Brief Summary:

This multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel-group study will evaluate the effect of gantenerumab (RO4909832) on cognition and functioning and the safety and pharmacokinetics in participants with prodromal Alzheimer's Disease. Participants will be randomized to receive subcutaneous (SC) injections of either gantenerumab or placebo. Participants who consent to be part of the sub study will undergo positron emission tomography (PET) scanning to assess brain amyloid. The anticipated time on study treatment is 104 weeks in Part 1, with an option for an additional up to 2 years of treatment in Part 2, followed by an open-label extension (Part 3) until July 2020.

The dosing for Parts 1 and 2 was stopped after a planned futility interim analysis showed a low probability of meeting the primary outcome measure with the doses studied. The study has converted to open-label to investigate higher gantenerumab doses.

Participants who complete the Week 104 visit will be given an option to continue the treatment received during Part 1 for 2 additional years in Part 2.
Drug: Gantenerumab
Participants will receive gantenerumab at 105 mg , 225 mg, or at doses up to 1200 mg SC injection q4w.

Placebo Comparator: Placebo (Parts 1 and 2)
Participants with Alzheimer's disease will receive placebo SC injection q4w for 104 weeks or approximately 2 years during Part 1 of the study. Participants who complete the Week 104 visit will be given an option to continue the treatment received during Part 1 for 2 additional years in Part 2.
Drug: Placebo
Participants will receive placebo SC injection q4w.

Experimental: Gantenerumab Up to 1200 mg (Part 3 Open-Label Extension [OLE])
