This is an interesting paper that adds additional information about the value of multiple biomarkers as predictors of future decline in older persons. Specifically, CSF pTau predicted subsequent hippocampal atrophy independent of baseline atrophy and cognitive impairment. These data add to our knowledge about the utility of individual and combinations of biomarkers for predicting subsequent neurodegeneration.
