Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Serious and Non-serious Treatment-emergent Adverse Events Who Have Completed 24 Weeks of Extension Study Treatment [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    Rate of treatment-emergent adverse events in subjects who have completed (ie, reached 6-week endpoint) of Study D1050235 (NCT00868452), Study D1050236 (NCT00868699) or Study D1050292 (NCT01284517)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Open-label Extension Baseline to Week 24 (Month 6/LOCF Endpoint) in Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) Total Score [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    The MADRS is a clinician-rated assessment of the subject's level of depression. Ten items are rated on a Likert scale, from 0="Normal" to 6="Most Severe". The MADRS total score is calculated as the sum of ten items: reported sadness, apparent sadness, inner tension, reduced sleep, reduced appetite, concentration difficulties, lassitude, inability to feel, pessimistic thoughts, and suicidal thoughts. The MADRS total score ranges from 0 to 60. Higher scores are associated with greater severity.

  • Change From Open-label Extension Baseline to Week 24 (Month 6/LOCF Endpoint) in Clinical Global Impressions Bipolar Version, Severity of Illness (CGI-BP-S) Score (Depression) [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]
    This CGI-BP-S is a clinician-rated assessment of the subjects current severity of depression and ranges from 1="Normal, not ill" to 7="Very severly ill". Higher scores are associated with greater severity.
