Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
The study was conducted at 14 out-patient medical centers in the United States (US) from 16 September 2008 (date of first subject randomized) to 09 July 2009 (last subject’s last visit).

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
A total of 587 subjects were screened. Three hundred and two (302) subjects failed to meet study entry criteria, and thus were screen failures. The top three reasons for screen failure were: IDS-SR30 total score cut-off for randomization not met (204 pts); presence of cardiovascular abnormality (18 pts) and Laboratory Abnormalities (14 pts).

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
Subjects were asked to take 6 capsules 3 times a day for 6 weeks. Non-adherence with the study medication was high based on the population PK data. This likely contributed to the results in CX157 treatment group.
