Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy of 12.5 or 50 mg doses of NBI-98854 administered once daily for the treatment of tardive dyskinesia (TD) symptoms [ Time Frame: 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Abnormal Involuntary Movements Scale (AIMS)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy of 12.5 or 50 mg doses of NBI-98854 administered once daily for the treatment of tardive dyskinesia (TD) symptoms [ Time Frame: 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clinical Global Impression of Tardive Dyskinesia (CGI-TD) and a Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC) questionnaire.

  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events following dosing with NBI-98854 [ Time Frame: 35 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Safety and tolerability monitoring will include the following assessments:

    • Adverse Events
    • Clinical lab tests (hematology, serum chemistry, and urinalysis)
    • Vital signs
    • Physical examinations
    • 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECG)
    • Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale (BPRS)
    • Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS)
    • Calgary Depression Scale for Schizophrenia (CDSS)
    • Barnes Akathisia Rating Scale (BARS)
    • Simpson-Angus Scale (SAS)
    • Serum Prolactin

  • Evaluation of plasma exposure measures of NBI-98854 following repeated daily doses (12.5 and 50 mg) of NBI-98854. [ Time Frame: 35 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Blood samples will be collected and analyzed to evaluate drug and metabolite plasma concentrations.
