Progressive supranuclear palsy finally has a clinically measureable {tau} abnormality (Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry)
 




Definitive biomarkers for both differentiating neurodegenerative diseases and monitoring their progression over time are sorely needed. This has become particularly crucial for the development of therapies targeting core disease mechanisms.2 β-Amyloid (Aβ) and associated biomarkers have revolutionised current thoughts and theories on Alzheimer`s disease (AD) with the hope that significant advances in clinical therapies can now be achieved.2 The most significant change is their use to detect asymptomatic disease due to many disappointing clinical trials in definitively diagnosed symptomatic patients.3 This change in thinking has only been possible in AD due to advances in imaging and peripheral biomarker research and their application in diverse population settings.4 To date the identification of definitive biomarkers for other neurodegenerative diseases has been allusive. The study by Wagshal et al1 identifies a potential biomarker for patients with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). PSP deposits...
