Biomarkers are urgently needed to improve diagnosis and prognosis of neurodegenerative diseases. Here we demonstrate that the lipid composition of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS) patients shows significant signs of metabolic disturbances. In AD patients we found several lipid markers which were indicative to the severity of dementia, while the shift observed in the lipid profile of GBS patients supports the hypothesis of leakage from blood through the blood-nerve barrier. Therefore, lipidomic analysis of CSF might capable to reflect the pathophysiology of several neurological disorders.
