Change From Baseline in the Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) Total Score at Week 8 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 8 ]
The MADRS is a clinician-rated scale for assessing depressive symptomatology that had occurred in participants during the week preceding each interview. Patients were rated on 10 items to assess feelings of sadness, lassitude, pessimism, inner tension, suicidality, reduced sleep or appetite, difficulty concentrating, and lack of interest. Each item was scored on a 7-point scale from 0 (no symptoms) to 6 (symptoms of maximum severity). The total score was the sum of the scores on the 10 items and ranged from 0 to 60. A higher score indicated more depressive symptomatology. A negative change score indicated improvement.

  • Change From Baseline in Clinical Global Impressions-Severity (CGI-S) Score at Week 8 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 8 ]
    The CGI-S is a clinician-rated scale for assessing the severity of the participant's current state of mental illness compared with a patient population with major depressive disorder. The clinician responded to the following question "Considering your total clinical experience with this population, how mentally ill is the participant at this time?" on a 7-point scale: 1=normal, not at all ill; 2=borderline ill; 3=mildly ill; 4=moderately ill; 5=markedly ill; 6=severely ill; 7=among the most extremely ill patients. The scale ranges from 1 to 7. A higher score indicates more severe mental illness. A negative change score indicates improvement.
  • Percentage of Participants With a Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) Sustained Response Rate [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 8 ]
    The MADRS Sustained response rate is defined as a MÅDRS total score ≤ 12 for at least the last 2 consecutive visits during the double-blind treatment period.
