The Y-MRS, or Young-Mania Rating Scale, and the MADRS, or Montgomery-sberg Depression Rating Scale, are diagnostic questionnaires used to measure the severity of manic and depressive episodes, respectively.
Patients demonstrating an inadequate response (Y-MRS Total Score greater than or equal to 16 and less than or equal to 25% improvement on the Y-MRS Total Score) to lithium or valproate were randomized to receive either adjunctive ABILIFY (15 mg/day or an increase to 30 mg/day as early as day seven based on clinical response) or adjunctive placebo.
The primary efficacy endpoint was the mean change in the Y-MRS Total Score.
