New, sought-after standard for diagnosis within neurology

June 15, 2010 -- For the first time, researchers from Sweden and the US have succeeded in identifying the majority of the detectable proteins in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of healthy human beings. The advance is expected to provide a valuable tool for diagnosis and research into diseases of the nervous system. The study is being published today in PLoS ONE.

Mapping the mix of 2,630 identified proteins in the CSF of healthy human beings may represent a turning point for research in neurological diseases. Until now, the lack of a clear picture of normal CSF made it impossible to fully assess how the fluid is affected by different disease conditions.
