Change in Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 42 ]

Change from baseline to last observed post-baseline value in PANSS total score, using the last observation carried forward.

This scale consists of symptom constructs (7 positive, 7 negative, 16 general psychopathology), each to be rated on a 7-point scale of severity with 1 being absent to 7 being extreme. Minimum score is 30 which is best outcome; maximum score is 210 for worse outcome.

  • Change in Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) Positive Subscale Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 42 ]

    Change from baseline to last observed post-baseline value in PANSS positive subscale score, using the last observation carried forward.

    Scale consists of 7 positive symptom constructs each to be rated on a 7- point scale of severity with 1 = absent to 7 = extreme. Minimum score is 7 which is best outcome; maximum score is 49 for worse outcome.

  • Change in Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) Negative Subscale Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 42 ]

    Change from baseline to last observed post-baseline value in PANSS Negative Subscale score, using the last observation carried forward.

  • Change in Clinical Global Impression (CGI) Severity Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 42 ]

    Change from baseline to last observed post-baseline value in CGI severity score, using the last observation carried forward.

    Scale refers to the global impression of the subject with respect to severity of the illness. The scale rates the subject's severity of illness from 0 (not rated) to 1 (least severe) to 7 (most severe).

  • Clinical Global Impression (CGI) Improvement Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 42 ]

    Last observed post-baseline value in CGI improvement score, using the last observation carried forward.

    Scale refers to the global impression of the subject with respect to improvement of the illness. The scale rates the subject's severity of illness from 0 (not rated) to 1 (least severe) to 7 (most severe).

  • Change in Children's Global Assessment Scale (CGAS) Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 42 ]

    Change from baseline to last observed post-baseline value in CGAS score, using the last observation carried forward.

    Scale is a 100-point scale measuring psychological, social, and school functioning for children aged 6 to 17 years. Minimum scores ranged from 1-10, representing the need for constant supervision (worse outcome) to maximum scores of 91-100, representing superior functioning (better outcome).

  • Change in Pediatric Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction (PQLES) Questionnaire Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 42 ]

    Change from baseline to last observed post-baseline value in PQLES total score, using the last observation carried forward.

    Scale consists of 14 items pertaining to daily life activities and satisfaction, and an overall assessment item. Each item will be rated on a five-point scale (1=very poor, 2=poor, 3=fair, 4=good, 5=very good) with a minimum score of 14 (better outcome) and a maximum score of 70 (worse outcome).

  • Patients Achieving Remission [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 42 ]
    The number of subjects achieving remission. Remission was defined as a score of mild or less (≤ 3) for items P1, P2, P3, N1, N4, N6, G5, and G9 in the PANSS score.
