OBJECTIVE Friedreich ataxia (FRDA) is an autosomal recessive ataxia resulting from mutations in the frataxin gene (FXN). Such mutations, usually expanded guanine-adenine-adenine (GAA) repeats, give rise to decreased levels of frataxin protein in both affected and unaffected tissues. The goal was to understand the relationship of frataxin levels in(More)
Our team has been a pioneer in harvesting extracellular vesicles (EVs) enriched for neuronal origin from peripheral blood and using them as a biomarker discovery platform for neurological disorders. This methodology has demonstrated excellent diagnostic and predictive performance for Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases in multiple studies,(More)
