Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline in the Clinical Dementia Rating - Sum of Boxes (CDR-SB) score at 24 months [ Time Frame: Baseline; 24 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to worsening of Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR) score by 24 months [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
    Worsening of the global CDR score is defined as an increase from baseline by at least 0.5 points on the global CDR scale on two consecutive scheduled visits at which global CDR is undertaken.

  • Time to conversion to dementia by 24 months for participants who were not clinically staged as dementia at baseline based on clinical diagnosis [ Time Frame: up to 24 months ]
  • The rate of change over time (mean slope) based on the CDR-SB score over 24 months [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  • Change from Baseline in CDR-SB at 27 months [ Time Frame: Baseline; 27 months (24 months of treatment plus 3 months of posttreatment follow-up) ]
  • Change from Baseline in the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognition14 (ADAS-cog14) score at 24 months [ Time Frame: Baseline; 24 months ]
  • Change from Baseline in the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) score at 24 months [ Time Frame: Baseline; 24 months ]
  • Change from Baseline in the Functional Assessment Questionnaire (FAQ) score at 24 months [ Time Frame: Baseline; 24 months ]
  • Change from Baseline in the AmyloidADAS-cog14 Word List (immediate recall and delayed recall) score at 24 months [ Time Frame: Baseline; 24 months ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline in amyloid positron emission tomography standardized uptake value ratio (PET SUVR) composite at 24 months for brain amyloid levels [ Time Frame: Baseline; 24 months ]
  • Change from Baseline in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers t-tau and p-tau at 24 months [ Time Frame: Baseline; 24 months ]
  • Change from Baseline in CSF amyloid biomarkers Aβ(1-40), Aβ(1-42), and Aβ(1-x) at 24 months [ Time Frame: Baseline; 24 months ]
  • Change from Baseline in total hippocampal volume at 24 months using volumetric magnetic resonance imaging (vMRI) [ Time Frame: Baseline; 24 months ]
  • Change from Baseline in the preservation of connectivity on functional MRI (fMRI) at 24 months [ Time Frame: Baseline; 24 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 1330
Actual Study Start Date: October 2016
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
