NCT02667496 : Safety Study of Sargramostim in Treating Patients With Mild Cognitive Impairment Due to Alzheimer's Disease
PhasePhase 2
AgesMin: 40 Years Max: 80 Years
Inclusion criteria:

- Men and women ?40 years and ?80 years with a diagnosis of MCI due to AD according to
the National Institutes of Aging Alzheimer's Association (NIA-AA) criteria
(intermediate or high likelihood) with sporadic or familial inheritance pattern. Mild
cognitive impairment AD is defined as:

- Evidence of concern about change in cognition, in comparison with person's previous
level (subjective memory complaint/decline during the past year for more than 6
months and/or confirmed by informant and/or clinician), and

- Objective impairment of memory function documented by an error score on the delayed
recall section of the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-cognitive subscale
(ADAS-cog) ?1.5 standard deviations (SD) from the age-stratified mean; ie,

- Age 55-69 years: ?6 errors

- Age 70-74 years: ?7 errors

- Age 75+ years: ?8 errors

- But no definite impairment(s) in activities of daily living (ADLs), in the
Investigator's view as assessed by the Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study (ADCS)
ADL adapted to MCI, and

- Evidence of elevated cortical amyloid by positron emission tomography (PET) using
florbetapir F18 (Amyvid) (a positive scan) by qualitative assessment according to the
product label.

- Have a dedicated partner/caregiver informant who can assist the patient with the
study procedures and administration of study medication, and is in the company of the
patient at least 12 hours a week.

- Willing and able to provide signed informed consent.

Exclusion criteria:

- Any technical/administrative reason that makes it impossible to randomize the patient
in the study.

- Prior treatment with an investigational anti-amyloid therapy.

- Contraindication for lumbar puncture, or contraindication or inability to complete
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or having past or planned exposure to ionizing
radiation that would, together with the radiation resulting from the administrations
of the PET tracer used in this study, exceed applicable institutional, local, or
national recommendations for annual or lifetime exposure.

- Modified Hachinski Ischemic Score >4.

- Other neurological or psychiatric condition (other than AD) which can impair
cognition; or, computerized tomography (CT)/MRI evidence of potentially significant
intracranial abnormalities not related to AD (eg, evidence of major stroke or lacune
in an area critical to cognition, infections, cancer, hydrocephalus, multiple
sclerosis etc.); or abnormal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) not consistent with AD.

- MRI evidence of >4 microhemorrhages: patients who may be prone to spontaneous
amyloid-related imaging abnormalities (ARIA-H) and/or may be more susceptible to
adverse effects of the ARIA-H.

- Untreated or unstable medical condition that could interfere with the study
assessments in the opinion of the Investigator or may require immune-stimulating,
immune-suppressive, or immune-modulating treatment(s) during the conduct of the
study; eg, immunoglobulin, therapeutic vaccines, cytokines, anti-cytokine monoclonal
antibodies. History of asplenia, hyposplenia, or splenectomy (whatever the surgical

- Current mood or anxiety disorder, and/or a psychotic disorder, and/or a
substance-related disorder according to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of
Psychiatric Disorders, Edition IV, text revision (DSM-IV-TR) or DSM-V; or considered
suicidal or shows suicidal ideation as assessed by the Investigator.

- Laboratory abnormalities indicative of an untreated medical or hematologic condition
that could increase risk or interfere with study assessments including untreated
hypo- or hyperthyroidism, vitamin B12 deficiency, hyperleukocytic syndrome (including
but not restricted to chronic myelogenous leukemia, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin
lymphoma), monoclonal gammopathy, and thrombocythemia.

- Known renal dysfunction or serum creatinine >150 µmol/L.

- Known hepatic dysfunction (apart from Gilbert's syndrome) or serum alanine
aminotransferase (ALT) ?3 times the upper limit of normal (ULN).

- Pregnant or breastfeeding woman.

- Presence or history of drug hypersensitivity; or known hypersensitivity to
sargramostim, yeast-derived products, any other component of the product, or benzyl
alcohol (present in bacteriostatic water or saline for infusion).

- Evidence of fluid retention (clinical or radiological), respiratory symptoms (eg,
dyspnea), cardiovascular symptoms or electrocardiographic evidence of cardiac disease
which warrant therapeutic intervention (eg, supraventricular arrhythmia).

- History of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism or familial
predisposition for DVT or pulmonary embolism.

- Women and female partners of childbearing potential and not protected by highly
effective contraceptive methods of birth control (ie, oral or depot contraceptives or
intrauterine device [IUD] or subject was surgically sterilized) and/or unwilling or
unable to be tested for pregnancy; or are pregnant or lactating.

- Recipient of an investigational drug within prior 60 days, or within 5 times the
elimination half-life of that drug, whichever is the longest.

- History of latex allergy or yeast allergy.

- Any patient who:

- Is likely to be noncompliant, leave the area, or separate from the designated
caregiver/informant for more than 3 days during the study,

- Unable to cooperate because of a language problem or poor mental development,

- Oversees or implements any aspect of the study, or

- Is employed by Sanofi or its affiliates or subsidiaries (eg, Genzyme, Sanofi-Pasteur,
