Abstract

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) can be difficult to diagnose particularly in the earlier stages of illness when the symptoms are mild. In April 2011, National Institute on Aging(NIA)-Alzheimer’s Association published a new criteria for diagnosing AD revised to that of the NINCDS-ADRDA Alzheimer's Criteria proposed in 1984 by the National Institute of Neurological & Communicative Disorders & Stroke and the Alzheimer's Disease & Related Disorders Association (now known as The Alzheimer's Association).As per 1984 criteria the diagnosis of AD is mostly based on Neuropsychological assesment for possible & probable AD, while it needs Autopsy for Definite AD.The new 2011 criteria includes certain phases of dementia & 5 biomarkers which helps in improving an earlier clinical diagnosis of AD i.e preclinical AD(presence of AD pathology in the absence of symptoms & signs of dementia). The Aβ deposition & elevated tau can be seen even in other neuropsychiatric disorders other than AD which created the diagnostic dilemma.
