[Cerebrospinal fluid protein tau levels in the differential diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease].

Abstract

Tau protein concentration in cerebrospinal fluid was determined in 55 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), 18 patients with vascular dementia (VD), 19 patients with dementia caused by other disorders and 14 patients with major depression. Significantly (p < 0.05) elevated protein tau concentrations were found in AD patients (564.5 +/- 275.5 pg/ml… (More)
