Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes from baseline by treatment and between treatments for each of the components of the metabolic syndrome [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 250
Study Start Date: March 2007
Study Completion Date: April 2008
Primary Completion Date: March 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Drug: Sertindole
12 to 20 mg daily after initial up-titration, encapsulated tablets, orally, 84 days
Active Comparator: 2 Drug: Olanzapine
10 to 20 mg daily after initial up-titration, encapsulated tablets, orally, 84 days
Other Name: Zyprexa

Detailed Description:

The prevalence of metabolic syndrome is estimated to be around 20-25% of the population and is particularly high in patients with schizophrenia. Individuals with metabolic syndrome are twice as likely to die from, and three times as likely to suffer from a heart attack or stroke compared to individuals without the syndrome.

Patients on atypical antipsychotic medication should be considered a high risk group for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Weight gain is common in patients taking neuroleptics and atypical antipsychotics, and excessive body weight is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes.
