|Official Title:||12- Week Open Label Treatment of Refractory Bipolar Depression (BD) With Combination of Depakote ER (DEP) and Aripiprazole (AZP)|
|Study Start Date :||September 2004|
|Primary Completion Date :||September 2009|
|Study Completion Date :||September 2009|
Aripiprazole open-label in doses ranging from 5-30mg QD adjunct to Divalproex 500-2500mg QD.
Aripiprazole5mg - 30mg, every day (QD), for 12 weeks.
- Primary Measure:Reduction in Depression Symptoms [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]Primary efficacy will be assessed by the proportion of patients achieving a 50% reduction (range 0- 60, higher the number the more depressed) on the Montgomery Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) (defined as response) concomitant with a Clinical Global Impression Scale(CGI-S) improvement of 1 or 2 (range 0-7, higher the number the more severe the overall bipolar symptoms).
