Change From Randomization (Week 0) Associated With GW856553 Versus Placebo at Week 6 in the Bech (6-item HAMD-17 [Hamilton Depression Rating Scale]) Score. [ Time Frame: At Week 6 ]
HAMD-17 has 17 questions. The HAMD-17 Total Score was calculated by summing the individual response scores over the 17 individual components of the interview. The highest possible score was 52, which represented the most severe measure of depression; the lowest possible score was 0, which represented an absence of depression. There were 9 five point questions and 8 three point questions. The responses to the individual questions had values of 0-2 (three points response) or 0-4 (five points response). The BECH scale was extracted from the HAMD-17 and comprises of 6 items out of which 5 are 5 point questions and 1 is 3 point question. The Bech Total Score was calculated by summing the individual response scores and ranged from 0 to 22, with higher scores indicating more severe depression. Week 0 values were considered as Baseline.The change from randomization was analysed using suitable Bayesian mixed-effects model repeated measures (BMMRM) assuming missing at random (MAR).

Complete list of historical versions of study NCT00976560 on ClinicalTrials.gov Archive Site
  • Number of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 6 Weeks ]
    An Adverse Event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a patient or clinical investigation participant, temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product. A Serious Adverse Event (SAE) is any untoward medical occurrence that, at any dose results in death, is life threatening, requires hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, results in disability/incapacity, or is a congenital anomaly/birth defect. The AEs row include participants with SAEs.
  • Number of Participants With Suicidality as Assessed by the Columbia Suicidality Severity Rating Scale Score [ Time Frame: Upto Week 6 ]
    Suicidility was defined as participants with major depressive disorder who experienced worsening of their depression and/or the emergence of suicidal ideation and behavior. Number of partcipants who experienced suicidality were reported. On the Suicidal Ideation scale of the Columbia Suicide-Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) participants were scored as "non-suicidal" (00), "wish to be dead" (01), "non-specific active suicidal thoughts" (02), "active suicidal ideation with associated thoughts of methods without intent" (03), "active suicidal ideation with some intent to act on suicidal thoughts without clear plan" (04) and "active suicidal ideation with plan and intent" (05), based on the most severe score (5 being the most severe).Suicidal ideation of type 4 or 5 in the C-SSRS was categorized as suicidility here.
  • Number of Participants With Abnormal Haematology and Clinical Chemistry Values [ Time Frame: Upto Week 6 ]
    Samples for haematology and clinical chemistry were collected on Weeks 1, 5 and 6. The analyzed haematological parameters were platelet count, red blood cells count, white blood cells count, reticulocyte count, hemoglobin and hematocrit. The analyzed clinical chemistry parameters were urea, creatinine, glucose (fasting), sodium, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), potassium, chloride, calcium, triglycerides, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT), alkaline phosphatase, creatine kinase (CK), total and direct bilirubin, albumin, total protein and total cholesterol. Number of participants with any abnormal haematological or clinical chemistry parametrs are summarized here.
  • Number of Participants With Abnormal Vital Signs (Blood Pressure, Heart Rate) [ Time Frame: Up to follow-up Visit (Day 53) ]
    Vital signs including systolic and diastolic blood pressure and heart rate were taken from day 1 upto follow-up visit. Number of participants with abnormal systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and heart rate values were summarized.
  • Number of Participants With Abnormal Electrocardiogram (ECG) Findings [ Time Frame: Up to follow-up Visit (Day 53) ]
    ECG was obtained at Week 2 and Week 6. ECG was recorded using an ECG machine that automatically calculates the heart rate and measures PR, QRS, QT, and Corrected QT (QTc) intervals (Bazett's correction was applied to QTc measurements). Number of participants with abnormal ECG readings are summarized.
  • Changes From Randomization (Week 0)in IL-6 and TNF-alpha Associated With GW856553 Versus Placebo at Week 1 and Week 6 in the Morning Plasma Levels [ Time Frame: Upto Week 6 ]
    Interlukin-6 (IL-6) and Tumor Necrosis Factor-Alpha (TNF-alpha) from the participants with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) were evaluated and analyzed using suitable mixed-effects model repeated measures (MMRM). Exploratory analysis on plasma levels of IL-6 and TNF-alpha were performed. Week 0 values were considered as Baseline.The change from Baseline was calculated by subtracting the baseline values from the individual post-randomisation values.
  • Change From Randomisation Bech Total Score: Bech Score [ Time Frame: Up to Follow-up visit (Day 53) ]
    HAMD-17 has 17 questions. The BECH scale was extracted from the HAMD-17 and comprises of 6 items out of which 5 are 5 point questions and 1 is 3 point question. The Bech scale was extracted from the HAMD-17 and comprised of 6 items out of which 5 were 5 point questions and 1 was 3 point question. The Bech Total Score was calculated by summing the individual response scores and ranged from 0 to 22, with higher scores indicating more severe depression. Due to the small number of items, missing data was not imputed for the Bech Total Score. If any of the 6 items were missing, the total score was not calculated at that visit. The change from randomization was analysed using suitable Bayesian Mixed-Effects Models for Repeated Measures (BMMRM) assuming missing at random MAR.
  • Mean HAMD-17 Total Score [ Time Frame: Up to Follow-up visit (Day 53) ]
    HAMD-17 is Hamilton Depression Rating Scale which has 17 questions. The HAMD-17 Total Score was calculated by summing the individual response scores over the 17 individual components of the interview. The highest possible score was 52, which represented the most severe measure of depression; the lowest possible score was 0, which represented an absence of depression. If not more than 1 response was missing, the total score was caculated as Observed Total Score * [1 + (Sum of the Maximum Score of the missing values/Sum of the Maximum Score of the non -missing values)]. There were 9 five point questions and 8 three point questions. The responses to the individual questions can have values of 0-2 (three points response) or 0-4 (five points response).
  • Mean Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology Clinician (IDS-C) Total Score [ Time Frame: Up to Follow-up visit (Day 53) ]
    The 30 item IDS is available in two versions IDS-C and Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology self-rated (IDS-SR). To calculate the total score of IDS, 28 out of the 30 items were scored. Either weight loss or weight gain, appetite loss or appetite gain is scored because only one member of each pair is applicable to any given respondent. The standard total score is obtained by summing the ratings of 28 of the 30 items. Each of the 28 items is scored on a 0 to 3 scale (0 - the absence of pathology; 3 - severe pathology). The total scores range from 0 to 84. If more than one response was missing then the score was calculated using the formula Observed Total Score*[1+(Sum of the Maximum Score of the missing values/Sum of the Maximum Score of the non -missing values)].
  • Mean IDS-SR Total Score [ Time Frame: Up to Week 6 ]
    The 30 item IDS is available in two versions IDS-SR and IDS-C. To calculate the total score of IDS, 28 out of the 30 items were scored. Either weight loss or weight gain, appetite loss or appetite gain is scored because only one member of each pair is applicable to any given respondent. The standard total score is obtained by summing the ratings of 28 of the 30 items. Each of the 28 items is scored on a 0 to 3 scale (0 - the absence of pathology; 3 - severe pathology). The total scores range from 0 to 84. If more than one response was missing then the score was calculated using the formula Observed Total Score*[1+(Sum of the Maximum Score of the missing values/Sum of the Maximum Score of the non -missing values)].
  • Mean Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology Self Report-16 Item (QIDS-SR16) Total Score Derived From the IDS-SR (Only at Weeks 0, 2, 4 and 6) [ Time Frame: Weeks 0, 2, 4 and 6 ]
    QIDS-SR assesses symptoms severity of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV) diagnostic criterion for major depressive disorder. It contains 16 separate items (corresponding to 16 items of the much longer IDS-SR), defining 9 DSM-IV symptom criterion domains. A total score was obtained by summing scores on each domain. The QIDS-SR total score was calculated by summing over the domain scores. The highest possible score was 27, which represented the most severe measure of depression; the lowest possible score was 0, which represented an absence of depression. Due to the small number of items, missing data was not imputed for the QIDS-SR total score.
  • Percentage of IDS-C Responders (Participants With a Reduction in Total Score of ≥50% From Randomization at Week 6/Study Exit). [ Time Frame: Week 6 ]
    The 30 item IDS is available in two versions IDS-C and IDS-SR. To calculate the total score of IDS, 28 out of the 30 items were scored. Either item 11 or 12 (and 13 or 14) were scored. If 11 and 12 (or 13 and 14) both are scored then the item with the highest score was considered. The total score of the 28 items ranged between 0-84. A responder is a participant who has a ≥50% reduction from randomisation in the total score for IDS-C. The total score was calculated for each participant at each timepoint and the percentage change from randomisation was then calculated as ([Total score at post randomisation visit - Total score at randomisation visit]/ Total score at randomisation visit) * 100%. Responders were those with values of ≤ -50%. The change from randomization was analysed using suitable Bayesian mixed-effects model repeated measures (BMMRM) assuming missing at random (MAR).

Clinical Study to Test a New Drug to Treat Major Depression
A Six Week Randomized, Double-blind, Multi-center, Placebo-controlled, Exploratory, Adaptive Design Study to Explore the Antidepressant Properties of the p38 MAP Kinase Inhibitor GW856553 Compared to Placebo in Adult Subjects With Major Depressive Disorder

In this randomized, double-blind, multi-centre, placebo controlled, exploratory, adaptive design study, the antidepressant and plasma cytokine lowering effects of the GW856553 will be investigated in adult subjects diagnosed with MDD. Subjects will receive oral doses of GW856553 or placebo for six weeks. Safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, defined as biomarkers in blood and clinical symptoms, will be assessed.

The primary endpoint is the change from baseline associated with GW856553 versus placebo at Week 6 in the Bech (6-item HAMD-17) score. Interim analyses of the primary endpoint will be performed throughout the study to potentially adapt the study design by changing the randomization ratio and/ or reducing the total number of subjects to be randomized into the study. Exploratory analyses will be performed by associating changes in cytokine levels and selected clinical symptoms; PK/PD modelling will also be used to identify the most sensitive clinical and biological markers.
