Brief Summary:
The purpose of this Phase IIa study is to determine whether the AD Immunotherapeutic Vaccine (UB-311), targeting the amyloid beta peptide (N-terminal amino acids, 1-14), is safe and immunogenic in mild AD patients. In addition, the efficacy profiles will be evaluated as the secondary endpoint.
