  • Time to Onset of Near-syncopal Symptoms During Tilt Table Testing [ Time Frame: 1 hour post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The tilt table test is a 10-minute assessment performed using a manual or automated tilt table in a specialized laboratory. Subjects were moved onto the horizontal table and secured to the table with straps to prevent injury. After an equilibration period of at least 10 minutes with the subject at rest, the test began and the head of the tilt table was elevated to a 70-degree angle over a period of up to 30 seconds. The head-up tilt table test in this study was conducted 1 hour after administration of the study medication. The endpoint was a confirmed report of a near-syncopal symptom(s) (of sufficient severity that caused the patient to ask that the tilt table be returned to the horizontal position). Symptoms of near syncope were defined as dizziness, lightheadedness, feeling faint, or feeling like the subject might black out.
  • Time to Onset of Near-syncopal Symptoms During Tilt Table Testing Analysis #2 [ Time Frame: 1 hour post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Symptoms of near syncope were defined as dizziness, lightheadedness, feeling faint, or feeling like the subject might black out. In this outcome measure, the data analyzed are the same as for Outcome Measure 1 but the summary data are presented as least squares mean (standard error).
  • Time to Onset of Near-syncopal Symptoms During Tilt Table Testing-Re-analysis With The Koch Procedure [ Time Frame: 1 hour post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The tilt table test is a 10-minute assessment performed using a manual or automated tilt table in a specialized laboratory. Subjects were moved onto the horizontal table and secured to the table with straps to prevent injury. After an equilibration period of at least 10 minutes with the subject at rest, the test began and the head of the tilt table was elevated to a 70-degree angle over a period of up to 30 seconds. The head-up tilt table test in this study was conducted 1 hour after administration of the study medication. The endpoint was a confirmed report of a near-syncopal symptom(s) (of sufficient severity that caused the patient to ask that the tilt table be returned to the horizontal position). Symptoms of near syncope were defined as dizziness, lightheadedness, feeling faint, or feeling like the subject might black out. The Koch procedure is a 3-step process to analyze results while utilizing the available information on magnitude of differences.

  • Total Score of the Orthostatic Hypotension Symptom Assessment (OHSA) [ Time Frame: Approximately 1 hour post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The OHSA measures the severity of six symptoms/symptom complexes associated with orthostatic hypotension. Subjects rated symptoms experienced during the tilt table test on an eleven-point scale from "none" to "worst possible". The OHSA total score is the sum of six subscales, ranging from 0 (no symptoms) to 60 (worst possible symptoms). The OHSA was completed after the tilt table test was over, but was answered with reference to symptoms experienced during testing. The tilt table test is a 10-minute assessment performed using a manual or automated tilt table in a specialized laboratory. Subjects were moved onto the horizontal table and secured to the table with straps to prevent injury. After an equilibration period with the subject at rest, the test began and the head of the tilt table was elevated to a 70-degree angle over a period of up to 30 seconds. Symptoms of near syncope were defined as dizziness, lightheadedness, feeling faint, or feeling like the subject might black out.
  • Scores for 6 Items of The OHSA [ Time Frame: Approximately 1 hour post-dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The OHSA measures the severity of six symptoms/symptom complexes associated with OH: dizziness, lightheadedness, and feeling faint; problems with vision; weakness; fatigue; trouble concentrating; and head/neck discomfort. Subjects rated symptoms experienced during the tilt table test on an eleven-point scale from "none" to "worst possible". Scores for each subscale range from 0 (no symptoms) to 10 (worst possible symptoms). The OHSA was completed after the tilt table test was over, but was answered with reference to symptoms experienced during testing. The tilt table test is a 10-minute assessment performed using a tilt table in a specialized laboratory. Subjects were moved onto the horizontal table and secured with straps to prevent injury. After an equilibration period with the subject at rest, the test began and the head of the tilt table was elevated to a 70-degree angle over 30 seconds. Symptoms of near syncope were defined as dizziness, lightheadedness, and feeling faint.
