- Change From Baseline to Week 16 in Total Recall on the Selective Reminding Test (SRT) in the Intent to Treat (ITT) Population [ Time Frame: After 16 weeks of treatment ]The Selective Reminding Test(SRT) is a test to assess verbal learning and memory. During the administration of the SRT only the examiner and the patient should be in the testing room. A list of twelve words is read aloud by the examiner at a rate of one word per two seconds. The patient is asked to recall all twelve words. Only the words that are missed on the preceding trial are given in the consecutive trial. The total score represents a sum score of 6 trials, therefore the range is from 0-72. The lower the value the worse the outcome.
