WP09 - Mystery Cases

The  work package on "Mystery Cases" requires contribution by the most experienced neuropathologists. Cases with difficult, atypical or uncertain neuropathological features, including cases of dementia without major defined pathology will be made available from all participating brain banks for exhaustive further examinations. WP09 will study and exchange tissues from such cases. A consensus diagnostic opinion will be sought by all available methodologies, including immunocytochemistry, eventual electron microscopy, molecular biologic analysis, immunoblotting, experimental transmission etc.  

Cases without a consensus diagnosis will not be used for Brain Banking services, but earmarked for further research.
