Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Absolute Change in Total Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) Score [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 8) to Day 92 (end of study Part A) ]

    Change from baseline (Day 8) to Day 92 (end of study Part A).

    The PANSS is a 30-item scale measuring severity of schizophrenia symptoms. Symptom severity for each item is rated on a 7-point scale (1 = absent; 7 = extreme), and the total score is added together, with a minimum score of 30 and a maximum score of 210. A higher score indicates more severe symptoms, while a lower score indicates less severe symptoms.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Change in Body Weight (Kilogram) From Baseline to Day 92 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 8) to Day 92 (end of study Part A) ]
    Percent change from baseline (Day 8) to the end of Part A (Day 92)

  2. Absolute Change in Body Weight (kg) From Baseline to Day 92 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 8) to Day 92 (end of study Part A) ]
    Change from randomization (Day 8) to the end of Part A (Week 12; Day 92)

  3. Percentage of Subjects Exhibiting Significant Weight Gain at Day 92 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 8) to Day 92 (end of study Part A) ]
    Significant weight gain will include a >=5%, >= 7%, or >=10% gain in body weight from baseline (Day 8) to Day 92 (end of study Part A)

  4. Change in Clinical Global Impressions - Severity (CGI-S) From Baseline to Day 92 [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 8) to Day 92 (end of study Part A) ]

    Change in CGI-S score from baseline (Day 8) to the end of Part A (Week 12; Day 92).

    The CGI-S is a 7-point scale intended to measure the severity of a patient's illness at the time of assessment. Scores range from 1 (normal) to 7(extremely ill), so a higher score is correlative to more severe illness.
