A 24-Month Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Elenbecestat (E2609) in Participants With Early Alzheimer's Disease


Trial ID: NCT03036280


The name of this trial is MissionAD1. This phase 3 study consists of a Core and Open Label Extension (OLE) Phase in participants with Early Alzheimer's Disease (EAD), and will be conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of E2609. The Core is a 24-month treatment, multicenter, double blind, placebo controlled parallel group study. The OLE is a 24-month treatment, one group study. The data for the studies E2609-G000-301 (NCT02956486, MissionAD1) and E2609-G000-302 (NCT03036280, MissionAD2) will be pooled.
