  • Number of Participants for Change From Baseline for Clinical Global Impressions of Improvement (CGI-I) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12. ]
    CGI-I is a 7-point physician rated scale ranging from very much improved to very much worse.
  • Number of Participants for Change From Baseline for the Caregiver's Assessment of Improvement at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12. ]
    The caregiver's assessment improvement was a 5-point rated scale ranging from much improved to much worse to the question 'compared to the severity of your relative's condition at baseline, how much do you feel it has changed?'.
  • Change From Baseline in the Participant's Assessment for Quality of Life for Alzheimer's Dementia (QoL-AD) Overall and Subscale Scores at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12. ]
    QoL-AD was comprised of 13 individual items, each measured on a 4-point Likert scale (ranging from 1 [poor] to 4 [excellent]). Overall QoL-AD score was the sum of the scores for the 13 individual items and ranged from 13 to 52, with higher scores indicating a higher health related quality of life.
  • Change From Baseline in the Caregiver's Assessment for Quality of Life for Alzheimer's Dementia (QoL-AD) Overall and Subscale Scores at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12. ]
    QoL-AD was comprised of 13 individual items, each measured on a 4-point Likert scale (ranging from 1 [poor] to 4 [excellent]). Overall QoL-AD score was the sum of the scores for the 13 individual items and ranged from 13 to 52, with higher scores indicating a higher health related quality of life.
  • Patient's QoL was assessed at baseline using a disease specific Hr-QoL scale (quality of life for Alzheimer's dementia [QoL AD]). [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • The changes in overall symptoms of the patient's condition by the physician using the 7 step Clinical Global Impressions (CGI) of improvement scale. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • The caregivers' perception regarding the patients' overall improvement. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]

  • Change in ARICEPT Dosing: Number of Participants for Time to First ARICEPT Dose Escalation [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 12. ]
    The starting dose of ARICPET was 5 mg once daily (QD), which could be increased to 10 mg QD during the study.
  • Change in ARICEPT Dosing: Number of Participants at Each Final Dose of ARICEPT [ Time Frame: Week 12. ]
  • Number of Participants for the Physician's Assessment of Tolerance to ARICEPT at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 12. ]
    The physician rated tolerance to ARICEPT as very good, good, adequate, unsatisfactory, or unevaluable.
  • The presence of various co morbid conditions was assessed at the first visit, when recording the significant medical history of the patient. [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • The starting dose of ARICEPT, as well as any changes in dosage during treatment during the observation period [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • The tolerance of ARICEPT and reported side effects [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
  • Termination of ARICEPT treatment during the study and the reason(s) for stopping [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
