Safety and Efficacy Study Evaluating TRx0237 in Subjects With Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease
Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group, 15-Month Trial of TRx0237 in Subjects With Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of TRx0237 in the treatment of subjects with mild to moderate Alzheimer's Disease.

Interventional
Phase 3
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Alzheimer's Disease
  • Drug: TRx0237 150 mg/day
    TRx0237 75 mg tablets will be administered twice daily.
  • Drug: TRx0237 250 mg/day
    TRx0237 125 mg tablets will be administered twice daily.
  • Drug: Placebo
    Placebo tablets will be administered twice daily. The active placebo tablets include 4 mg of TRx0237 as a urinary and fecal colorant to maintain blinding; hence the placebo group will receive a total of 8 mg/day of TRx0237.
  • Experimental: TRx0237 250 mg/day
    Intervention: Drug: TRx0237 250 mg/day
  • Placebo Comparator: Placebo
