What is Involved?

If you participate in this study you will:
- Have screening tests to make sure it is safe for you to be in the study (physical and neurological exam, memory testing, questionnaires, and other procedures as needed)
- Be randomized (like drawing numbers from a hat) to get:
-- A study drug called ABBV-8E12 or
-- Placebo (an inactive substance like salt water or a sugar pill)
(you will have a 3 in 4 chance of getting the study drug and a 1 in 4 chance of getting placebo)
Neither you nor your study doctor will know whether you are getting the study drug or the placebo but they can find out in an emergency.

You will need to have a partner who will come with you during study visits and give independent information about how you are doing during the study.

You'll be in the study for about 2 years
