Some subjects had more than one of the vascular pathological adjustments that were assessed. Inter-rater reliability for cerebral atrophy, tangles, plaques, Lewy bodies, and amyloid angiopathy was validated among contributing pathologists at the beginning of the study by circulating photographs of macroscopic findings and slides of microscopical results.10 Statistical Analysis Variables were dichotomized so that moderate and severe scores were considered to represent a substantial burden of pathological lesions, as compared without score and mild scores, which represented no burden or a low burden. Relative to the CERAD protocol, optimum neocortical scores for each lesion and for atrophy had been used.‘We are working diligently with Takeda Canada to ensure that every concern raised in the NON can be addressed,’ stated Lee F.
