Biomarkers in Alzheimer’s disease: What are they and how can they help?
The diagnosis, staging, prognosis, and treatment plan for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease has lagged behind the precision seen for other medical illness. However, our field is on the verge of a major revision of its assessment tools which will allow for greater precision based on biological markers of Alzheimer’s disease. In this presentation, you will learn what the current and future biomarkers for this disease consist of and the role that biomarkers will play in decision making for patients and their physicians.
