The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication in slowing disease progression in adults diagnosed with mild to moderate Alzheimerâ€™s disease. Qualified study participants and their study partner / caregiver will be asked to attend up to 48 office visits over 18 months. All study participants will be able to continue taking their current Alzheimerâ€™s medications for the duration of the study. In addition to taking their current medications, participants will be randomly assigned to receive either: Dose A of the study medication, Dose B of the study medication, or Placebo. MRI images of the participants’ brains will be acquired periodically to measure changes in brain volume and assess the safety of the medication.
