Divining progression in Parkinson disease with a blood test: NfL

In their article in this issue of Neurology®, Lin and colleagues1 provide compelling evidence for the utility of a neurofilament light chain (NfL) blood test in predicting progression in Parkinson disease (PD) and in distinguishing PD from multisystem atrophy (MSA). If confirmed by independent studies, this would be a major advance for clinical and basic research. Such a test also may have complex consequences for clinical care.
