Die elektrosensible Diagnostik in der Neurologie

Mit der Elektroencephalographie und der Elektromyographie hat die Neurophysiologie zwei wichtige Beiträge zur klinischen Routinearbeit geleistet, die aus der Funktions­ diagnostik einerseits des Gehirns, andererseits des peripheren Nervensystems nicht mehr wegzudenken sind. Es fehlte bisher aber eine vergleichbare funktionsanalytische Unter­ suchungsmethode für den Bereich der Rückenmarkspathologie.

Having failed to prove the null hypothesis, we then used tandem mass spectrometry to identify the protein content of the spots contributing to differentiation. One of the many proteins we identified and published in this paper was complement factor H (CFH). Using immunoblot, we confirmed its elevation in AD relative to controls and non-AD neurodegenerative diseases in more than 500 subjects. Others subsequently used 2DGE and immunodetection to replicate this finding, both for CFH and some of the other proteins we identified [37, 38].
