Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety/Tolerability [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    • Withdrawal criteria (continuation decision) Number of patients who withdraw due to AEs Reason for withdrawal
    • Number and kind (description) of AEs
    • Number and kind (description) of SAEs
    • Changes from study AFF005A in: Physical and neurological examination/ Concomitant medication/ Vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature)/ Body mass (weight)/ MRI of the brain/ ECG/ Laboratory assessment (haematology, biochemistry, coagulation, serology, APP crossreactivity and urinalysis)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical Efficacy [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Changes from study AFF005A in:

    • CIBIC plus (Clinician's Interview-Based Impression of Change, + carer interview)
    • ADAScog (Alzheimer Disease Assessment Scale-cognitive)
    • CERAD plus (The Consortium to Establish a Registry for AD)
    • Neuropsychiatric inventory
    • Activity of daily living
    • Quality of life in patients with Alzheimer's disease
    • Investigator's global evaluation scale
    • MRI brain volumetry

  • Immunological [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    - Titre of antibodies specific for the immunizing peptide, N-terminal part of Aβ, Aβ itself, N-terminally truncated and Pyroglutamate-modified versions of Aβ, and KLH by ELlSA
