Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is an important source of biomarkers of neurodegenerative diseases . Reflecting biochemical processes in the brain, proteins in the CSF may reveal clues to disease mechanisms. As new disease-modifying therapies are being developed, there is an increased need for markers that enable earlier, more accurate diagnosis and provide means to monitor disease progression and response to treatment.
