Brief Summary:

The primary objective of this study was to assess the maintenance of efficacy of LY2216684 compared with placebo as adjunctive therapy to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) as measured by the time-to-symptom reemergence among participants with major depressive disorder (MDD) who met randomization criteria with adjunctive LY2216684 during the stabilization period.

This trial consists of two distinct periods: an open-label treatment period, which consists of two parts, 8 weeks acute open-label with movement to 12 weeks open-label stabilization if participants are in remission at end of 8 weeks (open-label for 20 weeks total) followed by a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled period for 24 weeks.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: LY2216684 + SSRI

Acute Open-label (OL) Period: Participants received a starting dose of 12 milligrams (mg) LY2216684, administered orally, once daily for at least 2 weeks, adjunctive to a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Then, based on efficacy and tolerability, the dose could be increased to 18 mg (and decreased back to 12 mg) over the next 6 weeks.

Stabilization OL Period: Participants meeting remission criteria continued on the same dose of LY2216684 for an additional 12 weeks. Participants who discontinued early during either OL Period were discontinued abruptly from LY2216684.

Double-blind (DB) Randomized Withdrawal Period: At 20 weeks, participants meeting criteria for randomization continued their current dose of LY2216684 for another 24 weeks. Participants who completed this period or discontinued early were randomized to abrupt (placebo for 2 weeks) or tapered (12 mg LY2216684 for 4 days, 6 mg LY2216684 for 4 days, then placebo for 6 days) discontinuation of LY2216684.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Who Meet Criteria for Re-emergence of Depressive Symptoms Estimated by Kaplan-Meier Product Limit Method (Double-blind Randomized Withdrawal Period) [ Time Frame: Randomization up to 44 weeks ]
    Participants meeting any of the following criteria were determined as having major depressive disorder symptom re-emergence: 1) a Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) total score greater ≥14 or a Clinical Global Impressions of Severity (CGI-S) increase of 2 or more points from Week 18 at 2 consecutive visits or 2) discontinuation due to lack of efficacy/worsening of depression/suicidality. Time from randomization to the first visit at which the participant met the reemergence criteria was calculated. The percentage of participants who meet criteria was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier product limit method. The MADRS is a rating scale for severity of depressive mood symptoms and has a 10-item checklist with items rated on a scale of 0-6, for a total score range of 0 (low severity) to 60 (high severity). CGI-S measures severity of depression at the time of assessment compared with the start of treatment. Scores range from 1 (normal, not at all ill) to 7 (extremely ill).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With Re-emergence of Depressive Symptoms (Double-blind Randomized Withdrawal Period) [ Time Frame: Week 44 ]
    Participants meeting any of the following criteria were determined as having major depressive disorder symptom re-emergence: 1) a Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) total score greater ≥14 or a Clinical Global Impressions of Severity (CGI-S) increase of 2 or more points from Week 18 at 2 consecutive visits or 2) discontinuation due to lack of efficacy/worsening of depression/suicidality. The percentage of participants with re-emergence of depressive symptoms was calculated by dividing the number of participants who meet any of the criteria by the total number of participants analyzed, multiplied by 100. The MADRS is a rating scale for severity of depressive mood symptoms and has a 10-item checklist with items rated on a scale of 0-6, for a total score range of 0 (low severity) to 60 (high severity). CGI-S measures severity of depression at the time of assessment compared with the start of treatment. Scores range from 1 (normal, not at all ill) to 7 (extremely ill).

  2. Change From Randomization in the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) Total Score and Individual Item Scores at Week 44 (Double-blind Randomized Withdrawal Period) [ Time Frame: Randomization, Week 44 ]
    Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) is a rating scale for severity of depressive mood symptoms. The MADRS has a 10-item checklist (sadness [apparent], sadness [reported], inner tension, reduced sleep, reduced appetite, concentration difficulties, lassitude, inability to feel, pessimistic thoughts, and suicidal thoughts). Items are rated on a scale of 0-6, for a total score range of 0 (low severity of depressive symptoms) to 60 (high severity of depressive symptoms). Least Squares (LS) means were calculated using a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis which includes terms for the fixed categorical effects of treatment, country, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, as well as the continuous, fixed covariates of baseline MADRS total score (individual item score) and baseline MADRS total score (individual item score)-by-visit interaction.

Each item is rated on a 4-point scale (0-3), giving maximum scores of 21 for anxiety and depression. Scores of 11 or more on either subscale are considered to be a 'significant' case of psychological morbidity, while scores of 8-10 represent 'borderline' and 0-7 represent 'normal'. Least Squares (LS) means were calculated using a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis which included terms for the fixed categorical effects of treatment, country, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, as well as the continuous, fixed covariates of baseline subscale score and baseline subscale score-by-visit interaction.

  4. Change From Randomization in the Clinical Global Impression of Severity (CGI-S) Scores at Week 44 (Double-blind Randomized Withdrawal Period) [ Time Frame: Randomization, Week 44 ]
    The Clinical Global Impression of Severity (CGI-S) instrument is used to record the severity of mental illness at the time of assessment. Scores range from 1 (normal, not at all ill) to 7 (among the most extremely ill participants). Least Squares (LS) means were calculated using a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis which included terms for the fixed categorical effects of treatment, country, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, as well as the continuous, fixed covariates of baseline CGI-S score and baseline CGI-S score-by-visit interaction.

  5. Change From Randomization in the Fatigue Associated With Depression (FAsD) Average Score, Experience Subscale Score, and Impact Subscale Score at Week 44 (Double-blind Randomized Withdrawal Period) [ Time Frame: Randomization, Week 44 ]
    The FAsD is a 13-item participant-rated scale. Items 1-6 ask how often participants experience different aspects of fatigue with responses from 1 (never) to 5 (always). Items 7-13 ask how often fatigue impacts various aspects of the participant's lives with responses from 1 (not at all) to 5 (very much). The experience subscale score is derived by taking the mean of Items 1-6. The impact subscale score is derived by taking the mean of applicable Items 7-13. The average score is the mean of applicable Items 1-13. Item 12 applies only to participants with a spouse or significant other and Item 13 applies to participants who had a job or who went to school. Least Squares (LS) means were calculated using a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis which included terms for the fixed categorical effects of treatment, country, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, as well as the continuous, fixed covariates of baseline score and baseline score-by-visit interaction.

    The Sheehan Disability Scale (SDS) is completed by the participant and used to assess the effect of the participant's symptoms on their work (work/school impairment score), social life (social life/leisure activities impairment score), and family life (family life/home responsibilities impairment score). Each item is measured on a 0 (not at all) to 10 (extremely) point scale with higher values indicating greater disruption. Least Squares (LS) means were calculated using a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis which included terms for the fixed categorical effects of treatment, country, visit, and treatment-by-visit interaction, as well as the continuous, fixed covariates of baseline score and baseline score-by-visit interaction

  7. Change From Randomization in the EuroQol Questionnaire-5 Dimension (EQ-5D) Index Scores, Visual Analog Scale up to Week 44 (Double-blind Randomized Withdrawal Period) [ Time Frame: Randomization, up to Week 44 ]
    The EQ-5D, a health-related, quality-of-life instrument, contains 2 parts: a health status profile and a visual analog scale (VAS). The profile allows participants to rate their health state in 5 health domains: mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, and mood using a 3-level scale (no problem, some problems, and major problems). These dimensions are converted into weighted health-state index scores according to United States (US) and United Kingdom (UK) population-based algorithms. The US and UK based index scores range from -0.11 to 1.0 (where a score of 1.0 indicates perfect health) and from -0.59 (severe problems in all 5 dimensions) to 1.0 (no problem in any dimension), respectively. The VAS consists of participants rating their current health state from 0 (worst imaginable health state) to 100 (best imaginable health). Least Squares (LS) means were calculated using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) model with main effects of treatment, country, and baseline score.

  8. Number of Participants With Treatment-emergent Suicidal Ideation and Behaviors Assessed by Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) (Double-blind Randomized Withdrawal Period) [ Time Frame: Randomization through Week 44 ]
    The Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) captures occurrence, severity, and frequency of suicide-related thoughts and behaviors. Suicidal ideation is defined as a "yes" answer to any 1 of 5 suicidal ideation questions, which includes a wish to be dead and 4 different categories of active suicidal ideation. Suicidal behavior is defined as a "yes" answer to any of 5 suicidal behavior questions: preparatory acts or behavior, aborted attempt, interrupted attempt, actual attempt, and completed suicide. Suicidal ideation and behavior are defined as treatment-emergent (TE) if not present during the period up through randomization. A summary of serious and other non-serious adverse events regardless of causality is located in the Reported Adverse Event module.
