Abstract: Carboxyterminally elongated and aminoterminally truncated amyloid-β (Aβ) peptides and their oxidized derivates are major constituents of human amyloid plaques. The objective of the present study was to clarify the diagnostic impact of the Aβ peptides 1-38ox, 2-40, and 2-42 peptides on the neurochemical cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). For this purpose, 22 patients with AD and 20 non-demented disease controls (NDC) were comparatively analyzed for their cerebrospinal fluid pattern…
