Researchers Develop Tool to Detect Alzheimer’s Biomarkers in Several Body Fluids Simultaneously
Hong Kong Baptist University researchers have developed a tool for spotting biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease that can detect them in a number of kinds of body fluids simultaneously. The tool is made up of antibodies that bind only to beta-amyloid and tau proteins, well-known markers of Alzheimer’s. It uses a new detection compound, an indolium-based turn-on fluorophore that the researchers call SIM. They developed it to be more sensitive than other detection methods. Researchers said the tool can quantify very low amounts of the proteins simultaneously in cerebrospinal fluid, blood, urine and saliva. The study, "Ultra-sensitive detection of protein biom
