DNA Methylation Biomarker Discovery for Aging-Related Neurodegenerative Diseases


Neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and Huntington's disease (HD), are often associated with the onset of aging. Most of the current biomarker assays for neurodegenerative diseases are based on expensive and invasive techniques, then the search for biomarkers that can be detected by cost-effective, highly comfortable techniques is of great application.

DNA methylation is one of the more widely studied epigenetic biomarkers. There is also a growing research effort to identify and validate DNA methylation changes in aging and age-related neurodegenerative diseases, thus DNA methylation may have great potential as an early diagnostic biomarker for neurodegenerative diseases. CD BioSciences can provide DNA methylation biomarker discovery services for neurodegenerative diseases.

Our DNA Methylation Biomarker Discovery Services for Aging-Related Diseases

Potential biomarker discovery (DNA methylation level analysis and loci identification)

  • Candidate gene strategies. Our expertise in candidate gene strategies involves the meticulous selection of target genes based on existing knowledge of their involvement in aging processes and neurodegenerative pathways. By narrowing down the scope to predetermined genetic loci with known biological relevance, we help our clients streamline the biomarker discovery process and delve deeper into the molecular mechanisms underpinning disease etiology.
  • Genome-wide strategies. We utilize genome-wide strategies encompassing genomic platforms and computational tools to unravel the complexity of DNA methylation patterns in aging-related neurodegenerative diseases. By integrating multi-omics data, we unearth hidden correlations and uncover novel biomarkers with the potential to revolutionize disease diagnosis and management.

Potential biomarker validation

We employ molecular biology techniques to validate the identified DNA methylation biomarkers. Our services involve confirming the differential methylation status of specific loci across a larger cohort of samples, including neurodegenerative diseases and healthy controls.

Validated biomarker analysis evaluation

We undertake an in-depth evaluation of these biomarkers, examining their sensitivity, specificity, and predictive value with neurodegenerative diseases. Our comprehensive assessment aims to ascertain the clinical significance and diagnostic potential of the identified biomarkers in stratifying disease subtypes, predicting disease progression, or serving as indicators of treatment response.
