Active Comparator: RISPERDAL CONSTA
RISPERDAL CONSTA 25-50 mg eq every 2 weeks
Drug: RISPERDAL CONSTA
RISPERDAL CONSTA: Type=exact number, unit=mg, number=25, 37.5, or 50, form=suspension for injection, route=Intramuscular use. One i.m. injection of RISPERDAL CONSTA 25-50 mg eq every 2 weeks at V4, V6, V7, V8, V9, and V10. PALIPERIDONE PALMITATE PLACEBO: Form=suspension for injection, route=Intramuscular use. One i.m. injection every 2 weeks at Baseline and at V4, V7, and V9. RISPERIDONE: Type=up to, unit=mg, number=1 to 6, form=Tablet, route=Oral Use. One tablet for the first 4 weeks (28 days) of the DB treatment period.
Paliperidone Palmitate 50-150 mg eq every 4 wks
Drug: Paliperidone palmitate
PALIPERIDONE PALMITATE: Type=exact number, unit=mg, number=50, 100, or 150, form=suspension for injection, route=Intramuscular use. One i.m. injection of Paliperidone palmitate 50-150 mg eq every 4 wks at Baseline, V4, V7, and V9. RISPERDAL CONSTA PLACEBO: Form=suspension for injection, route=Intramuscular use. One i.m. injection every 4 weeks at Baseline, V4, V7, and V9.
- Change in the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) Total Score for Schizophrenia [ Time Frame: Baseline to the last postrandomization assessment in the double-blind treatment period (approximately 13 weeks) ]The PANSS scale is used to assess the neuropsychiatric symptoms of schizophrenia. The 30-item PANSS scale provides a total score (sum of the scores of all 30 items) and scores for 3 subscales, the positive subscale (7 items), the negative subscale (7 items),and the general psychopathology subscale (16 items), each item rated on a scale of 1 (absent) to 7 (extreme).
- The Change From Baseline for the CGI-S Score [ Time Frame: Baseline to the last postrandomization assessment in the double-blind treatment period (approximately 13 weeks)] ]The CGI-S rating scale is used to rate the severity of a patient's psychotic condition on a 7-point scale ranging from 1 (not ill) to 7 (extremely severe). This scale permits a global evaluation of the patient's condition at a given time. A qualified rater administered the CGI-S.
- The Change From Baseline in the PSP Score [ Time Frame: Baseline to the last postrandomization assessment in the double-blind treatment period (approximately 13 weeks) ]The PSP scale is used to assess the degree of dysfunction a patient exhibits over a 7-day period within 4 domains of behavior: socially useful activities, personal and social relationships, self-care, and disturbing and aggressive behavior. The results of the assessment are converted to a numeric score. A score between 71 and 100 indicates a mild degree of difficulty; a score between 31 and 70 indicates a moderate degree of dysfunction, and a patient with a score of 30 or less has functioning so poor he or she requires intensive supervision.
