Abstract

A pooled average estimate of ARC in AD patients was 3.3 points (95% CI: 2.9-3.7) on the MMSE. Significant heterogeneity of ARC estimates existed across the studies and cannot be explained by the study or population characteristics investigated. Effect size of ARC was related to the initial MMSE score of the study population and the number of assessments.
