Study Suggests Treatment with Paliperidone ER Significantly Improves Symptoms of Schizoaffective Disorder
Date:11/1/2008

First Clinical Study of Paliperidone ER in this Under-Studied Condition

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Patients with schizoaffective disorder receiving paliperidone extended release tablets (paliperidone ER) for six weeks showed a significant improvement in their symptoms, according to a new study presented today at the U.S. Psychiatric & Mental Health Congress in San Diego, Calif.(1) In addition, safety findings were similar to published studies of paliperidone ER in the treatment of schizophrenia.(2)(3)

"Schizoaffective disorder is an under studied condition that despite being common among patients with serious mental illness, has no approved treatment," said Husseini Manji, M.D., Vice President, Central Nervous System and Pain, Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research and Development. "This new study suggests that paliperidone ER could be an effective option for the treatment of schizoaffective disorder. Additional studies are needed to confirm this finding."

Schizoaffective disorder is a condition, which encompasses the symptoms of both schizophrenia and a major mood disorder. Patients with schizoaffective disorder experience the psychosis characteristic of schizophrenia, such as hallucinations or delusions, as well as symptoms of mania and/or depression.(4) Schizoaffective disorder can be difficult to distinguish from schizophrenia or bipolar disorder because the symptoms are similar to both. The disorder is about one third as common as schizophrenia(5) but within those people that frequently use mental health services, schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder may account for approximately 32% and 24% of cases respectively.(6)

In the 6 week, international, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study, 316 patients with an established diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder, who were experiencing acute symptoms, received either 6mg/day or 12mg/day paliperidone ER, or a placebo. Dosages could be reduced to 3mg/day or 9mg
