Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1, open-label, multicenter, single and multiple ascending lurasidone dose study in subjects from 6 to 17 years old with schizophrenia spectrum, bipolar spectrum, autistic spectrum disorder, or other psychiatric disorders.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Schizophrenia Autism Drug: Lurasidone Phase 1

Detailed Description:
To characterize lurasidone PK profile following single and multiple oral doses of 20, 40,80, 120 or 160 mg/day lurasidone in the targeted pediatric/adolescent population (6-17 years old)with schizophrenia spectrum, bipolar spectrum, autistic spectrum disorder or other psychiatric disorders. Data from this study will be used to recommend pediatric doses that result in comparable exposures to those observed in currently approved adult doses of Latuda® (40, 80, 120 and 160 mg/day) in subsequent efficacy and safety studies.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects must provide written informed consent, if emancipated, written assent and be willing to participate in the study. Written informed consent from parent(s) or legal guardian(s) with sufficient intellectual capacity to understand the study and support subjects' adherence to the study procedures must be obtained for subjects who are not emancipated.
  • Male or female subjects 6 to 17 years of age, inclusive. Subject must be 17 years or less at the follow-up visit.
  • Subject is judged by the investigator to be clinically stable (ie, no psychiatric hospitalization within the past 12 weeks; no imminent risk of suicide or injury to self, others or property; no recent addition, or change in dosage, of psychotropic medication intended for the treatment of the primary psychiatric condition in the past 4 weeks) but symptomatic (ie, some active symptoms of the primary psychiatric condition are present for which an atypical antipsychotic agent is judged to be an acceptable treatment option).
  • Subjects with the following diagnoses will be eligible for participation: primary schizophrenia spectrum diagnosis (schizophrenia, schizoaffective, schizophreniform or psychotic disorder Not Otherwise Specified (NOS), bipolar spectrum disorder (bipolar I, II or bipolar NOS), pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) including autistic spectrum disorder (autistic disorder, Asperger's syndrome, or Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS), attention-deficit hyperactivity (ADHD) with aggressive behavior [meeting co-morbid diagnostic criteria for Conduct Disorder/Disruptive Behavior Disorders Not Otherwise Specified (CD/DBD NOS), or Tourette's syndrome, via clinical interview (using MINI-Kid plus diagnostic interview and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition Text Revision (DSM-IV-TR) as a reference). Autistic disorder should also be confirmed by the Autism Diagnostic Interview, Revised (ADI-R).
  • Within 5th to 95th percentile for gender specific weight-for-age and height-for-age Growth Charts from National Center for Health Statistics.
  • No clinically relevant abnormal laboratory values.
  • No clinically relevant abnormal vital sign values/findings.
  • Females who participate in this study:
  • are unable to become pregnant (eg, premenarchal, surgically sterile etc) -OR-
  • are willing to remain sexually abstinent (not engage in sexual intercourse) from Day 1 to 30 days after discharge on Day 11; -OR-
  • are sexually active and willing to use an effective method of birth control (eg, male using condom and female using condom, diaphragm, contraceptive sponge, spermicide, contraceptive pill, or intrauterine device) from Day -1 to 30 days after discharge on Day 11.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Clinically significant neurological, metabolic (including type 1 diabetes), hepatic, renal, hematological, pulmonary, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, carcinoma, and/or urological disorder such as unstable angina, congestive heart failure (uncontrolled), or central nervous system (CNS) infection that would pose a risk to the subjects if they were to participate in the study or that might confound the results of the study.
  • Note: Active medical conditions that are minor or well-controlled are not exclusionary if they do not affect risk to the subject or the study results. In cases in which the impact of the condition upon risk to the subject or study results is unclear, the Medical Monitor should be consulted. Any subject with a known cardiovascular disease or condition (even if under control) must be discussed with the Medical Monitor before being enrolled to the study.
  • Evidence of any chronic organic disease of the CNS such as tumors, inflammation, active seizure disorder, vascular disorder, Parkinson's disease, or other forms of dementia, myasthenia gravis, or other degenerative processes. In addition, subjects must not have a history of mental retardation or persistent neurological symptoms attributable to serious head injury. Past history of febrile seizure, drug-induced seizure, or alcohol withdrawal seizure is not exclusionary.
  • Known presence or history of hepatic insufficiency or subject's estimated creatinine clearance is < 80 mL/min/1.73 m2 by the following Bedside Schwartz equation for use with creatinine methods with calibration traceable to isotope dilution mass spectrometry (IDMS): Creatinine clearance (mL/min/1.73 m2) = (0.41 height) / serum creatinine concentration, where height in cm and serum creatinine in mg/dL.
  • Clinically significant finding(s) on physical examination determined by the investigator to pose a health concern to the subject while on study.
  • A history or presence of abnormal ECG, which in the investigator's opinion is clinically significant. Screening ECGs will be centrally over-read, and eligibility will be determined based on the over-read.
  • Known history or presence of clinically significant intolerance to any antipsychotic medications including but not limited to angioedema, serotonin or neuroleptic malignant syndromes, moderate to severe dystonia, or moderate to severe tardive dyskinesia.
  • Clinically significant alcohol abuse/dependence or drug abuse/dependence based on MINI-Kid criteria within the last 6 months prior to screening.

  • Positive breath alcohol test at screening or on Day -1.
  • Positive test results at screening or on Day -1 for:
  • Urine drugs of abuse (amphetamines, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine, opiates, phencyclidine, cannabinoids, and methadone). However, a positive test for amphetamines, barbiturates, opiates, benzodiazepines or methadone may not result in exclusion of subjects if the investigator determines that the positive test is as a result of prescription medicine(s).
  • Pregnancy test (only in female subjects ≥ 8 years old).
  • Lifetime history of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive or acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), or history of Hepatitis B or C, or a positive test for Hepatitis B or C at screening (for subjects without a history).
