  • Patent number: 8753607
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods and kits for the differential diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) versus frontotemporal dementia (FTD), using biomarkers TNF-?, FAS-L and CK18, taken from a biological sample. Differences in biomarker levels can be used to distinguish between AD and FTD The invention is based on a discovered correlation between FTD and markers FAS-L and CK18. Therefore the invention also relates to the diagnosis of FTD using FAS-L and CK18. The serum concentrations of these biomarkers can further be used as an index of the severity of disease, and may occur in conjunction with clinical-based diagnostic testing and neuro-imaging assessment.
