In the BN40031 OLE study, a dose of crenezumab of 60 mg/kg IV Q4W will be offered to all patients who complete Study BN29552 or BN29553 and who meet eligibility criteria in order to evaluate safety in patients on long-term crenezumab treatment and to investigate the effect of crenezumab on the underlying disease process and disease course as an exploratory efficacy objective.

  • Patients who discontinued treatment permanently in Study BN29552 or BN29553 for safety reasons.
  • Impaired coagulation.
  • Evidence of more than 10 microbleeds and/or ARIA-H (amyloid-related imaging abnormalities-hemosiderin deposition) at the Study BN29552 or BN29553 Week 105 visit, as assessed by central review of MRI.
  • Diagnosed with three recurrent, symptomatic ARIA-E (amyloid-related imaging abnormalities-edema/effusion) events or exacerbations of previous events.
  • Presence of intracranial lesion that could potentially increase the risk of CNS (Central Nervous System) bleeding.
  • At risk of suicide in the opinion of the investigator.
  • Alcohol and/or substance abuse or dependence within the past 2 years and during the study.
  • Inability to tolerate MRI procedures or contraindication to MRI, including, but not limited to, presence of pacemakers not compatible with MRI, aneurysm clips, artificial heart valves, ear implants, or foreign metal objects in the eyes, skin, or body that would contraindicate an MRI scan; or any other clinical history or examination finding that, in the judgment of the investigator, would pose a potential hazard in combination with MRI.
  • Pregnant or lactating, or intending to become pregnant during the study.
  • Any other severe or unstable medical condition that, in the opinion of the investigator or Sponsor, could be expected to progress, recur, or change to such an extent that it could put the patient at special risk, bias the assessment of the clinical or mental status of the patient to a significant degree, or interfere with the patient's ability to complete the study assessments.
