This study will be conducted to evaluate the efficacy of BAN2401 in participants with early Alzheimer's disease (EAD) by determining the superiority of BAN2401 compared with placebo on the change from baseline in the Clinical Dementia Rating-Sum of Boxes (CDR-SB) at 18 months of treatment in the Core Study.

This study will also evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of BAN2401 in participants with EAD in the Extension Phase and whether the long-term effects of BAN2401 as measured by the CDR-SB at the end of the Core Study is maintained over time in the Extension Phase.



    - Participants will receive all study related medical care - Diagnostic tests for Alzheimer's Disease for free - Study medication - Participants will be compensated for their time and travel.

Inclusion Criteria

Objective impairment in episodic memory as indicated by at least 1 standard deviation below age-adjusted mean in the Wechsler Memory Scale IV-Logical Memory (subscale) II (WMS-IV LMII) Positive biomarker for brain amyloid pathology Male or female participants aged greater than or equal to (>=)50 and <=90 years, at the time of informed consent Mini mental state examination (MMSE) score greater than or equal to 22 at Screening and Baseline and less than or equal to 30 at Screening and Baseline Body mass index (BMI) greater than 17 and less than 35 at Screening If receiving an approved Alzheimer's disease treatment such as acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEIs) or memantine or both for Alzheimer's disease, must be on a stable dose for at least 12 weeks prior to Baseline. Treatment-naive participants for Alzheimer's disease can be entered into the study. Unless otherwise stated, participants must have been on stable doses of all other (ie, non-Alzheimer's disease-related) permitted concomitant medications for at least 4 weeks prior to Baseline

Exclusion Criteria

Any neurological condition that may be contributing to cognitive impairment above and beyond that caused by the participant's Alzheimer's disease History of transient ischemic attacks (TIA), stroke, or seizures within 12 months of Screening Any psychiatric diagnosis or symptoms (e.g., hallucinations, major depression, or delusions) that could interfere with study procedures in the participant Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) score >=8 at Screening Contraindications to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning, including cardiac pacemaker/defibrillator, ferromagnetic metal implants (e.g., in skull and cardiac devices other than those approved as safe for use in MRI scanners Evidence of other clinically significant lesions on brain MRI at Screening that could indicate a dementia diagnosis other than Alzheimer's disease Any other medical conditions (eg, cardiac, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal disease) which are not stably and adequately controlled, or which in the opinion of the investigator(s) could affect the participant's safety or interfere with the study assessments
