Arms Assigned Interventions
AVP-786 (dose 1 and dose 2)
Patients will be assigned to treatment with AVP-786 dose 1 or AVP-786 dose 2
Drug: AVP-786

Detailed Description:

Patient has successfully completed Studies 15-AVP-786-301, 15-AVP-786-302, or 12-AVR-131.

Patients will be enrolled in the study for approximately 52 weeks.

Approximately 550 patients will be enrolled at approximately 110 centers in the US.

All patients enrolled will receive AVP-786, the treatment dose assigned will be masked to the patient, investigator, study staff, and the sponsor.


Ages Eligible for Study:   50 Years to 95 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient has successfully completed Studies 15-AVP-786-301, 15-AVP-786-302, or 12-AVR-131.
  • Patients from Study 12-AVR-131 with a diagnosis of probable AD according to the 2011 NIA-AA working group criteria.
  • Either out-patients or residents of an assisted-living facility or a skilled nursing home.
  • Patients from Study 12-AVR-131 who have clinically significant, moderate/severe agitation at least 2 weeks prior to baseline.
  • Patients from Study 12-AVR-131 with a diagnosis of agitation that must meet the IPA provisional definition of agitation.
  • Patients from Study 12-AVR-131 with a CGIS score assessing Agitation of ≥ 4 (moderately ill) at baseline.
  • Patients from Study 12-AVR-131 with a MMSE score between 6 and 26 (inclusive) at baseline.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with co-existent clinically significant or unstable systemic diseases that could confound the interpretation of the safety results of the study (e.g., malignancy, poorly controlled diabetes, poorly controlled hypertension, unstable pulmonary, renal or hepatic disease, unstable ischemic cardiac disease, dilated cardiomyopathy, or unstable valvular heart disease).
  • Patients determined to have a high imminent risk of falls during the study based on a clinical evaluation by the investigator.
  • Patients who are currently using or were on NUEDEXTA® in the 4 weeks preceding baseline.
