Early and differential diagnosis test for Alzheimer’s disease

26.04.2010
Alzheimer‘s disease (AD), widely regarded

as the most common cause of dementia, is a progressive neurological disorder. It can result in symptoms like memory loss, personality alterations and difficulty in communicating and performing routine

tasks. AD is associated with a complete deterioration in the quality of life and exposes the sufferer to a number of other co-morbidities like depression, anxiety, sleep disorders and perhaps even injury. More than 40% of those 85 years of age and over may be affected. The diagnosis of AD as well as other diseases resulting into dementia is still a decision based on multiple sources of information that are considered simultaneously. The reason for this situation is that no single biological marker exists for AD or other dementias. The diagnostic methods used till today are such, which may detect AD only in relative late stage of the disease. In this invention 23 gene candidates were found encoding for specific proteins, in which the expression of them alters in AD comparing to control. Using these gene patterns each alone or in combination, may be used as molecular markers to provide an easy and rapid method for early Detection of those who will develop AD.

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
