Accumulation of neurotoxic kynurenine metabolites with aging represents the mechanism of neuromuscular defects linking chronic inflammation to physical frailty.
The metabolite of this month focuses on kynurenine, a tryptophan-derived metabolite at the crossroads between neurology, immunology and cancer.
How to combine targeted metabolomics and machine learning algorithms to identify biomarkers associated with ALS disease progression.
What does brain activity look like after anti-depressant treatment and what is the basis for prescribing serotonin re-uptake inhibitors in the first place?
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has many facets. Metabolomics supports Alzheimer’s early diagnosis and research on the treatment of AD.
Finding a test for different types of multiple sclerosis has been proven to be difficult. Metabolomics as a solution is explored in the study portrayed here.
Female and male mice may think differently. Targeted metabolomics reveals differences in brain chemistry between the two which might account for behavioral differences.
Betaine supplementation has a profound effect on phospholipid metabolism. Its effect on brain and liver health can be studied using targeted metabolomics.
Due to the fact that in Alzheimers bile acids as well as the microbiome play a key role, standardized metabolomics is particularly well adapted to study Alzheimers.
