Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A 90-week, Multi-center, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study in Patients With Mild Alzheimer's Disease (AD) to Investigate the Safety, Tolerability and Abeta-specific Antibody Response Following Repeated i.m. Injections of Adjuvanted CAD106

Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability assessments (physical/neurological examinations, electrocardiogram (ECG), vital signs, standard and special laboratory evaluations, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRIs), Adverse events / Serious adverse events (AE/SAE) monitoring). [ Time Frame: Screening and through the end of the study to Week 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Amyloid beta (Aβ)-specific and Qβ carrier-specific antibody response to CAD106 (with either adjuvant) in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) [ Time Frame: Screening and through the end of the study to Week 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Amyloid beta (Aβ)-specific and Qβ carrier-specific T-cell response to CAD106 (with either adjuvant) using peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) [ Time Frame: Screening and at week 8 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Changes over time of the concentrations of disease related markers (Aβ1-40 and Aβ1-42 in plasma; Aβ1-40, Aβ1-42, total-tau, phospho-tau in CSF, or other markers) in patients with mild AD receiving CAD106 (with either adjuvant) compared to placebo [ Time Frame: Screening and through the end of the study to Week 90 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
