Webinar Recording: Novel P-tau181 Blood Immunoassay And The Future Of Alzheimer’s Disease Research


06 June 2020

time & location

10:00AM, Virtual

Tau phosphorylated at threonine 181 (p-tau181) has been established as a biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease when measured in CSF, but many obstacles prevent its routine use in clinical settings. Join us for a lively discussion around an innovative immunoassay to measure p-tau 181 in blood (plasma and serum), paving the way for new tools to help fight this devastating disease. The discussion will examine the role of ultrasensitivity in biomarker detection and the future of Simoa® in Alzheimer’s disease research.

For an introduction to the research, please review the recent study below. It will be discussed further during this webinar: Blood phosphorylated tau 181 as a biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease: a diagnostic performance and prediction modelling study using data from four prospective cohorts
