Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline to Last Visit of Double-Blind Treatment Period in Cognitive Function as Measured by the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale, Cognitive Subscale, 11-Item Version (ADAS-Cog11) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 49 for Cohort 1, Baseline to Week 61 for Cohort 2, and baseline to Week 73 for Cohort 3 ]
    A 70-point scale used to quantify the areas of cognitive function most often affected in Alzheimer's disease. Lower scores indicate better cognitive function.

  2. Change From Baseline to Last Visit of Double-Blind Treatment Period in Functional Capacities as Measured by the Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study-Daily Living Inventory (ADCS-ADL) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 49 for Cohort 1, Baseline to Week 61 for Cohort 2, and baseline to Week 73 for Cohort 3 ]
    A scale used to quantify performance of activities of daily living. Scores on the ADCS-ADL range from 0-78, with higher scores indicating better ADL function.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline to Last Visit of Double-Blind Treatment Period on the Clinical Dementia Rating-Sum of Boxes (CDR-SB) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 49 for Cohort 1, Baseline to Week 61 for Cohort 2, and baseline to Week 73 for Cohort 3 ]
    A scale used to quantify the severity of symptoms of dementia. The CDR-SB is obtained through interviews of patients and informants, and disease severity is rated in 6 domains of functioning: memory, orientation, judgment and problem solving, community affairs, home and hobbies, and personal care. Each domain is rated on a 5-point scale of functioning as follows: 0, no impairment; 0.5, questionable impairment; 1, mild impairment; 2, moderate impairment; and 3, severe impairment (personal care is scored on a 4-point scale without a 0.5 rating available). The CDR-SOB score is obtained by summing each of the domain box scores, with scores ranging from 0 to 18, with the higher values representing more severe impairment.

  2. Change From Baseline to Last Visit of Double-Blind Treatment Period on the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 49 for Cohort 1, Baseline to Week 61 for Cohort 2, and baseline to Week 73 for Cohort 3 ]
    The Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) is a brief clinical cognitive examination commonly used to screen for dementia and other cognitive deficits that has a total score of 0-30. Higher scores indicate better cognitive function.

  3. Percentage of Participants with Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 73 months ]
  4. Serum concentration of RO7105705 at specified timepoints [ Time Frame: Weeks 1,3,5,9,13,25,37,49,& at treatment discontinuation (up to Week 48) for C1. Weeks 1,3,5,9,13,25,37,49,61,& at treatment discontinuation (up to Week 60) for C2. Weeks 1,3,5,9,13,25,37,49,61,73,& at treatment discontinuation (up to Week 72) for C3. ]
    C=Cohort

  5. Incidence of anti-drug antibodies (ADAs) during the study relative to the prevalence of ADAs at baseline [ Time Frame: Weeks 1,13,25,37,49,& at treatment discontinuation (up to Week 48) for Cohort 1. Weeks 1,13,25,37,49,61,& at treatment discontinuation (up to Week 60) for Cohort 2. Weeks 1,13,25,37,49,61,73,& at treatment discontinuation (up to Week 72) for Cohort 3. ]
  6. Relationship between ADA Status and Percentage of Participants with Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 73 months ]
    Descriptive statistics will be used for assessment.

  7. Relationship Between ADA Status and Change From Baseline to Last Visit of Double-Blind Treatment Period in Cognitive Function as Measured by the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale, Cognitive Subscale, 11-Item Version (ADAS-Cog11) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 49 for Cohort 1, Baseline to Week 61 for Cohort 2, and baseline to Week 73 for Cohort 3 ]
