Fluid Biomarkers

Alzheimer’s disease: Fluid biomarkers for diagnosis

This module reviews key information on CSF biomarkers in relation to the pathological changes associated with Alzheimer’s disease, their role in early diagnosis and CSF sampling methodology.

Concretely, the module reviews considerations for CSF sampling, and appropriate use and procedure for lumbar puncture. It also describes pre‐analytical variables and their impact on CSF biomarkers, and specific core and emerging CSF biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease. Lastly, the presentation describes the real‐world practical applications of CSF biomarkers.
