Brief Summary:
This study is a multicenter, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled Phase 3 study comparing LIPUS-Brain transcranial low-intensity pulsed-wave ultrasound device to placebo in patients with Early Alzheimer's Disease. The primary objective of the study is to assess changes in ADAS-J-cog-14 scores from baseline to 72 weeks.

  4. Changes in J-ZBI scores from baseline to Week 24, 48 and 72 [ Time Frame: Performed at Week 24, 48 and 72 ]
  5. Changes in WMS-R scores from baseline to Week 24, 48 and 72 [ Time Frame: Performed at Week 24, 48 and 72 ]
  6. Changes in MMSE-J scores from baseline to Week 24, 48 and 72 [ Time Frame: Performed at Week 24, 48 and 72 ]
  7. Changes in FAQ scores from baseline to Week 24, 48 and 72 [ Time Frame: Performed at Week 24, 48 and 72 ]
  8. Changes in EQ-5D-5L scores from baseline to Week 24, 48 and 72 [ Time Frame: Performed at Week 24, 48 and 72 ]
  9. Changes in ABC Dementia scale scores from baseline to Week 24, 48 and 72 [ Time Frame: Performed at Week 24, 48 and 72 ]
  10. Changes in each 14 item of ADAS-J-cog-14 score from baseline to Week 24, 48 and 72 [ Time Frame: Performed at Week 24, 48 and 72 ]
  11. Prevalence of responders at Week 24, 48, and 72 defined as those with no deterioration or even improvement in ADAS-J-cog-14 scores [ Time Frame: Performed at Week 24, 48 and 72 ]
  12. Transition rate from MCI due to AD to AD at Week 72 [ Time Frame: Performed at Week 72 ]
  13. Termination due to aggravation of dementia symptoms [ Time Frame: Performed up to 96 weeks ]
    If medication needs to be started or changed, dementia is considered worsening.
