Cerebral Arrays- Measurement of analytes associated with nervous system dysfunction

Neurological disorders can affect the central, somatic and autonomic nervous system. At the molecular level, many analytes have been found to have involvement in the pathophysiology of this complex interacting system.

Proteins such as NSE are considered to be neurochemical markers of brain damage and appear to have predictive value for outcome after acute stroke. BDNF and GFAP have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and MS. Inflammatory processes have increasingly been shown to be implicated in the pathogenesis of cerebrovascular disease and CRP has been identified as a predictor of future stroke risk.

Cerebral Array I Analytes

  • BDNF
  • H-FABP
