Table 1 Mean MMSE and AQT values ± standard deviation

From: A Quick Test of cognitive speed is sensitive in detecting early treatment response in Alzheimer's disease

Variable 8 weeks before baselinee Baseline 8 weeks after baseline
  n = 75 n = 75 n = 75
The MMSE, points 23.0 ± 3.1 22.7 ± 3.0a 23.3 ± 3.5b*
AQT Color-Form, seconds 98.8 ± 21.6 101.5 ± 24.9c* 91.8 ± 28.4d*
  1. aP = 0.088 compared with 8 weeks before baseline. bP = 0.047 compared with baseline. cP = 0.045 compared with 8 weeks before baseline. dP < 0.0001 compared with baseline. eCalculated value for all 75 patients according the description in Materials and methods. *Significant change.
  2. Calculated with the Wilcoxon test. MMSE, the Mini-Mental State Examination (0 to 30 points); a higher score indicates better cognition. AQT, A Quick Test of cognitive speed (measured in seconds); less time indicates better cognition.
