Method of identifying whether or not an individual has Parinson's Disease rather than aonther Neurrodegenerative Disease
The present invention relates to method of identifying Whether or not an individual has Parkinson’ s disease (PD). In particular, the invention relates to a method for identifying Whether or not an individual has PD as opposed to another neurodegenerative disease. The method of the invention com prises measuring the concentration of (alpha-synuclein (alpha-syn) and the concentration of unphosphorylated tau (tau) and/or phosphorylated tau (p-tau) in a cerebrospinal fluid sample taken from an individual. The method also comprises calculating the ratio of the concentration of tau and/ or p-tau to the concentration of (alpha-syn, and thereby determining Whether or not the individual has PD.
