f the proteins that bind these antibodies, they have no known function, and there is no clear mechanistic connection to Alzheimer's."

Kodadek is also working on developing an Alzheimer's blood test that screens for antibodies and is running into similar issues, he said.

"At the end of the day, is it crucial to know what the function of these autoantibodies are? No," Kodadek said. "Even if you don't understand what it does, it could still be an important biomarker. But these things are not black and white markers that are completely unique to Alzheimer's patients, which is ideally what you would like to have."
