Stage of Alzheimers DiseaseTests/CriteriaClinical or Research Us
Notable dierences rom 1984NINCDS-ADRDA criteria includeormulation o 3 AD stages andinclusion o biomarkers.Broad consensus that use o biomarkersmust be validated and standardizedbeore routine clinical application.
Dementia due to Alzheimer’sDisease(McKhann et al, 2011)Includes 3 sets of criteria:1. Probable AD dementia2. Possible AD dementia3. Probable AD dementiawith evidence of ADpathophysiology
1. Probable AD dementia (coreclinical criteria) – includes meetingthe clinical criteria or all-causedementia along with insidiousonset; clear history o worsening o cognition by report or observation;and initial and most prominentcognitive defcits include amnesticpresentation and/or defcits inlanguage presentation, visuospatialpresentation and executiveunction.2. Possible AD dementia –diagnosis or patients who meetcore clinical criteria but exhibit anatypical course o cognitive declineor mixed etiological presentation.3. Probable AD dementia withevidence o AD pathophysiology – diagnosis or patients whomeet the core clinical criteriaand incorporate biomarkers,advanced imaging and evaluation o biochemical changes.1. Probable AD dementia criteriaretained the ramework o the 1984NINCDS-ADRDA criteria and can beused in the clinical setting.2. Possible AD dementia criteria can beused in the clinical setting. Any patientwith previous possible AD dementiaper the 1984 NINCDS-ADRDA criteriashould be reevaluated with the updatedcriteria.3. It is not recommended to usebiomarker tests or routine AD diagnosis.I undertaken, biomarker evidence may increase the certainty that clinically assessed dementia is due to the ADpathological process.
