Development of screening guidelines and diagnostic criteria for predementia alzheimer's disease (DESCRIPA)

Objective

The primary goal of the study is to reach an evidence-based European consensus on the identification of subjects with Alzheimer's disease (AD) in the preferential stage. The secondary goals of the project will be to develop diagnostic criteria for preferential AD in a clinical setting and screening guidelines for preferential AD in the general population. The clinical criteria will be based on pooled data from six prospective studies of subjects with mild cognitive complaints that have investigated markers of preferential AD. The screening guidelines will be based five population-based studies that have investigated markers of preferential AD.
