Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Subjects Experiencing SAEs [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 23 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Percentage of Subjects Experiencing SAEs. The incidences of SAEs are summarized by system organ class in CT-8.5.1; by system organ class and MedDRA preferred term and by system organ class, MedDRA preferred term, and severity.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Change in Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Change from baseline to the last scheduled post-baseline evaluation in PANSS total score, using observed cases (assessments performed at baseline and weeks 4, 12, and 26).

    This scale consists of symptom constructs (7 positive, 7 negative, 16 general psychopathology), each to be rated on a 7-point scale of severity with 1 being absent to 7 being extreme. Minimum score is 30 which is best outcome; maximum score is 210 for worse outcome.


  • Change in Young Mania Rating Scale (Y-MRS) Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 26 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Change from baseline to last scheduled post-baseline evaluation in YMRS total score, using observed cases (assessments performed at baseline and weeks 4, 12, and 26).

    The Y-MRS consists of 11 items assessing the core symptoms of mania. Each item has 5 grades of severity. Minimum score on the scale is 0 (absent or normal). Maximum score on the scale is 60 (worse outcome or more severe symptoms).
