This study has been terminated.
(The study was terminated on August 6, 2012, because 2 large Phase 3 studies showed no clinical benefit. This decision was not based on any new safety concerns.)

Reporting Groups
  Description
Placebo/Bapineuzumab 0.5 mg/kg Participants received placebo in the base study and 0.5 mg/kg bapineuzumab in this extension study. In this extension study bapineuzumab was administered by IV infusion approximately every 13 weeks up to Week 195.
Bapineuzumab 0.5 mg/kg/ Bapineuzumab 0.5 mg/kg Participants received 0.5 mg/kg bapineuzumab in both the base and extension studies. In this extension study bapineuzumab was administered by IV infusion approximately every 13 weeks up to Week 195.
Placebo/Bapineuzumab 1.0 mg/kg Participants received placebo in the base study and 1.0 mg/kg bapineuzumab in this extension study. In this extension study bapineuzumab was administered by IV infusion approximately every 13 weeks up to Week 195.
Bapineuzumab 1.0 mg/kg/Bapineuzumab 1.0 mg/kg Participants received 1.0 mg/kg bapineuzumab in both the base and extension studies. In this extension study bapineuzumab was administered by IV infusion approximately every 13 weeks up to Week 195.
Bapineuzumab 2.0 mg/kg/Bapineuzumab 1.0 mg/kg Participants originally randomized to 2.0 mg/kg bapineuzumab were reassigned to the 1.0 mg/kg dose level after discontinuation of 2.0 mg/kg dose level in the base study and continued the 1.0 mg/kg dose in this extension study. In this extension study bapineuzumab was administered by IV infusion approximately every 13 weeks up to Week 195.

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Bapineuzumab program was discontinued prematurely. Efficacy results obtained after Week 78 are not presented due to the very small number of participants after this time point.
