Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety will be evaluated based on incidence of adverse events (AEs) and significant changes in physical examinations, vital signs, ECGs, and routine clinical laboratory assessments from baseline to the end of each treatment period (28 days). [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
  • Extrapyramidal signs are assessed with the motor subsection of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS, Parts II and III). [ Time Frame: 28 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in the frequency and severity of visual hallucinations from baseline to the end of each treatment period (28 days) with Nelotanserin or placebo, as recorded and documented by the patient's caregiver [ Time Frame: 28 days ]

Detailed Description:

This is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, cross-over study in subjects with Lewy body dementia who experience frequent visual hallucinations.

Subjects who meet the randomization criteria enter the double-blind treatment period.

Each subject will be randomized 1:1 to one of the 2 treatment sequences: Nelotanserin in the first treatment period followed by placebo in the second treatment period, or placebo in the first treatment period followed by Nelotanserin in the second treatment period.
