    after 12 weeks of treatment:
    - Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI)
    - Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE)
    - Cognitive Fluctuation Inventory (CFI)
    - Clinician Global Impression of Change in Dementia with Lewy Bodies (CGIC-DLB)
    3- To characterize the population pharmacokinetics (PPK) of E2027 in subjects with DLB, including evaluation of the effects of intrinsic and extrinsic factors on E2027 PK
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Male or female, age 50 to 85 years, inclusive at time of consent.
    2. Meet criteria for probable DLB (as defined by the 4th report of the DLB Consortium)
    (Appendix 1). Specific situations regarding the use the imaging are described below:
    a. have 1 core clinical feature only by the investigator and who did not have previous reports of
    DAT brain imaging scan, MIBG scan or polysomnography (PSG) will undertake DAT brain
    imaging scan or MIBG scan as organized by the investigator.
    b. have 2 or more core clinical features by the investigator but who are judged as having only
    1 core clinical feature by central reviewer and who did not have previous reports of DAT
    brain imaging scan, MIBG scan or PSG may undertake DAT brain imaging scan or MIBG
    scan after discussion with the sponsor medical monitor.
    c. have 2 or more core clinical features by the investigator and the central reviewer and who
    did not have previous reports of DAT brain imaging scan, MIBG scan or PSG may undertake DAT brain imaging scan or MIBG scan after discussion with the sponsor medical
    monitor if the investigator considers that imaging is necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
    3. MMSE >14 and <26 at Screening Visit.
    4. Has experienced visual hallucinations during the past 4 weeks before Screening Visit.
    5. If receiving AChEIs, must have been on a stable dose for at least 12 weeks before Screening
    Visit, with no plans for dose adjustment during the study. Treatment-naïve subjects can be
    entered into the study but there should be no plans to initiate treatment with AChEIs from
    Screening to the end of the study.
    6. If receiving memantine, must have been on a stable dose for at least
    12 weeks before Screening Visit, with no plans for dose adjustment during the study. Treatment naïve subjects can be
    entered into the study but there should be no plans to initiate treatment with memantine from Screening to the end of the study. (revised per Amendment 03)
    7.Must have an identified caregiver or informant who is willing and able to provide follow-up
    information on the subject throughout the course of the study. This person must, in the opinion of
    the investigator, not be suffering from cognitive impairment, be sufficiently familiar with the
    subject and spend sufficient time with the subject on a regular basis such that the caregiver or
    informant can reliably fulfill the study requirements and must provide separate written consent.
    The caregiver or informant should normally be residing with the subject. If the caregiver or
    informant is not residing with the subject, the investigator has to be satisfied that the subject can
    contact the caregiver or informant readily during the times when the caregiver or informant is not
    with the subject. As a guide the caregiver or informant should have contact with the subject on at
    least 4 days a week and each day for a total of at least 5 hours. If in doubt about whether a
    subject's care arrangements are suitable for inclusion, the investigator should discuss this with the
    medical monitor. At all visits caregivers or informants need to attend the visit in person along
    with the subject. If during the study, the designated caregiver or informant relinquishes his/her
    responsibilities as caregiver or informant, a replacement caregiver or informant who meets the
    criteria above and who has similar knowledge of the subject’s clinical status from Baseline
    throughout the Treatment Period must be found. If no such replacement caregiver or informant is
    available, the subject must be discontinued from the study.
    8. Provide written informed consent. If a subject lacks capacity to consent in the investigator's
    opinion, the subject's assent should be obtained, as required in accordance with local laws,
    regulations and customs, plus the written informed consent of a legal representative should be
    obtained (capacity to consent and definition of legal representative should be determined in
    accordance with applicable local laws and regulations).
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Any neurological condition that may be contributing to cognitive impairment above and beyond those caused by the subject’s DLB, including any comorbidities detected by clinical assessment or MRI.
    2. History of transient ischemic attacks or stroke within 12 months of Screening.
    3. Modified Hachinski Ischemic Scale >4.
    4. Parkinsonian (extrapyramidal) features with Hoehn & Yahr stage IV or higher.
    5. Any major psychiatric diagnosis, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and current major depressive disorder as per Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Fifth Edition (DSM-V).
    6. GDS score >8.
    7. Evidence of other clinically significant lesions that suggest a dementia diagnosis other than DLB on brain MRI at Screening. All MRIs will be acquired using a standardized procedure that will
    be outlined in the Imaging Charter and Imaging Acquisition Guidelines (IAG) and will be read by an approved centralized reader.
    8. Other significant pathological findings on brain MRI at Screening, including but not limited to: any macrohemorrhage (greater than 10 mm at greatest diameter); an area of superficial siderosis; evidence of cerebral contusion, encephalomalacia, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, or infective lesions; evidence of multiple lacunar infarcts or stroke involving a major vascular territory, severe small vessel or white matter disease; space occupying lesions; or brain tumors [however, lesions diagnosed as meningiomas or arachnoid cysts and less than or equal to 1 cm at their greatest diameter need not be exclusionary])
    9. Hypersensitivity to E2027 or any of the excipients.
    10. A prolonged corrected QT interval calculated using Fridericia’s formula (QTcF) as demonstrated by triplicate ECG at the Screening or Baseline Visit (ie, mean value >450 msec).
    11. Had symptomatic orthostatic hypotension or symptomatic orthostatic tachycardia which resulted in hospitalization or urgent medical review in hospital in the past 12 months before Screening.
    12. Has a “yes” answer to C-SSRS suicidal ideation Type 4 or 5, or any suicidal behavior assessment within 6 months before Screening, at Screening, or at the Baseline Visit, or has been hospitalized or treated for suicidal behavior in the past 5 years before Screening.
    13. Taking any of the prohibited medications or not meeting the requirements regarding stable doses of permitted medications.
    14. Participation in a clinical study involving any investigational drug/device for DLB within 6 months before Screening or any other investigational drug/device in the 8 weeks or 5 half-lives
    (whichever is longer) of the study medication before Screening unless it can be documented that the subject was in a placebo treatment arm.
    15. Females of childbearing potential.
    (NOTE: All females will be considered to be of childbearing potential unless they are postmenopausal [amenorrheic for at least 12 consecutive months, in the appropriate age group,
    and without other known or suspected cause] or have been sterilized surgically [ie, bilateral tubal ligation, total hysterectomy, or bilateral oophorectomy, all with surgery at least 1 month before dosing]).
    16. For subjects who participate in the CSF substudy, the following exclusions apply:
    a. A bleeding disorder that is not under adequate control (including a plate count <50,000, international normalized ratio [INR] >1.5 or partial thromboplastin time [PTT] > upper limit
    of normal [ULN]).
    b. Any contraindications to LP (eg, lower spinal malformation on physical examination, local spinal infection or other abnormality, or obesity to the extent that it makes LP technically difficult).
