Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Core Phase: Change From Baseline up to Month 24 in the Clinical Dementia Rating-sum of Boxes (CDR-SB) Score [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1: before first dose in the core phase) up to Month 24 of the core phase ]
    The clinical dementia rating (CDR) scale is a clinical global rating scale that requires interviewing both the participant and an informant who knows and has contact with the participant. The CDR scale is a clinician directed assessment of both cognition and function, and is intended to capture the state and therefore the disease stage of the participant. The CDR scale assesses 6 domains of participant function (memory, orientation, judgement and problem solving, community affairs, home and hobbies and personal care) on a 5-point scale in which no impairment=0, questionable impairment=0.5, mild impairment=1, moderate impairment=2 and severe impairment=3. The CDR-SB is a sum of the individual domain scores and ranges from 0 to 18. Higher score indicates more impairment.

  2. Extension Phase: Number of Participants Reporting One or More Treatment-emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: From first dose of study drug up to approximately 6 months (including 1 month follow up) for the extension phase ]
    A TEAE is defined as an adverse event that emerged during treatment or within 28 days following the last dose of study drug, having been absent at pretreatment (Baseline) or reemerged during treatment, having been present at pretreatment (Baseline) but stopped before treatment, or worsened in severity during treatment relative to the pretreatment state, when the adverse event was continuous. Number of participants with TEAEs (serious and non-serious adverse events) were reported based on their safety assessments of laboratory tests, suicidal ideation and suicidal behavior, drug abuse potential, physical examination, neurological examination, regular measurement of vital signs, magnetic resonance imaging and electrocardiogram parameter values.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Core Phase: Change From Baseline up to Month 24 in Alzheimer's Disease Composite Score (ADCOMS) [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1: before first dose in the core phase) up to Month 24 of the core phase ]
    ADCOMS is a weighted linear combination of 12 items from three existing clinical scales: the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-cognitive subscale (ADAS-cog), the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE), and the CDR. Four items are from the ADAS-cog (A4 [Delayed Word Recall], A7 [Orientation], A8 [Word Recognition], A11 [Word Finding]); 2 items are from the MMSE (M1 [Orientation Time], M7 [Drawing]); 6 items are from the CDR (C1 [Personal Care], C2 [Community Affairs], C3 [Home and Hobbies], C4 [Judgment and Problem Solving], C5 [Memory], C6 [Orientation]). Composite score is derived from the variables from the 12 items, and ranges from 0 to 1.97, where higher score indicates worse performance.

  2. Core Phase: Change From Baseline up to Month 24 in Amyloid Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Standardized Uptake Value Ratio (SUVR) [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1: before first dose in the core phase) up to Month 24 of the core phase ]
    Amyloid PET scan assesses cerebral amyloid load using 3 tracers (florbetapir, florbetaben and flutemetamol) which is standardized into centiloids for evaluation of AD. Centiloid values on centiloid scale is based on mean composite SUVR in cingulate, frontal, parietal and temporal cortexes using whole cerebellum as reference region. SUVR is ratio of tracer uptake in each of cingulate, frontal, parietal and temporal cortexes relative to cerebellum. The centiloid scale anchor points are 0 and 100, where 0 represents a high-certainty amyloid negative scan and 100 represents the amount of global amyloid deposition found in a typical AD scans.

  3. Core Phase: Change From Baseline up to Month 24 in the CDR-SB Score for Participants Enriched by Baseline Amyloid PET SUVR Between 1.2 and 1.6 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1: before first dose in the core phase) up to Month 24 of the core phase ]
    The CDR scale is a clinical global rating scale that requires interviewing both the participant and an informant who knows and has contact with the participant. The CDR scale is a clinician directed assessment of both cognition and function, and is intended to capture the state and therefore the disease stage of the participant. The CDR scale assesses 6 domains of participant function (memory, orientation, judgement and problem solving, community affairs, home and hobbies and personal care) on a 5-point scale in which no impairment=0, questionable impairment=0.5, mild impairment=1, moderate impairment=2 and severe impairment=3. The CDR-SB is a sum of the individual domain scores and ranges from 0 to 18. Higher score indicates more impairment. Amyloid PET scans allow in vivo assessment of cerebral amyloid load. SUVR indicates the ratio of tracer uptake in the frontal cortex relative to the cerebellum or the ratio of tracer uptake in the whole brain relative to the cerebellum.

  4. Core Phase: Change From Baseline up to Month 24 in the ADCOMS for Participants Enriched by Baseline Amyloid PET SUVR Between 1.2 and 1.6 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 1: before first dose in the core phase) up to Month 24 of the core phase ]
    ADCOMS is a weighted linear combination of 12 items from three existing clinical scales: the ADAS-cog, the MMSE, and the CDR. Four items are from the ADAS-cog (A4 [Delayed Word Recall], A7 [Orientation], A8 [Word Recognition], A11 [Word Finding]); 2 items are from the MMSE (M1 [Orientation Time], M7 [Drawing]); 6 items are from the CDR (C1 [Personal Care], C2 [Community Affairs], C3 [Home and Hobbies], C4 [Judgment and Problem Solving], C5 [Memory], C6 [Orientation]). Composite score is derived from the variables from the 12 items, and ranges from 0 to 1.97, where higher score indicates worse performance. Amyloid PET scans allow in vivo assessment of cerebral amyloid load. SUVR indicates the ratio of tracer uptake in the frontal cortex relative to the cerebellum or the ratio of tracer uptake in the whole brain relative to the cerebellum.

  5. Core Phase: Change Per Year (Mean Slope) in CDR-SB Score up to Month 24 [ Time Frame: Up to Month 24 of the core phase ]
    The CDR scale is a clinical global rating scale that requires interviewing both the participant and an informant who knows and has contact with the participant. The CDR scale is a clinician directed assessment of both cognition and function, and is intended to capture the state and therefore the disease stage of the participant. The CDR scale assesses 6 domains of participant function (memory, orientation, judgement and problem solving, community affairs, home and hobbies and personal care) on a 5-point scale in which no impairment=0, questionable impairment=0.5, mild impairment=1, moderate impairment=2 and severe impairment=3. The CDR-SB is a sum of the individual domain scores and ranges from 0 to 18. Higher score indicates more impairment. In this outcome measure, change per year (mean slope) in CDR-SB score was calculated up to month 24, where higher change indicated more impairment and lower change indicated less impairment.

  6. Core Phase: Time to Worsening of CDR Score up to Month 24 [ Time Frame: Up to Month 24 of the core phase ]
    The CDR scale is a clinical global rating scale that requires interviewing both the participant and an informant who knows and has contact with the participant. The CDR scale is a clinician directed assessment of both cognition and function, and is intended to capture the state and therefore the disease stage of the participant. The CDR scale assesses 6 domains of participant function (memory, orientation, judgement and problem solving, community affairs, home and hobbies and personal care) on a 5-point scale in which no impairment=0, questionable impairment=0.5, mild impairment=1, moderate impairment=2 and severe impairment=3. The global CDR score is computed via an algorithm and ranges from 0 to 3. Higher score indicates more impairment. In this outcome measure, time (in months) to worsening of CDR score (that is, an increase from baseline by at least 0.5 points on the global CDR scale on 2 consecutive scheduled visits) up to month 24 was calculated.
