Brief description of study

A Phase III, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-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)

Detailed Study Description

The purpose of this trial is to assess the efficacy and safety of MK-8931 compared with placebo in the treatment of amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) due to Alzheimer's Disease (AD), also known as prodromal AD. Participants will be randomized to receive placebo, or 12 mg or 40 mg MK-8931, once daily.
