Resource:CERAD - Consortium to Establish a Registry for Alzheimers Disease

Name: Resource:CERAD - Consortium to Establish a Registry for Alzheimers Disease
Description: The Consortium to Establish a Registry for Alzheimers Disease (CERAD) was established in 1986 by a grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), to standardize procedures for the evaluation and diagnosis of patients with Alzheimers disease (AD). Patients and nondemented control subjects were recruited from 24 NIA-sponsored Alzheimers Disease Research Centers and other university programs in the US. Using standardized diagnostic criteria and assessment instruments, CERAD subjects were examined at entry and annually thereafter, to observe the natural progression of AD. Autopsy examination of the brain was included, to the extent possible, to obtain neuropathologic confirmation of the clinical diagnosis.
