What is this study about?
This trial is testing an investigational drug candidate, nelotanserin, to determine if it is safe and effective in treating visual hallucinations in people with Lewy body dementia.

Participants who complete the study may be eligible for an open-label extension in which all participants will receive the nelotanserin.
Participants in this study will attend an initial screening visit plus another 7 visits over approximately 18 weeks. Transportation assistance to and from study visits may be available.
