A Multicenter, Open-Label, Long-Term Safety Extension of Phase II Studies ABE4869g and ABE4955g in Patients With Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease


Brief Summary
This Phase II, open-label extension (OLE), multicenter study will evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of crenezumab in participants with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease who have participated in and completed the treatment period of the Phase II Study ABE4869g (NCT01343966) or ABE4955g (NCT01397578). Participants who received placebo in Study ABE4869g (NCT01343966) or ABE4955g (NCT01397578) will receive crenezumab. Anticipated time on study treatment is 144 weeks.


Phase 2 - takes the treatment one step further, assessing the activity of a particular therapy in a disease, often building upon leads from the Phase I trial. While patients are generally required to be previously untreated, participation in a Phase II trial doesn't usually preclude the patient from getting the standard treatment after they've received the investigational agent. At best they are allowed to get a new drug they wouldn't be able to get otherwise that may turn out to be better for their disease.

Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria

  • Previous participation in Study ABE4869g or ABE4955g and completion of the Week 73 visit
  • Adequate visual and auditory acuity, in the investigator's judgment, to allow for neuropsychological testing
  • Availability of a person ("caregiver") who can provide information on activities of daily living and behavior in order to complete the study-specific assessments
  • Diagnosis of probable Alzheimer's disease according to the National Institute on Neurological and Communication Disease and Stroke/Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association (NINCDS-ADRDA) criteria (McKhann et al. 1984)
  • Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) score of 10 or more at screening (Folstein et al. 1975)
  • For male participants with partners with reproductive potential, agreement to use a reliable means of contraception (e.g., condoms) during the study and for at least 8 weeks following the last dose of study drug
  • For female participants, a negative pregnancy test at screening

  • Early treatment and/or study discontinuation prior to completion of the Week 73 visit of Genentech Study ABE4869g or ABE4955g
  • Early discontinuation from the treatment schedule of a prior version of Study GN28525 for safety reasons. If treatment discontinuation occurred for safety reasons, participants may not re-start dosing on extended treatment schedules offered in amendments to Study GN28525
  • Inability to tolerate Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) procedures or contraindication to MRI
  • Female participants with reproductive potential: Female participants must either have undergone documented surgical sterilization or have not experienced menstruation for at least 12 consecutive months
  • Severe or unstable medical condition that, in the opinion of the investigator or Sponsor, would interfere with the participant's ability to complete the study assessments or would require the equivalent of institutional or hospital care
  • History or presence of clinically evident vascular disease potentially affecting the brain
  • History of severe, clinically significant central nervous system trauma
  • History or presence of clinically relevant intracranial tumor
  • Presence of infections that affect the brain function or history of infections that resulted in neurologic sequelae
  • History or presence of systemic autoimmune disorders potentially causing progressive neurologic disease
  • History or presence of a neurologic disease other than Alzheimer's disease that may affect cognition
  • History of severe allergic, anaphylactic, or other hypersensitivity reactions to chimeric, human, or humanized antibodies or fusion proteins
  • Evidence of malignancies (except squamous cell cancer or basal cell cancer of the skin), acute infections, renal failure that requires dialysis, or other unstable medical disease not related to Alzheimer's disease that, in the investigator's opinion, would preclude participant's participation. Cancer that is not being actively treated with anti-cancer therapy or radiotherapy as well as cancers which are considered to have low probability of recurrence are allowed
  • History or presence of atrial fibrillation that, in the investigator's judgment, poses a risk for future stroke
  • Chronic kidney disease of Stage greater than or equal to (>=) 4, according to the National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (NKF KDOQI) guidelines for chronic kidney disease (CKD)
  • Impaired hepatic function
  • Impaired coagulation (activated partial thromboplastin time [aPTT] greater than [>] 1.2 times upper limit of normal [ULN])
  • Platelet count less than (<) 100,000 per microliter (mcL)
  • Presence at screening of superficial siderosis of central nervous system, more than 8 cerebral microhemorrhages, or evidence of a prior cerebral macrohemorrhage
  • Presence at screening of any other significant cerebral abnormalities, including ARIA-E
  • Treatment with anticoagulation medications within 2 weeks prior to enrollment. Clopidogrel, dipyridamole, and aspirin are permitted
  • Treatment with anticholinergic antidepressants, typical antipsychotics, or barbiturates within 2 weeks prior to enrollment. All other antidepressants and atypical antipsychotics are allowed with certain restrictions as defined in the protocol
  • Chronic use of opiates, opioids, or benzodiazepines
  • Any biologic therapy within 75 weeks prior to enrollment
  • Any investigational agent (other than crenezumab) within 75 weeks prior to enrollment
  • Treatment with anticholinergic antidepressants, typical antipsychotics, barbiturates, or narcotics within 5 half-lives or 3 months prior to screening, whichever is longer. All other antidepressants and atypical antipsychotics are allowed. Chronic use of benzodiazepines is not allowed; however, the intermittent use of benzodiazepines is allowed, except within 2 days prior to any neurocognitive assessment
