New diagnostic technology points to possible new antibody blood tests for conditions from Alzheimer's to autoimmune diseases

"Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) in Jupiter, FL, have developed cutting-edge technology that can successfully screen human blood for disease markers. This tool may hold the key to better diagnosing and understanding today's most pressing and puzzling health conditions, including autoimmune diseases."

This concerns the use of thousands of randomly synthesised peptoid antigens: Blood borne antibodies bind to some of these providing a profile that is of diagnostic use.
