  Purpose

This registration study in China is a multi-centre, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy and safety of lamotrigine in the prevention of recurrence/relapse of mood episodes in subjects with bipolar I disorder. Subjects are bipolar I disorder patients with recent/current manic, hypomanic, mixed or depressive episode. The study will include an open-label phase and a randomized phase. During the open-label phase, subjects will have lamotrigine monotherapy or combination therapy escalation. The target dose of lamotrigine is 200 mg/day monotherapy. The duration of treatment in the open-label phase will last 6-16 weeks, until subjects reach a stable dose of lamotrigine. Beginning at week 7 of the open-label phase, subjects who have reached a stable dose of lamotrigine and met response criteria, defined as maintaining a CGI-S score ≤ 3 for at least 4 continuous weeks and maintaining lamotrigine 200 mg/day monotherapy for at least 1 week, will be eligible to enroll in the double-blind phase of the study. Subjects who have not met response criteria after 16 weeks of participation in the open-label phase will be withdrawn from the study. Subjects will have lamotrigine 200 mg/day monotherapy for at least 1 week prior to randomization.

Subjects who have met randomization requirements will be randomized 1:1 to lamotrigine 200 mg/day or placebo for 36 weeks double-blind treatment. After randomization, subjects will be assessed at weekly intervals for the first month, biweekly intervals for the second month, and then at monthly intervals for up to 36 weeks of double-blind treatment. The primary endpoint will be TIME, defined as the time to intervention (addition of pharmacotherapy or ECT) for any mood episode (relapse or recurrence of a depressive, manic, hypomanic or mixed episode) after randomization. The secondary endpoints will include time to intervention for manic, hypomanic or mixed episode (TIMan) and time to intervention for depressive episode (TIDep).The scores on the HAMD, YMRS, CGI-I, CGI-S and GAS will be used as indicators for both intensity and duration of mood symptoms during this phase. Subjects who withdraw early from the study prior to week 36 or reach TIME will have a follow-up visit 14 days after the last dose of investigational drug.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects must be able to effectively communicate with study personnel, have the ability to comprehend the key components of the Inform Consent Form and must provide written informed consent to participate in the study prior to any study-specific assessments or procedures.
  • An in-patient or out-patient (male or female) and aged ≥18 years old.
  • Disease to be studied: Has a diagnosis of the following disease as defined by DSM-IV criteria currently or within 60 days:

    a)Bipolar I Disorder, most recent episode depressed (296.5x); b)Bipolar I Disorder, most recent episode hypomanic (296.40); c)Bipolar I Disorder, most recent episode manic (296.4x); d)Bipolar I Disorder, most recent episode mixed (296.6x)

  • The subject who has a diagnose of "bipolar I disorder, most recent episode depressed (296.5x)" must meet the following criteria:

Has at least one well documented manic, hypomanic or mixed episode, as defined by DSM-IV criteria, within 3 years of enrolment ; The duration of recent/current depressive episode is at least 2 weeks but not longer than 12 months prior to enrolment; For subject with currently experiencing a depressive episode, he/she must have a minimum total score of 18 on the HAMD-17 at s screening.

- The subject who has a diagnosis of "bipolar I disorder, most recent episode hypomanic (296.40)" or "bipolar I disorder, most recent episode manic (296.4x)" or "bipolar I disorder, most recent episode mixed (296.6x)" must meet the following criteria: Has had at least one well documented additional manic, hypomanic or mixed episode and one depressed episode, as defined by DSM-IV criteria, within 3 years of enrolment; Has a duration of the index manic episode of at least 1 week (unless hospitalised) or hypomanic episode of at least 4 days or mixed episode of at least 1 week.
