This study will investigate AQW051 in patients with either mild Alzheimer's disease or amnestic mild cognitive impairment. The effect on cognitive impairment will be measure using validated computerized tests which measure cognitive function. This study will also explore the safety and tolerability of AQW051 in these patients.
A 4-week, Parallel-group, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Adaptive Proof of Concept Study of AQW051 at up to Three Dose Levels for the Treatment of Patients With Findings Consistent With Mild Alzheimer's Disease (AD) or Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment (Amnestic MCI)
