Do you know why the lumbar puncture – or “LP” – is so important for LBD research? It’s because an LP is a safe and effective way to collect a cerebrospinal fluid sample.
Cerebrospinal fluid – or “CSF” ¬– is a clear fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord that can show changes in the brain caused by diseases like LBD. By studying CSF, researchers hope to find ways to diagnose LBD earlier and more accurately, learn how it develops, and find effective treatments. Learn more about LPs and LBD research today.

Because LBD and Parkinson’s disease share the same underlying biology, NINDS added LBD to their Parkinson’s Disease Biomarker Program (PDBP). In 2019 NINDS awarded another $4.3 million in research funding for the study of biological indicators of LBD during life.
