OBJECTIVE To study CSF biomarkers, beta-amyloid(1-42) (Abeta(1-42)) and tau, and medial temporal lobe atrophy (MTA) on MRI in their ability to predict dementia in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). METHODS Fifty-nine MCI patients (49% male, mean age 69+/-8), follow-up 19 months, were included. Baseline CSF levels of Abeta(1-42), tau and(More)
OBJECTIVE In Alzheimer disease (AD), longitudinal changes of beta-amyloid(1-42) (Abeta(1-42)), tau, and phosphorylated tau at threonine 181 (ptau-181) in CSF have been reported in small studies only. We evaluated the natural course of CSF biomarkers in patients with AD, subjective complaints, and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). METHODS One hundred five(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the diagnostic value of CSF amyloid beta(1-42) (Abeta42), CSF total tau, and CSF tau phosphorylated at threonine-181 (Ptau-181) in early-onset Alzheimer disease (EAD) vs frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). METHODS Levels of Abeta42, total tau, and Ptau-181 in CSF were measured using commercially available ELISA in 47 EAD(More)
OBJECTIVE CSF biomarkers amyloid beta 1-42 (Abeta(42)), total tau (tau), and tau phosphorylated at threonine 181 (p-tau-181) are useful diagnostic markers for Alzheimer disease (AD). Less is known about these biomarkers as predictors for further cognitive decline in patients with AD. We hypothesized that high tau, especially in combination with relatively(More)
The aim of the study was to compare clinical variables between MCI patients at different risk for Alzheimer's disease (AD) according to their biomarker profile. Fifty-four percent out of 39 MCI patients had a low Abeta42 and high tau in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) (high-risk), 26% either a low CSF Abeta32 or high CSF tau (intermediate-risk) and 20% a normal(More)
