  • Cell Counts and IL-6 concentration in CSF for Neuro-BD [ Time Frame: Week 14, Week 30, Week 54 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from Baseline in Specific Clinical Symptom for each type BD [ Time Frame: Week 0, 2, 6, then every 4 weeks after Week 14 up to Week 46 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 15
Study Start Date: January 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: TA-650 Drug: TA-650
TA-650 will be intravenously infused at a dosage of 5 mg/kg slowly over a period of more than 2 hours at the first administration (weeks 0), 2, and 6, and then every 8 weeks up to week 46. If the criteria for a dosage escalation are met at the evaluation after week 30, TA-650 will be administered at a dosage of 10 mg/kg after week 30.
