Pfizer
  Purpose
This study is a 26 week, randomized, parallel group, double blind comparison of PF-02545920 5 mg, PF-02545920 20 mg, and placebo dosed BID in the treatment of motor impairment of subjects with Huntington's Disease. A total of approximately 260 subjects are planned to be randomized in the study. Primary endpoint is the change from baseline in the Total Motor Score (TMS) assessment of the Unified Huntington Disease Rating Scale (UHDRS) after 26 weeks of treatment. secondary endpoints will include change from baseline in the Total Maximum Chorea (TMC) score of the UHDRS after 13 and 26 weeks of treatment and Clinical Global Impression-Improvement score after 13 and 26 weeks of treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in UHDRS Total Motor Score (TMS) after 26 weeks of treatment [ Time Frame: 26 week ]
    UHDRS TMS


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • White blood count and absolute neutrophil count [ Time Frame: Baseline to Follow-up visit (Day 189) ]
    Monitoring of ANC and WBC

  • Extrapyramidal symptoms [ Time Frame: Baseline to Follow-up visit (Day 189) ]
    Occurence of dystonia or akathisia

  • Change from baseline in the Total Maximum Chorea (TMC) score of the UHDRS after 13 and 26 weeks of treatment [ Time Frame: 13 and 26 wks ]
    UHDRS TMC

  • Clinical Global Impression-Improvement score after 13 and 26 weeks of treatment. [ Time Frame: 13 and 26 weeks ]
    CGI

  • Number of Participants with categorical scores on the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Follow-up Visit (Day 189) ]
    C-SSRS assessed whether participant experienced following: completed suicide (1), suicide attempt (2) (response of "Yes" on "actual attempt"), preparatory acts toward imminent suicidal behavior (3)("Yes" on "preparatory acts or behavior"), suicidal ideation (4) ("Yes" on "wish to be dead", "non-specific active suicidal thoughts", "active suicidal ideation with methods without intent to act or some intent to act, without specific plan or with specific plan and intent), any suicidal behavior or ideation, self-injurious behavior (7)("Yes" on "Has subject engaged in non-suicidal self-injurious behavior").
