Detailed Description:

This is a 12-week, multi-center, open-label extension study designed to evaluate the longer-term safety, tolerability and effectiveness of lurasidone for the treatment of subjects with schizophrenia who have participated in Study D1050238, a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized withdrawal study of lurasidone for the maintenance treatment of subjects with schizophrenia. Subjects who have completed the 28-week double-blind phase or who have experienced a protocol-defined relapse event during the double-blind phase of study D1050238 will have the option to participate in this study. In addition, if/when the study is discontinued by the sponsor, all subjects participating in the open-label phase and the double-blind phase of study D1050238 will have the option to participate in this extension study

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has agreed to participate by providing written informed consent.
  • Subject will be eligible to participate if one of the following criteria is met:

  • Subject has experienced a protocol-defined relapse event during the double- blind phase in study D1050238
  • Subject is participating in the open-label or double-blind phase of study D1050238 if/when study D1050238 is terminated by the sponsor.
  • Subject has completed all required assessments on the final study visit (Study Visit Number 42) in study D1050238.
  • Subject is judged by the Investigator to be suitable for participation in a 12-week clinical trial involving open-label lurasidone treatment and is able to comply with the protocol in the opinion of the Investigator.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject is considered by the investigator to be at imminent risk of suicide or injury to self, others, or property.
  • Subject answers "yes" to "Suicidal Ideation" item 4 (active suicidal ideation with some intent to act, without specific plan) or item 5 (active suicidal ideation with specific plan and intent) on the C-SSRS at the extension baseline visit (Study Visit Number 42 in study D1050238). Subjects who answer "yes" to this question must be referred by the Investigator for appropriate follow-up evaluation and treatment.
  • Subject tests positive for drugs of abuse or is suspected of current alcohol abuse at the extension baseline visit (Study Visit Number 42 in study D1050238).
