Profiles of extracellular miRNA in cerebrospinal fluid and serum from patients with Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease correlate with disease status and features of pathology
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
We profiled the miRNA contents from cerebrospinal fluid and serum (using next generation sequencing) from postmortem patients diagnosed with Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease, and neurologically normal controls. All biofluids were cell-free and patient matched, there was one cerebrospinal fluid and one serum sample from each of 70 patients with Alzheimer's disease, 67 patients with Parkinson's disease and 78 age-similar controls. We correlated the miRNA changes with measurements of neuropathology such as plaques, tangles and Lewy bodies.
