CERE-110 in Subjects With Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease
A Phase I, Dose-Escalating Study to Assess the Safety and Tolerability of CERE-110 [Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV)-Based Vector-Mediated Delivery of Beta-Nerve Growth Factor (NGF)] in Subjects With Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease
This is a Phase I clinical study to assess the safety, tolerability and biologic activity of in vivo AAV-mediated delivery of CERE-110. Up to 12 subjects will receive open label CERE-110 in dose-escalating fashion. All subjects will receive bilateral, stereotactic injections of CERE-110 for a total of four (Dose A and B) and six (Dose C) injections to target the basal forebrain region of the brain containing the nucleus basalis of Meynert (NBM). All study participants will be observed for a 24-month period and then followed annually.
