VALIDITY AND PERFORMANCE OF BLOOD BIOMARKERS FOR ALZHEIMER DISEASE TO PREDICT DEMENTIA RISK IN A LARGE CLINIC-BASED COHORT
Upon completion of the article by Planche et al, the participant should be able to:
- State how certain blood biomarkers were able to identify patients with amyloid-PET positivity (based on results of ROC analyses) in this study
- Describe how blood biomarkers alone, a clinical prediction model (utilizing age, sex, education, memory, and executive performance) alone, and these approaches together performed in predicting the future risk of Alzheimer disease (AD) in this study
- Discuss how the addition of certain medical comorbidities (chronic kidney disease, cardiovascular disease) impacted the ability of blood biomarkers and a clinical prediction model to predict the future risk of AD in this study
CORE COMPETENCIES:The article by Planche et al covers the following core competency:
- Medical knowledge
AUTHOR DISCLOSURES:Refer to listing above the references in each article.
