Antipsychotic Iloperidone Results Show Favorable Akathisia Profile

SAN DIEGO, May 22, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- According to study results presented today at the 2007 American Psychiatric Association annual meeting, iloperidone, an investigational atypical antipsychotic, was shown to have a favorable akathisia profile. Akathisia -- a debilitating sensation of restlessness that manifests as an inability to sit still -- is a frequent side effect of antipsychotic medications. Iloperidone is being studied by Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. , a biopharmaceutical company working to advance the science of personalized medicine.

"Many people who have akathisia will say that it is the worst experience in their life, and at its worst it can even lead to suicidal behavior given its severity. It is not a surprise that akathisia can lead to medication discontinuation, leading to further symptoms and relapse," said Peter Weiden, M.D., Director of the Psychosis Program of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. "Many of the newer medications have less akathisia than older antipsychotics, but it is still a significant problem. These findings suggest that iloperidone has a very low akathisia profile, which is positive news for patients with schizophrenia, and the physician community."

Akathisia was assessed in a Phase III trial conducted by Novartis, in which 706 patients were studied over six weeks at two dose ranges of iloperidone (12-16 mg/d, 20-24 mg/d) with placebo and risperidone controls (6- 8 mg/d). When akathisia was measured on the Barnes Akathisia Scale (BAS), the iloperidone groups had fewer patients whose total akathisia score worsened (12%, p=0.04; 8%, p=0.004), compared to placebo (20%). The risperidone group (20%, p=1.00) was equal to placebo.

Three times as many patients in the risperidone group (22%), compared to placebo (7%), received anticholinergic medication to manage intolerable extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS) (such as tr
