Overview

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause for dementia leading to gradual decline in memory, thinking ability, cognitive skills and daily activities. This may in turn also affect the mood, behaviour and social skills of the patient. Alzheimer’s most commonly occurs beyond 65 years, although in certain rare cases it may occur in patients <50 years (Early onset Alzheimer’s). The most common cause for Alzheimer’s is deposition of certain proteins known as amyloid proteins in the brain cells. Alzheimer disease screening profile CSF is often used along with the routine clinical examination and other tests for diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.

*Sample collection is done by qualified healthcare providers within hospital or clinic settings. The lab is only responsible for the analysis and processing of the sample.

Frequently Asked Questions

Alzheimer disease screening profile CSF measure levels of beta-amyloid protein and tau protein in the CSF sample.

  • Although the provisional diagnosis of Alzheimer’s is majorly done based on the patient’s symptoms and radiological examination, the laboratory tests and CSF examination may further aid the diagnosis.
  • The test may be done for early diagnosis of suspected Alzheimer's disease.
  • To differentiate between Alzheimer’s induced dementia and vascular causes for dementia.

It is advised that patients with the following clinical signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s should undergo testing for differential diagnosis:

  • Memory loss or dementia (mainly recent or short term memory)
  • Delayed thinking or processing skills
  • Reduced cognition
  • Difficulty reasoning and handling complex tasks.
  • Language processing difficulties.
  • Understanding visual form and space relationship.
  • Changes in overall behavior and personality.

This test requires a CSF sample. A spinal needle is used and the patient's CSF sample is collected with the necessary aseptic precautions.

The levels of beta-amyloid protein and tau protein in the CSF sample aids the diagnosis and to determine the prognosis.

Determination of beta-amyloid (1-42) with total tau or p-tau in the CSF supports early diagnosis of suspected Alzheimer's disease. The beta-amyloid (1-42)/beta-amyloid (1-40) ratio can improve the discrimination between Alzheimer's patients and vascular dementia.
