Proteomics allows a better understanding of the physiopathology of alzheimersdisease

This statement is suggested and supported by:

an amazing and comprehensive paper(1) by Sruti Rayaprolu et al. from Emory University school of medicine in Atlanta explains how and why proteomics – the study of the entire set of proteins present in a cell, a tissue, an organ or an organism at a given time and of its evolution over time – could revolutionize the understanding of the pathogenesis, diagnostic and disease monitoring (through biomarkers that go far beyond amyloid and Tau proteins) and consequently lead to new therapeutic approaches.
