Martínez-Morillo E, Hansson O, Atagi Y, Bu G, Minthon L, Diamandis EP, & Nielsen HM. Acta Neuropathologica 2014, 127(5):633-643. The apolipoprotein E (ApoE) ε4 allele is the strongest risk factor of sporadic Alzheimer’s disease (AD), however, the fluid concentrations of ApoE and its different isoforms (ApoE2, ApoE3 and ApoE4) in AD patients and among APOE genotypes (APOE ε2, ε3, […]

Flt3 ligand does not differentiate between Parkinsonian disorders.
Silajdžić E, Constantinescu R, Holmberg B, Björkqvist M, & Hansson O. Movement Disorders 2014, 29(10):1319-1322. BACKGROUND: Differential diagnosis of parkinsonian disorders is challenging because of overlapping symptoms, especially during early stages of disease. No validated biomarkers are available for early and accurate diagnosis of multiple system atrophy and other parkinsonian disorders. It has been reported […]
Antibodies against phosphorylcholine are not altered in plasma of patients with Alzheimer’s disease
Silajdzic E, Bjorkqvist M, & Hansson O. BMC Neurol 2015, 15:8. Background Phosphorylcholine is one of the major epitopes of oxidised low density lipoprotein. Low levels of IgM antibodies against phosphorylcholine (anti-PC) are associated with development of myocardial infarction and stroke. It has been shown that patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias have significantly […]

Surova Y, Nilsson M, Lätt J, Lampinen B, Lindberg O, Hall S, Widner H, Nilsson C, van Westen D, Hansson O. Neuroradiology. 2015 Nov;57(11):1079-91. INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study is to identify disease-specific changes of the thalamus, basal ganglia, pons, and midbrain in patients with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), Parkinson’s disease (PD), and multiple system […]

Cerebral white matter lesions – associations with Aβ isoforms and amyloid PET
van Westen D, Lindqvist D, Blennow K, Minthon L, Nägga K, Stomrud E, Zetterberg H, Hansson O. Scientific Reports (in press 2016). Small vessel disease (SVD) and amyloid deposition may promote each other, with a potential association between SVD and altered production or clearance of β-amyloid (Aβ) a ecting its cleavage products. We investigated the […]
