Abstract
Alzheimer’s Disease is one of the most common forms of dementia, affecting millions of people worldwide. Although incurable, an easy and effective form of diagnosis is still missing. Thus, this work aims to develop an electrochemical biosensor for the early detection of Alzheimer's disease, by recognizing the peptide Aβ-42, a biomarker associated with visible differences in the brain tissue and responsible for the formation of senile plaques. The intended sensing devices use a bottom-up designing approach, having paper as substrate. Paper is one of the most promising materials in the current flexible electronics industry, for being eco-friendly, cheap, abundant ...
