|Official Title:||Performance of AclarusDx™, A Blood-Based Transcriptomic Test for Alzheimer's Disease, in US-based Patients Suffering From Memory Impairment and Newly Referred to A Reference Memory Center, for AD Diagnostic Workup—A Pilot Descriptive Study|
- Sensitivity of AclarusDx™ in AD patients [ Time Frame: Outcome measured during one single study visit ]The determination of the sensitivity of the test, being the percentage of positive AclarusDx™ calls among referred patients being confirmed clinically as having AD at the Memory Center will be calculated.

Patients newly referred to a Reference Memory Center with a complaint of memory impairment for AD diagnostic workup.
The objective of this study is to apply AclarusDx™ signature in a reference US Center in 160 patients newly referred to one of the three study centers within the Cleveland Clinic, Center for Brain Health network, for diagnostic workup. Only AclarusDx™ will be added to the panel of tests usually performed at the centers to establish diagnosis. AclarusDx™ will be used for investigational use only, not for diagnostic purpose. The ultimate goal is to define the clinical utility of AclarusDx™ to provide Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) with a tool that will help them in making the diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease (AD).
The primary objectives are :
- To obtain an estimate of the capability of AclarusDx™ to identify AD patients among a US-based population of newly referred patients suffering from objective memory impairment which maybe potentially related to multiple and different etiologies.
- To compare the performance of AclarusDx™ in a US-based population of newly referred patients with memory impairment with the performance of AclarusDx™ observed in one comparable European population.
