New diagnostic criteria for Alzheimer's published

New Criteria and Guidelines for Alzheimer’s Disease Diagnosis published in Alzheimer’s and Dementia, the journal of the Alzheimer’s Association at

Draft criteria were first presented last summer at the International Conference on Alzheimer’s Disease and were subject to feedback from the research and practice community. They are now published in 3 final documents, along with an introductory summary, online April 19 in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.

The 3 working groups were convened by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the Alzheimer’s Association to update criteria established by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke/Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Association — now the Alzheimer’s Association — in 1984.
