Abstract

The authors investigated neuropsychiatric symptoms in mild cognitive impairment (MCI) from baseline data of the Investigation in the Delay to Diagnosis of AD with Exelon (InDDEx) study (n = 1,010). Neuropsychiatric symptoms were reported in 59% of subjects (Neuropsychiatric Inventory [NPI]). NPI+ subjects had significantly greater impairment on global, cognitive, and functional scores than NPI- subjects. The presence of neuropsychiatric symptoms appears to be a marker of MCI severity.
