Detailed Description:

BIIB037 is an investigational product being developed as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease (AD). BIIB037 is a fully human immunoglobulin gamma 1 (IgG1) monoclonal antibody that is selective for the fibrillar of Aß. In animal models of Alzheimer's disease, treatment with BIIB037 was shown to decrease beta amyloid content in animal brain. The study will be conducted in subjects with mild to moderate AD to profile the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of single doses of BIIB037 in the presence of the biological target (i.e., Aß plaques).


Ages Eligible for Study:   55 Years to 85 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Men or women aged 55 to 85 years old, inclusive, at the time of informed consent
  • Must be ambulatory
  • Must have a clinical diagnosis of AD consistent with the following:

    1. Probable AD, according to National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disease and Stroke and Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association (NINCDS-ADRDA) criteria [McKhann et al. 1984].
    2. Dementia of Alzheimer's type, according to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-Text Revision (DSM IV TR) criteria [American Psychiatric Association 2000]
  • Subject (or subject's permanent caregiver) has the ability to understand the purpose and risks of the study and provide signed and dated informed consent (or assent) and authorization to use protected health information (PHI) in accordance with national and local subject privacy regulations.
  • Must have a Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) score of 14 to 26 inclusive.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any medical or neurological condition (other than AD) that in the opinion of the Investigator could be a contributing cause of the subject's dementia (e.g., medication use, vitamin B12 deficiency, abnormal thyroid function, stroke or other cerebrovascular condition, diffuse Lewy body disease, head trauma).
  • History within the past 6 months or evidence of clinically significant psychiatric illness (e.g., major depression, schizophrenia, or bipolar affective disorder).
  • Subject currently lives in a nursing home.
  • Blood donation (1 unit or more) within the 1 month prior to Screening
  • Participation in any other drug, biologic, device, or clinical study or treatment with any investigational drug or approved therapy for investigational use within 30 days (or 5 half lives, whichever is longer) prior to Screening, and/or participation in any other clinical study involving experimental medications for AD within the 60 days (or 5 half lives, whichever is longer) prior to Screening.
  • Any contraindications to having a brain MRI (e.g., pacemaker; non MRI-compatible aneurysm clips, artificial heart valves, or other metal foreign body; claustrophobia).
