NIA Study Demonstrates ApoE's Potential as Blood-Based Protein Biomarker for Alzheimer's | GenomeWeb

In a National Institute on Aging-supported study released this week, Alzheimer's researchers found that levels of the protein apolipoprotein E in blood samples were strongly associated with levels of beta-amyloid deposits in the brain.

Because increased deposits of beta-amyloid are considered a hallmark of Alzheimer's, this link suggests that ApoE could be used as a blood-based protein biomarker for the disease.
