Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) Total Score Change From Baseline to Week 4. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    MADRS total score, sum of 10 item scores (each on a 0 (best value) to 6 (worst value)scale), assesses the severity of depressive symptoms on a continuous scale from 0 (the best) to 60 (the worst). Change from baseline was calculated as Week 4 value minus baseline value. [observed cases, Mixed Model Repeated Measurement (MMRM), Full Analysis Set (FAS)]


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) Response [ Time Frame: Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of patients with MADRS response at Week 4. MADRS response is defined as >=50% reduction in MADRS total score from baseline. MADRS total score, sum of 10 item scores (each on a 0 (best value) to 6 (worst value)scale), assesses the severity of depressive symptoms on a continuous scale from 0 (the best) to 60 (the worst). MADRS response at Week 4 is calculated using last observation carried forward (LOCF). [Full Analysis Set (FAS)]

  • Montgomery-Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) Remission [ Time Frame: Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of patients, who achieved MADRS remission at week 4. Remission is defined as a MADRS total score <= 10. MADRS total score, sum of 10 item scores (each on a 0 (best value) to 6 (worst value)scale), assesses the severity of depressive symptoms on a continuous scale from 0 (the best) to 60 (the worst). MADRS remission at Week 4 is calculated using last observation carried forward (LOCF). [Full Analysis Set (FAS)]

  • Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D) Total Score Change From Baseline to Week 4. [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    HAM-D total score, sum of 17 item scores (each on a 0 to 2 or 0 to 4 scale), assesses the severity of depressive symptoms on a continuous scale from 0 (the best) to 52 (the worst). Change from baseline to Week 4 was calculated as Week 4 value minus baseline value. [observed cases, Mixed Model Repeated Measurement (MMRM), Full Analysis Set (FAS)]

  • Clinical Global Impression - Severity (CGI-S) Score Change From Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    CGI-S assesses global illness severity, i.e. the patient's current clinical state, on a continuous scale from 1 ("Normal, not ill") to 7 ("Among the most extremely ill patients"). Change from baseline to Week 4 was calculated as Week 4 value minus baseline value. [observed cases, Mixed Model Repeated Measurement (MMRM), Full Analysis Set (FAS)]

  • Hamilton Rating Scale for Anxiety (HAM-A) Total Score Change From Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    HAM-A total score, sum of 14 item scores (each on a 0 to 4 scale), assesses the severity of anxiety symptoms on a continuous scale from 0 (the best) to 52 (the worst). Change from baseline to Week 4 was calculated as Week 4 value minus baseline value. [observed cases, Mixed Model Repeated Measurement (MMRM), Full Analysis Set (FAS)]
