medical conditions, the subject is in general good health, based upon the results of
medical history, physical examination, vital signs, laboratory profile, and a 12-lead

using a barrier method of birth control (condom) with spermicidal
foam/gel/film/cream/suppository for the duration of the study and for 30 days

postmenopausal for at least two years or is surgically sterile, then use of a barrier

compliance with the study medication and procedures, and provide accurate information
about the subject's status during the study.

- The subject and caregiver must have sufficient visual, hearing and graphomotor skills
to complete the study procedures.

vital signs, laboratory profile and/or ECG measurements in Study M11-793 that
indicates the subject could become medically unstable during the current study.

medications without the approval of Abbott medical monitor.

- The subject was noncompliant with donepezil or rivastigmine during Study M11-793 or is
expected to discontinue these medications prior to conclusion of this study.

- The subject anticipates a move outside the geographic area of the investigative site
or is planning extended travel inconsistent with the recommended visit intervals.

- The subject is currently enrolled in, or plans to participate in, another experimental
study during the course of this trial.

- The subject developed any significant medical or psychiatric condition that, in the
