Exclusion criteria

  • Participants with illness apart from AD that could contribute to cognitive dysfunction
  • History of clinically significant suicidal ideation within the past 6 months
  • Thyroid disease unless the participant is euthyroid and stable on treatment for at least 3 months prior to screening
  • Participants with a personal or family history of congenital long QT syndrome or sudden death
  • Clinically significant cardiovascular disease in the past 6 months prior to screening
  • Participants with signs and symptoms of peripheral vascular disease (PVD)
  • A transient ischemic attack or other acute ischemic event affecting the brain, spinal cord, or peripheral circulation in the past 6 months prior to screening
  • Any history of cerebrovascular accident or stroke
  • Any history of a seizure disorder other than a single febrile seizure
  • Pulmonary disease or evidence of clinically significant moderate or severe pulmonary symptoms
  • History of cancer within the last 5 years
  • Evidence or history of diabetes mellitus Type 1
  • Any significant sensory (eg, moderate to severely impaired hearing or severely impaired vision) or hand movement difficulties that would prevent participants from completing the behavioral assessments of the study
  • Treatment with cholinesterase inhibitors other than donepezil or other cholinomimetics within 12 weeks of the baseline visit
  • Treatment with memantine not in combination with donepezil within 12 weeks of the baseline Visit
  • Participants who have been on anticholinergic and/or antimuscarinic treatment including overactive bladder treatments, antihistamines, antipsychotics, and tricyclic antidepressants, within 12 weeks prior to the baseline visit
  • Participants who have been on drugs that are strong inhibitors of CYP2D6 or CYP2C9 (eg, quinidine, paroxetine, fluoxetine, terbinafine, bupropion), or that are moderate or strong inhibitors of CYP3A4 (eg, erythromycin, ketoconazole, rifampicin, fluconazole, carbamazepine) within 21 days prior to the baseline visit
  • Participants who are taking any moderate or strong inducers of CYP3A4 (eg, carbamazepine, phenytoin, rifampin, modafinil, and herbal preparations containing St. John's wort) or strong inducers of CYP2C9 within 21 days prior to the baseline visit
  • Participants who have been on other drugs that could affect cognition (eg, benzodiazepines or gamma-aminobutyric acid A (GABAA) receptor agonists used as anxiolytics, sedative-hypnotics) or over-the-counter (OTC) sleeping aids within 12 weeks prior to the baseline visit
  • Participants who have been on hormone replacement therapy, thyroid supplement, vitamin E, or vitamin B12 unless at a stable dose for 4 weeks before the baseline visit
  • Use of an active Alzheimer's disease vaccine within 2 years prior to screening or monoclonal antibody for treatment of AD within 1 year prior to screening
  • Positive test results for anti-human immunodeficiency virus (anti-HIV) type 1 and 2, hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), or anti-hepatitis C virus (anti-HCV) at screening
