Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from Baseline to Week 80 in the Clinical Dementia Rating Scale Sum of Boxes (CDR-SB) total score [ Time Frame: From from Baseline to Week 80 ]
    The Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR) scale is a clinician-rated dementia staging system that tracks the progression of cognitive impairment in 6 categories (memory, orientation, judgment and problem solving, community affairs, home and hobbies, and personal care). Each category is scored on a 5-point scale in which None=0, Questionable=0.5, Mild=1, Moderate=2, and Severe=3. The global CDR score is established by clinical scoring rules and has values of 0 (no dementia), 0.5, (questionable dementia), 1 (mild dementia), 2 (moderate dementia), and 3 (severe dementia). The Clinical Dementia Rating Scale Sum of Boxes (CDR-SB) is obtained by adding the ratings in each of the 6 categories and ranges from 0 to 18 with higher scores indicative of greater impairment.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: From Baseline to the Safety Follow-Up (Week 152) ]
    An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical study participant, temporally associated with the use of study medication, whether or not considered related to the study medication. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study medication.

  2. Incidence of treatment-emergent serious adverse events (TESAEs) [ Time Frame: From Baseline to the Safety Follow-Up (Week 152) ]

    A serious adverse event (SAE) is any untoward medical occurrence that at any dose:

    • Results in death
    • Is life-threatening
    • Requires inpatient hospitalisation or prolongation of existing hospitalisation
    • Results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or
    • Is a congenital anomaly/birth defect
    • Other important medical events which based on medical or scientific judgement may jeopardize the patients, or may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent any of the above

  3. Incidence of TEAEs leading to discontinuation or death [ Time Frame: From Baseline to the Safety Follow-Up (Week 152) ]
    An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical study participant, temporally associated with the use of study medication, whether or not considered related to the study medication. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study medication.tion, whether or not considered related to the study medication. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study medication.

  4. Incidence of Drug-related TEAEs [ Time Frame: From Baseline to the Safety Follow-Up (Week 152) ]
    An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical study participant, temporally associated with the use of study medication, whether or not considered related to the study medication. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study medication.

  5. Change from Baseline in suicidal ideation and behavior as assessed by the Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) [ Time Frame: From from Baseline to Week 80 ]
    The Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) is a measure used to identify and assess individuals at risk for suicide. The C-SSRS is made up of ten categories, all of which maintain binary responses (yes/no) to indicate a presence or absence of the behavior. The ten categories included in the C-SSRS are as follows: Category 1 - Wish to be Dead; Category 2 - Non-specific Active Suicidal Thoughts; Category 3 - Active Suicidal Ideation with Any Methods (Not Plan) without Intent to Act; Category 4 - Active Suicidal Ideation with Some Intent to Act, without Specific Plan; Category 5 - Active Suicidal Ideation with Specific Plan and Intent; Category 6 - Preparatory Acts or Behavior; Category 7 - Aborted Attempt; Category 8 - Interrupted Attempt; Category 9 - Actual Attempt (non-fatal); Category 10 - Completed Suicide.

  6. Change from Baseline to Week 56 and Week 80 on indices of tau burden in the brain as measured by [18F]Genentech tau probe 1 (GTP1) positron emission tomography (PET) [ Time Frame: From from Baseline to Week 56 and Week 80 ]
    [18F]Genentech tau probe 1 (GTP1) positron emission tomography (PET) will be used to assess the brain aggregated tau burden during the study. Images will be transferred to and analyzed by a central imaging laboratory. [18F]GTP1 imaging data will be analyzed to determine the standardized uptake value ratio relative to cerebellum in multiple brain regions.

  7. Change from Baseline to Week 56 and Week 80 in Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale (ADAS-Cog14) [ Time Frame: From from Baseline to Week 56 and Week 80 ]
    The Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive Subscale (ADAS-Cog14) is a composite scale (neuropsychological test battery and clinician reported outcome) that evaluates memory, orientation, attention, reasoning, language, and constructional praxis. Higher scores indicate greater impairment, with a minimum of 0 and a maximum of 90.

  8. Change from Baseline to Week 56 and Week 80 in Amsterdam-Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (A-iADL) [ Time Frame: From from Baseline to Week 56 and Week 80 ]
    The Amsterdam-Instrumental Activities of Daily Living Questionnaire (A-iADL) is an adaptive and computerized observer-reported outcome measure designed to assess impairments in instrumental activities of daily living (iADL) in early dementia. The questionnaire is administered to an informant such as a relative or friend, with every effort made to use the same informant for a particular study participant throughout the study. The questionnaire consists of 70 items in 7 categories, which takes approximately 20 to 25 minutes to complete. The A-iADL assesses impairments in a broad range of daily activities including household activities, household appliances, finances, work, computer, appliances, leisure activities. The scoring range is 20 to 80 using an item response theory algorithm, with higher scores indicating better functioning (Sikkes et al, 2013).

  9. Change from Baseline to Week 56 and Week 80 in Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) total score [ Time Frame: From from Baseline to Week 56 and Week 80 ]
    The MMSE is an 11-item neuropsychological test that is used to assess cognitive status in adults, and can be used to screen for cognitive impairment and to estimate severity of cognitive impairment. It assesses orientation, memory, attention, ability to name, ability to follow verbal and written commands, ability to write a sentence and to copy a drawing. The test takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete. The score ranges from 0 to 30. Lower scores are indicative of poorer cognitive performance.

  10. Serum concentrations of bepranemab over the 80-week Double-blind Treatment Period [ Time Frame: From from Baseline to Week 80 ]
    Serum samples will be collected for the measurement of concentrations of bepranemab at different time points during the Double-blind Treatment Period.
