Lewy and Lumbar Punctures

Did you know that spinal fluid is extremely valuable in LBD research? It allows scientists to study changes in the levels of proteins that might be associated with LBD, Alzheimer’s disease, or other disorders that can only be found in spinal fluid. By studying spinal fluid from people with LBD, researchers hope to answer important questions about LBD, such as:

  • How to diagnose LBD earlier and more accurately.
  • How to measure the effectiveness of an experimental treatment.
  • How levels of different proteins relate to the symptoms people with LBD experience.
