Detailed Description:

Patients eligible to enroll into this rollover protocol will begin study treatment within 2-5 days of their Day 28 study termination visit in Protocol 501-CL-003. Patients who met the primary efficacy response criterion in Protocol 501-CL-003 will continue receiving the same study treatment to which they were assigned in the previous protocol in a double-blinded manner, these being one of the following 5 treatments:

  • AKR-501 2.5 mg daily
  • AKR-501 5 mg daily
  • AKR-501 10 mg daily
  • AKR-501 20 mg daily
  • Placebo

Patients who did not meet the primary efficacy response criterion in Protocol 501-CL-003 who otherwise meet the eligibility criteria for this rollover protocol will be offered open label AKR-501 10 mg daily.

This is a parallel group, rollover study.
