Skin nerve α-synuclein, a promising biomarker for diagnosis of synucleinopathies

Takeaway

  • Detection and quantification of phosphorylated α-synuclein (p-syn) in vivo may be a reliable and easily accessible technique for diagnosing synucleinopathies.

Why this matters

  • Skin biopsy is a promising tool for an effective diagnosis of different forms of synucleinopathies for clinical management and specific treatment of the diseases.
