The relationship between AD and AMD is complex; the direction of effect of the APOE alleles is opposite in AD and AMD for example, but nonetheless this study, which we started expecting to conclude there were no potential markers in plasma, had both identified a panel of proteins showing difference in disease and where some of those proteins were of potential pathogenic interest. Nonetheless this study was flawed in much the same way as the case-control genomic studies are flawed. We were comparing cases with AD to controls we hoped had no disease even though we were aware that a considerable portion would harbor pre-clinical pathology.

At the same time, and unknown to us, the Collingridge lab in Bristol, UK was onto the role of GSK3 in plasticity but their work approached this from another angle and showed that inhibition of GSK3 blocks long term depression (LTD) [63]. These two papers together with work from other labs supporting their findings show a clear role for GSK3 in regulating plasticity and in linking LTD and LTP. It is clear from the above that GSK3 is not the only tau-kinase but it is a major one and one that slots into the amyloid cascade.

Beyond the headline changes in these three studies of CFH, clusterin, and ApoE, many other proteins have been suggested as potential biomarkers, some of which, such as transthyretin [43] and gelsolin [44], we have subsequently confirmed in larger, independent studies using an orthogonal technology such as ELISA or immunoblot. Our experience with searching for plasma biomarkers, initiated by Hye and colleagues [36] has been a surprising but interesting one. We started as skeptics and to a degree remain so.
