The Division of Neuroscience (DN), NIA, in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association, held an advisory workshop to examine the current state of knowledge related to neuropathological diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and differentiation of AD pathology from that of other dementing illnesses in post-mortem brains. A working group composed of experts in the field and a number of NIH staff was convened to examine the evidence and make recommendations as to the timing and steps to take in reconsideration of the NIA-Reagan criteria for AD diagnosis. The outcome of this meeting will subsequently be presented to the Alzheimer’s community for feedback in the form of a draft publication.
