Phase IIb-III Study of BL-1020 Small Molecule for Schizophrenia (CLARITY)

This study has been terminated.
(pre-planned interim analysis of the Phase II/III CLARITY trial of BL-1020 indicate that the trial would not meet the pre-specified primary efficacy endpoint.)

Phase IIb-III Study of BL-1020 Small Molecule for Schizophrenia
A Randomized, Double-Blind, Active-Controlled,Phase 2/3 Study to Determine the Short-Term (6-Week) and Long-Term (6 Month) Cognitive and Anti-Psychotic Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of CYP-1020 Compared to Risperidone in Patients With Schizophrenia

This is a randomized, double-blind, active-controlled, 6 month study designed to evaluate the cognitive effects of treatment with CYP-1020 compared to risperidone. The primary efficacy endpoint will occur after 6 weeks of treatment; additional (secondary) efficacy endpoints will occur after 12 and 24 weeks of treatment.

Up to 450 patients will be randomized to CYP-1020 or risperidone in a 1:1 ratio. The study will utilize a flexible dose escalation scheme designed to allow patients to titrate to their maximally tolerated dose; doses of CYP-1020 may range from a minimum of 15 mg to a maximum of 35 mg, whereas doses of risperidone will range from a minimum of 1 mg to 3 mg BID (2-6 mg daily). To ensure effective blinding across all treatment groups, all patients will be treated twice daily with study drug and/or placebo, as indicated (i.e., double-dummy design).
