Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Montgomery Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Clinical Global Impression Score - Severity (CGI-S) [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in Clinical Global Impression Score - Improvement (CGI-I) [ Time Frame: From baseline to Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety: Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: approximately 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of patients exhibiting remission (MADRS </= 10) after 6 weeks of treatment [ Time Frame: approximately 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of patients exhibiting response (reduction in MADRS >/= 50% of baseline score) after 6 weeks of treatment [ Time Frame: approximately 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
