This enrollment milestone means the first biomarker results will be available at the end of 2016, with the final cognitive endpoint expected in late 2019. This first stage will determine the effects of two drugs targeting amyloid plaques, which are believed by some scientists to be the first step in the process leading to cognitive impairment.
