Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Observed Total Toronto Western Spasmodic Torticollis Rating Scale (TWSTRS) Score at Week 4 of Treatment Cycle 1 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline in observed TWSTRS score at Week 4 of Treatment Cycle 1. The TWSTRS is an assessment scale used to measure the impact of cervical dystonia on patients. The score is comprised of 3 subscales: Severity, Disability, and Pain, each of which is scored independently. The total of these 3 comprises the TWSTRS total score which is scored from 0 (least symptoms) to 85 (worst symptoms). Higher scores indicate a greater degree of symptom severity. A negative change from baseline represents improvement and a positive change from baseline indicates worsening.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Physician's Global Assessment of Response to Treatment at Week 4 of Treatment Cycle 1 [ Time Frame: Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Physician's global assessment of response to treatment at Week 4 of Treatment Cycle 1. Responses were measured on a 9-point scale of +4 to -4, with higher scores denoting improvement in cervical dystonia: +4 was 'Complete abolishment of signs and symptoms (100% improvement)', 0 represented 'No change', and -4 represented 'Very marked worsening (about 100% worse or greater)'.

  • Patient's Global Assessment of Response to Treatment at Week 4 of Treatment Cycle 1 [ Time Frame: Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patient's global assessment of response to treatment at Week 4 of Treatment Cycle 1. Responses were measured on a 9-point scale of +4 to -4, with higher scores denoting improvement in cervical dystonia: +4 was 'Complete abolishment of signs and symptoms (100% improvement)', 0 represented 'No change', and -4 represented 'Very marked worsening (about 100% worse or greater)'.

  • Change From Baseline in Pain as Evaluated With the TWSTRS Pain Subscale at Week 4 of Treatment Cycle 1 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change from baseline in pain as evaluated with the TWSTRS pain subscale at Week 4 of Treatment Cycle 1. The TWSTRS pain subscale scores range from 0 to 20 (0=no pain and 20=worst pain), based on severity of neck pain (0=no pain and 10=worst pain), the duration of pain (0=none and 5=most), and the degree of disability (0=none and 5=most). A negative number change from Baseline represents a decrease in pain (improvement).

  • Duration of Treatment Effect for Treatment Responders [ Time Frame: Up to 6 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of Treatment Effect for Treatment Responders is defined as the number of days from the date of first treatment to the first visit after Week 4 of Treatment Cycle 1, at which the Total TWSTRS score reaches at least 90% of the baseline score. A treatment responder is defined as a patient who has at least a 30% reduction in Total TWSTRS score at Week 4 after the first treatment. The TWSTRS score measures the impact of cervical dystonia on patients (0=least symptoms and 85= worst symptoms).
