This is consistent with the results of studies where the clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease was compared with the definitive post-mortem histopathological diagnosis. Additional data analysis is still ongoing in this study.

There were twenty-nine treatment-emergent AEs, the most-frequent of which were injection site changes, were reported in 24 subjects (16 percent), 10 of whom were patients with probable Alzheimer's disease and 14 of whom were healthy volunteers.
