Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Change From Baseline to Week 6 in Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 ]
    The PANSS consisted of three subscales: a total of 30 symptom constructs. For each symptom construct, severity was rated on a 7-point scale, with a score of 1 (absence of symptoms) and a score of 7 (extremely severe symptoms). The PANSS total score was the sum of the rating scores for 7 positive scale items, 7 negative scale items, and 16 general psychopathology scale items from the PANSS panel. The PANSS total score ranged from 30 (best possible outcome) to 210 (worst possible outcome).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Change From Baseline to Week 6 in PANSS Positive Subscale Score. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 ]
    PANSS consisted of three subscales: a total of 30 symptom constructs. For each construct, severity was rated on a 7-point scale, with a score of 1 (absence of symptoms) and a score of 7 (extremely severe symptoms). The PANSS positive subscale score was the sum of the rating scores for the 7 positive scale items from the PANSS panel. The 7 positive symptom constructs are delusions, conceptual disorganization, hallucinatory behavior, excitement, grandiosity, suspiciousness, and hostility. The PANSS positive subscale score ranged from 7 (best possible outcome) to 49 (worst possible outcome).

  2. Mean Change From Baseline to Week 6 in PANSS Negative Subscale Score. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 ]
    The PANSS consisted of three subscales: a total of 30 symptom constructs. For each symptom construct, severity was rated on a 7-point scale, with a score of 1 (absence of symptoms) and a score of 7 (extremely severe symptoms). The PANSS negative subscale score was the sum of the rating scores for the 7 negative scale items from the PANSS panel. The 7 negative symptom constructs: blunted affect, emotional withdrawal, poor rapport, passive/apathetic social withdrawal, difficulty in abstract thinking, lack of spontaneity and flow of conversation, stereotyped thinking. The PANSS negative subscale score ranged from 7 (best possible outcome) to 49 (worst possible outcome).

  3. Mean Change From Baseline to Week 6 in Clinical Global Impression-Severity of Illness (CGI-S) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 ]
    Severity of illness for each participant was rated using the CGI-S, which was the secondary efficacy endpoint. To perform this assessment, the study physician answered the following question: "Considering your total clinical experience with this particular population, how mentally ill is the participant at this time?" Response choices included: 0 = not assessed; 1 = normal, not at all ill; 2 = borderline mentally ill; 3 = mildly ill; 4 = moderately ill; 5 = markedly ill; 6 = severely ill; and 7 = among the most extremely ill participants.

  4. Mean Clinical Global Impression-Improvement (CGI-I) Scale Score at Week 6. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 ]
    The efficacy of trial medication was rated for each participant using the CGI-I. The study physician would rate the participant's total improvement whether or not it is due entirely to drug treatment. All responses were compared to the participant's condition at Baseline prior to the first dose of double-blind study medication. Response choices included: 0 = not assessed, 1 = very much improved, 2 = much improved, 3 = minimally improved, 4 = no change, 5 = minimally worse, 6 = much worse, and 7 = very much worse.
