INVEGA® Approved as Treatment for Schizophrenia in Adolescents
Date:4/11/2011

TITUSVILLE, N.J., April 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on April 6 approved INVEGA® (paliperidone) extended-release tablets for the treatment of schizophrenia in adolescents 12 to 17 years of age. The efficacy of INVEGA® to treat schizophrenia in adolescents was established in one six-week clinical study. INVEGA® is an atypical antipsychotic medication and was first approved in the U.S. in December 2006 for the treatment of schizophrenia in adults. Janssen Division of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., markets INVEGA® in the U.S.

Schizophrenia is a complex, chronic brain disorder that causes a variety of symptoms which can include hearing voices, having fixed false beliefs or delusions, disorganized thinking, and unusual behaviors. It can begin in adolescence or early adulthood, and about one percent of adults in the general population has schizophrenia. The prevalence of schizophrenia in adolescents is not known, but it is estimated to be less than in the adult population.

"Although rare, schizophrenia in adolescents is a very serious and disabling brain condition that affects every aspect of an adolescent's life and has significant consequences," said Husseini Manji, M.D., F.R.C.P.C., Global Therapeutic Area Head, Neuroscience, Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research & Development, L.L.C. "This new indication for INVEGA® provides an additional option for clinicians who treat adolescents with schizophrenia and further demonstrates our commitment to helping people with diseases of the brain."

Early diagnosis of schizophrenia and medical treatment are important in managing this life-long disease. Schizophrenia can be successfully treated over time but, like many treatable chronic diseases, there is no known cure. Adolescents with schizophrenia are usually treated with a comprehensive plan, including medication, individual therapy and specialized programs. Medicat
