Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group Study With Open-Label Extension Phase of Lorcaserin as Adjunctive Treatment in Subjects With Dravet Syndrome
Actual Study Start Date : September 23, 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 15, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 8, 2021


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Lorcaserin (Core Study and Open-label Extension Phase)
Participants will be randomized to receive lorcaserin administered as an oral suspension, twice daily for 14 weeks during the core treatment period. Dose will be based on body weight as follows: target dose for participants weighing 10 to less than (<) 20, 20 to <40, and greater than or equal to (>=) 40 kilogram (kg) will be 5, 10, and 20 milligram per day (mg/day) respectively. Based on clinical response and tolerability and within 2 weeks of treatment, dose can be increased up to 10, 20 mg/day for participants weighing 10 to <20, 20 to <40 kg respectively. Participants completing the core treatment period will enter a 12-week extension phase and will receive lorcaserin.
Drug: Lorcaserin
Lorcaserin oral tablet, administered as oral suspension.
Other Name: E2023

Placebo Comparator: Placebo (Core Study) + Lorcaserin (Open-label Extension Phase)
Participants will be randomized to receive lorcaserin matching placebo administered as an oral suspension, twice daily for 14 weeks during the core treatment period. Dose will be based on body weight as follows: target dose for participants weighing 10 to <20, 20 to <40, and >=40 kg will be 5, 10, and 20 mg/day respectively. Based on clinical response and tolerability and within 2 weeks of treatment, dose can be increased up to 10, 20 mg/day for participants weighing 10 to <20, 20 to <40 kg respectively. Participants completing the core treatment period will enter a 12-week extension phase and will receive lorcaserin.
Drug: Placebo
Placebo matching to lorcaserin oral tablet, administered as oral suspension.

Drug: Lorcaserin
Lorcaserin oral tablet, administered as oral suspension.
Other Name: E2023




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percent Change From Baseline in Convulsive Seizure Frequency Per 28 Days During the Core Treatment Period (14 Weeks) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 14 ]
    Seizure frequency will be based on number of seizures per 28 days, calculated during the baseline period and treatment period as the number of seizures during each respective period divided by the number of non-missing days during each respective period, multiplied by 28.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of 50% Responders for Convulsive Seizures in the Core Treatment Period (14 Weeks) Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 14 ]
    A 50 percent (%) responder is defined as a participant with at least 50% reduction in frequency of convulsive seizures per 28 days compared to baseline.

  2. Percentage of Participants who are Free From Convulsive Seizures in the Core Treatment Period (14 Weeks) [ Time Frame: Up to 14 Weeks ]
  3. Maximum Lorcaserin Plasma Concentration at Steady-state (Cmax,ss) in the Core Treatment Period (14 Weeks) [ Time Frame: Up to 14 Weeks ]
  4. Area Under the Plasma Lorcaserin Concentration-time Curve at Steady-state (AUC,ss) in the Core Treatment Period (14 Weeks) [ Time Frame: Up to 14 Weeks ]
