    Title: A Randomized, Placebo Controlled, Parallel-Group, Double Blind Efficacy and Safety Trial of MK-8931 in Subjects with Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease
    Decscription: The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of MK-8931 compared with placebo in the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease (AD). The primary study hypotheses are that at least one MK-8931 dose is superior to placebo at 78 weeks of treatment with respect to change from Baseline in Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale Cognitive Subscale (ADAS-Cog) score and that at least one MK-8931 dose is superior to placebo at 78 weeks of treatment with respect to change from Baseline in Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study Activities of Daily Living Inventory (ADCS-ADL) score.
    Investigator: Shawn Kile, MD
    Eligibility: Patients 55-85 with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease with a realible trial partner that has a close relationship to the patient. Patient must be comfortable undergoing MRI and eye exams. Patient cannot have allergies or hypersensitivity reactions to more than 3 medications.
    Status: Active and open to enrollment.

    Title: A Phase III, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Paralle-Group, Double-Blind Clinical Trial to Study the Efficacy and Safety of MK-8931 (SCH 900931) in Subjects with Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment Due to Alzheimer's Disease (Prodromal AD).
    Decscription: The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of MK-8931 compared with placebo in the treatment of Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment (aMCI). The primary study hypothesis is that at least one MK-8931 dose is superior to placebo with respect to he change from baseline in Clinical Dementia Rating - Sum of Boxes (CDR-SB) score at 104 weeks.
    Investigator: Shawn Kile, MD
    Eligibility: Patients 50-85 with amenstic mild cognitive impairment and a realivel trial partner tht has a close relationship to the patient. Patient must be comfortable undergoing MRI, eye exams and PET scan. Patient cannot have allergies or hypersensitivity reactins to more than 3 medications.

    Title: An Open Label, Multicenter Study, Evaluating the Safety and Imaging Characteristics of 18F-AV-1451 in Cognitively Healthy Volunteers, Subjects with Mild Cognitive Impairment, and Subjects with Alzheimer's Disease.
    Decscription: This is a Phase II cross-sectional and lognitudinal observational study that will evaluate imaging characteristics of 18F-AV-1451 in cognitive healthy control subjects and patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease (AD).
    Investigator: Stephen Falen, MD
    Eligibility: All patients must be able to tolerate MRI and PET scan imaging procedures and undergo cognitive assessments. Cognitive healthy subjects must be either ages 20-40 or over 50 yrs of age. MCI and AD patients must be over 50 yrs of age and have a trial partner that has a close relationship to the patient.
