies

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.

Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.

Proteins associated with sporadic or familial cases of PARKINSON DISEASE.

A condition caused by the neurotoxin MPTP which causes selective destruction of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. Clinical features include irreversible parkinsonian signs including rigidity and bradykinesia (PARKINSON DISEASE, SECONDARY). MPTP toxicity is also used as an animal model for the study of PARKINSON DISEASE. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1072; Neurology 1986 Feb;36(2):250-8)
