A mandate of the ADCS is to develop optimal assessment instruments for use in clinical trials. The ADCS developed virtually every current instrument used in one or more AD trials. We have experience with a variety of instruments that measure cognitive, functional, global, resource use, and quality of life status. Since 1996, over 500 academic or commercial entities have requested these instruments.
The most frequently requested instruments are the Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale (ADAS-cog), Activities of Daily Living (ADL), and the Clinical Global Impression of Change Scale (CGIC). Certain instruments are also available in Spanish and alternative versions. Licensing, copyright and/or permission for use rules may apply.
