Brief Summary:

The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy of T-817MA as measured by ADAS-cog and ADCS-CGIC.

The secondary objectives are:

  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of T-817MA measured by clinical safety laboratories, physical examinations, ECGs and solicitation of adverse events.
  • To evaluate the efficacy of T-817MA as measured by ADCS-ADL, FAQ, Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI) and Mini-mental State Examination (MMSE).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. ADAS-cog Change From Baseline to Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and 52 weeks ]
    The ADAS-cog (Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-cognitive subscale) is a structured scale that evaluates memory (word recall, word recognition), reasoning (following commands), language (naming, comprehension), orientation, ideational praxis (placing letter in envelope) and constructional praxis (copying geometric designs). Ratings of spoken language, language comprehension, word finding difficulty, and ability to remember test instructions are also obtained. The test is scored in terms of errors, with higher scores reflecting poorer performance and greater impairment. Scores can range from 0 (best) to 70 (worse).

  2. CGIC [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
    The ADCS-CGIC (Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study-Clinical Global Impression of Change) is a validated categorical measure of change in the patient's clinical condition between baseline and follow-up visits. It measures whether the effects of active treatment are substantial enough to be detected by a skilled and experienced clinician on the basis of a clinical interview and examination. It relies on both direct examination of the patient and an interview of the study partner. A skilled and experienced clinician who is blinded to treatment assignment rates the patient on a 7-point Likert scale, ranging from 1 (marked improvement) to 7 (marked worsening). It is suggested that the instrument has distinct clinical utility in assessing change in AD clinical trials.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. ADCS-ADL Change From Baseline to Week 52 [ Time Frame: Baseline and 52 weeks ]
    The ADCS-ADL (Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study Activities of Daily Living) is a validated tool for assessing instrumental and basic activities of daily living based on a 23-item structured interview of the study partner. The scale has a range of 0 to 78, with lower scores indicating greater impairment.
