Significant correlation found between vitreous human biomarkers and Alzheimer’s disease

New research from Boston Medical Center found a significant correlation between biomarkers in the vitreous humor of the eye and pathologically confirmed cases of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) in post-mortem brain and eye tissue. This exploratory study indicates that biomarkers in the vitreous humor may serve as a proxy for neuropathological disease.
