Vanmechelen, E; Vanderstichele, H; Hulstaert, F; Andreasen, N; Minthon, Lennart LU ; Winblad, B; Davidsson, P and Blennow, K (2001) In Mechanisms of Ageing and Development 122(16). p.2005-2011
Abstract
The reliability of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)-tau and CSF-beta-amyloid assays for diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and other dementing disorders such as frontotemporal dementia (FTD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is reviewed. CSF assessment of the two proteins is useful in early diagnosis of AD and to differentiate it from FTD and DLB. Extremely high CSF-tau levels can discriminate CJD from AD.
