APOE: Enhancing Early Alzheimer’s Disease DiagnosisAPOE: Enhancing Early Alzheimer’s Disease Diagnosis

Detecting cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers currently constitutes the primary approach for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) diagnosis. Innovative biomarkers like APOE and TREM2 are under investigation utilizing omics techniques. There is a growing emphasis on blood-based assays for AD-related biomarkers. Nevertheless, APOE detection in blood remains a formidable challenge. Elucidating its passage into the brain could significantly advance AD diagnosis modalities.
