Genes differentially expressed in peripheral blood cells (PBC) could potentially help in the understanding of FRDA pathophysiology and also function as reliable disease biomarkers obtained from an easily accessible tissue, which could have implications in clinical practice. This study aimed to validate by qPCR the expression of 26 genes, revealed as differentially expressed by other studies, using peripheral blood cells (PBC) of 11 FRDA patients compared to 11 healthy controls.
