Neurodegenerative Diseases DNA Methylation Biomarker Discovery


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 Discovery Strategies

We primarily use candidate gene methylation analysis and genome-wide DNA methylation analysis strategies to discover biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases.

Candidate gene strategy Genome-wide strategy We can select DNA methylation in certain candidate genes that have been previously reported in studies as a known source for biomarker discovery. Comparative analysis of DNA methylation of candidate genes in healthy and diseased samples is used to support validation of site-specific DNA methylation changes at certain loci. We collect samples of blood, saliva, urine or other tissues obtained from individuals in the early stages of disease and perform genome-wide DNA methylation analysis to search for differentially methylated loci with abnormal changes and screen for the identification of new, highly specific, disease-associated DNA methylation biomarkers.
