New Guidelines for the Diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease

Three expert international workgroups convened by the Alzheimer's Association and the National Institute on Aging (NIA) have issued the first new criteria and guidelines to diagnose Alzheimer's disease in 27 years. The new guidelines update, refine and broaden widely used guidelines published in 1984 by the Alzheimer's Association (then known as the Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association) and the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke (now known as the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke).
