INVEGA(R) Approved as the First and Only Treatment for Schizoaffective Disorder
Date:7/31/2009

TITUSVILLE, N.J., July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today approved the first and only antipsychotic for the acute treatment of schizoaffective disorder. INVEGA(R) (paliperidone) extended-release tablets were approved for the acute treatment of schizoaffective disorder either as monotherapy or adjunctive therapy to mood stabilizers and/or antidepressants.

"The approval of INVEGA(R) is exciting as it is the only antipsychotic treatment proven in double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trials to be efficacious with a demonstrated tolerable safety profile treating both the psychotic and affective symptoms present in this understudied population."

The approval is based on two international, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies of patients with an established diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder, who were experiencing acute symptoms. In the first six-week study, patients received flexible doses of INVEGA(R) (3-12 mg once daily). In the other study, patients were assigned to one of two dose levels of INVEGA(R): 6 mg with the option to reduce to 3 mg, or 12 mg with the opt
