Abstract: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia characterized by amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. Novel biomarkers for AD are needed that reflect disease progression and could identify subjects at risk of developing AD at an asymptomatic stage. The aim of this thesis was to develop methods that can be used to quantify endogenous peptides and proteins in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to identify potential biomarkers for AD. A workflow was developed for preparati... more
