BACKGROUND The implementation of new biomarkers into clinical practice is one of the most important areas in medical research. Besides their clinical impact, novel in vitro diagnostic markers promise to have a substantial effect on healthcare costs. Although numerous publications report the discovery of biomarkers, only a fraction of those markers are(More)
The early diagnosis of diseases frequently represents an important unmet clinical need supporting in-time treatment of pathologies. This also applies to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common form of dementia, estimated to affect millions of individuals worldwide.
