MicroRNAs in CSF as prodromal biomarkers for Huntington’s disease

Originally aired on: Tuesday, May 29, 2018

The Myers lab has studied microRNAs (miRNA) in Huntington disease (HD) brain, plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).  In a study to assess the potential of miRNAs as biomarkers for disease, we found increased miRNA levels were detected in CSF for carriers of the HD trinucleotide repeat expansion mutation up to twenty years before expected disease onset.  Levels increased as proximity to onset decreased suggesting miRNAs may serve as effective biomarkers for prodromal disease long before disease manifestation.
