  Purpose

This phase II, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-co ntrolled study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of RO4602522 in patients wi th moderate severity Alzheimer disease. Patients who are taking background thera py of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors alone or in combination with memantine for at least 4 months before screening will be randomized to receive either one of two doses of RO4602522 or placebo for 12 months.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adult patients, 50-90 years of age inclusive at time of screening
  • Probable Alzheimer disease, based on the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke (NINCDS)/Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association (ADRDA) and DSM-IV-TR criteria
  • MMSE score at screening between 13 and 20, inclusive
  • Body mass index (BMI) between 18 and 36 kg/m2 (inclusive) at screening
  • Modified Hachinski Ischemia Score of </= 4
  • Patients with Cornell Scale for Depression in Dementia (CSDD) scores </= 13 at screening
  • Receiving treatment with donepezil or rivastigmine, galantamine or any of these AChEIs in combination with memantine for at least 4 months before screening, with their dose and formulation stabilized at least 3 months before screening. All formulation and dosages are allowed except donezepil 23 mg (alone or in combination)
  • Females of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test and must agree to use effective contraception
  • Generally healthy and ambulatory or ambulatory-aided (i.e., walker or cane)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any neurological or psychiatric condition that may currently or during the course of the study impair cognition or functioning that is not associated with Alzheimer's disease
  • Background of mental retardation
  • Uncontrolled behavioral symptoms incompatible with compliance or evaluability
  • Alcohol and/or substance abuse or dependence (DSM-IV-TR) in the past 2 years, except nicotine use which is allowed. However, smokers treated with nicotine replacement therapy or bupropion are excluded
  • Unstable or poorly controlled hypertension as assessed by the investigator
  • Unstable or clinically significant cardiovascular disease that could be expected to progress, recur, or change during study period to such an extent that it could bias the assessment of the clinical or mental status of the patient
  • Inadequate hepatic, renal or thyroid function
  • Positive for hepatitis B, hepatitis C or HIV infection
  • Poorly controlled diabetes
  • Requiring nursing home care. Patients living in assisted living facilities are allowed if a reliable caregiver is available (see inclusion criteria)
