Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
The first participant entered the study on 08 Jun 2007, and the last participant completed the study on 19 Jan 2010. The study was conducted at 167 centers in Japan. 164 study centers enrolled at least 1 participant.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
In total, 1439 participants were screened for study eligibility; 159 participants were screening failures and were not randomized. Therefore, 1280 participants (640 in each group) were randomized.

Reporting Groups
