Refining Mild-to-Moderate Alzheimer Disease Screening: A Tool for Clinicians

Refining Mild-to-Moderate Alzheimer Disease Screening: A Tool for Clinicians | Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment | Scoop.it

Recent evidence suggests that a substantial minority of people clinically diagnosed with probable Alzheimer disease (AD) in fact do not fulfill the neuropathological criteria for the disease. A clinical hallmark of these phenocopies of AD is that these individuals tend to remain cognitively stable for extended periods of time, in contrast
to their peers with confirmed AD who show a progressive decline. We aimed to examine the prevalence of patients clinically diagnosed with mild-to-moderate AD who do not experience the expected clinically significant cognitive decline and identify markers easily available in routine medical practice predictive of a stable cognitive prognosis
in this population.
