  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of two doses (50 and 100 mg) of NBI-98854 administered once daily for the treatment of Tardive Dyskinesia (TD) symptoms.

Condition Intervention Phase
Tardive Dyskinesia Drug: NBI-98854 Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of NBI-98854 for the Treatment of Tardive Dyskinesia in Subjects With Schizophrenia or Schizoaffective Disorder

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale (AIMS) Dyskinesia Total Score Change From Baseline at Week 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 6 ]
    The AIMS Total Dyskinesia Score rates a total of 7 items, rating involuntary movement from 0 (no dyskinesia) to 4 (severe dyskinesia). Items 1 through 7 include facial and oral movements (Items 1-4), extremity movements (Items 5-6), and trunk movements (Item 7). The AIMS dyskinesia total score for Items 1-7 ranges from 0 to 28; a higher score reflects increased severity. The primary efficacy endpoint was the change from baseline in the AIMS dyskinesia total score at Week 6 between the pooled NBI-98854 50+100 mg group and placebo group analyzed using the ANCOVA model (LOCF, ITT analysis set).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical Global Impression - Global Improvement of TD (CGI-TD) [ Time Frame: Week 6 ]
    Clinician's perspective of the participant's overall improvement of TD symptoms over time. The CGI-TD is based on a 7-point scale (range: 1=very much improved to 7=very much worse). The ANOVA analysis of CGI-TD was conducted for the pooled NBI-98854 50+100 mg group and placebo group.

  • Clinical Global Impression - Global Improvement of TD (CGI-TD) at Week 2 [ Time Frame: Week 2 ]
    Clinician's perspective of the participant's overall improvement of TD symptoms over time. The CGI-TD is based on a 7-point scale (range: 1=very much improved to 7=very much worse).

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase 2, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of two doses (50 and 100 mg) of NBI-98854 administered once daily for up to 2 weeks. The study will also allow for an evaluation of the efficacy of NBI-98854 50 mg once daily for up to 6 weeks and the safety and tolerability of NBI 98854 50 mg once daily for up to 12 weeks.

The double-blind placebo-controlled treatment period the study has three arms:

  • NBI-98854 50 mg once daily for 6 weeks
  • NBI-98854 100 mg once daily for 2 weeks followed by 50 mg once daily for the remaining 4 weeks
  • placebo

At the end of the 6-week placebo-controlled double-blind treatment period, subjects will continue in the study for an additional 6-week open-label period where all subjects who have completed the double-blind treatment period will receive NBI-98854 50 mg once daily. Two and four weeks after the last dose of study drug, follow-up assessments will be performed.
