In neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer disease (AD), it is difficult (or impossible) to obtain sample tissue to directly visualize pathology in the central nervous system (CNS). Furthermore, accurate diagnosis of neurodegenerative disease based only on clinical examination is challenging, especially in early clinical stages. Therefore objective measures of pathogenic processes that can be used to evaluate disease risk or prognosis, guide clinical diagnosis, or monitor treatment… CONTINUE READING
