|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Autistic Disorder||Drug: Aripiprazole Oral Solution Drug: Placebo Oral Solution||Phase 3|
Screening Phase: up to 42 days (consisting of a Screening Visit (V1), a washout period and Interim Screening Visit (V1a) when applicable, and a Baseline Visit (V2). The Screening Phase will serve multiple purposes: to allow for appropriate washout of prohibited medications; to allow for review of screening data; to establish a pre-treatment baseline of key outcome measures.
Treatment Phase: The duration of the treatment is 8 weeks. The purpose of the treatment phase is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, tolerability and steady-state plasma trough concentration of aripiprazole in the treatment of serious behavioral problems in children and adolescents with a diagnosis of Autistic Disorder..
Safety Follow-up Phase: All subjects will be followed up for safety (adverse events) at Day 16 after the last medication via telephone.

- Changes from Baseline to Week 8 (or endpoint) in the ABC-I score [ Time Frame: Baseline and 8 weeks (or endpoint) ]The objective of the primary analysis is to compare the efficacy of aripiprazole flexible-dosed (2 ~ 15 mg/day) with placebo in reducing serious behavioral problems, specifically irritability, agitation and self-injurious behavior, in children and adolescents with a diagnosis of Autistic Disorder. The efficacy is assessed by assessed by change from baseline to endpoint on the Irritability Subscale of the ABC (ABC-I).
- Clinician-rated CGI-I score at Week 8 (or endpoint) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 8 weeks (or endpoint) ]The efficacy is assessed by the clinician-rated CGI-I score at Week 8
- Change in ABC subscale scores from Baseline to Week 8 (or endpoint) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 8 weeks (or endpoint) ]The efficacy is assessed by changes from Baseline to Week 8 (or endpoint) in Social Withdrawal, Hyperactivity, Stereotypy and Inappropriate Speech Subscale scores of the ABC
- Response Rate at Week 8 (or endpoint) (or endpoint) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 8 weeks (or endpoint) ]The response is defined as a reduction ≥25% in ABC-I score compared to the baseline, and a CGI-I score of much improved or very much improved) at Week 8 (or endpoint).The efficacy is assessed by response rate at Week 8 (or endpoint).
