Drug Information available for: Diazoxide

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: DCCR
75 - 450 mg DCCR
Drug: DCCR
Once daily oral administration

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess the safety of DCCR by evaluating the incidence and severity of adverse events reported [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 40 or until resolution of certain adverse events at the discretion of the Investigator and Sponsor ]
    Safety analyses will be conducted in all subjects who receive at least one dose of DCCR. Adverse events will be described by type and level of severity.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Hyperphagia Score [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 38 ]
    Hyperphagia-related behaviors will be assessed by the hyperphagia questionnaire for clinical trials (HQ-CT), an instrument designed to measure symptoms of food related preoccupations and behaviors. The HQ-CT consists of nine items with responses ranging from 0-4 (best to worst). Scores from 9 items will be summed for a possible total score range of 0−36.

  2. Body fat mass (DXA) [ Time Frame: Baseline at Week 38 ]
    Change in Body Fat Mass from Baseline to Week 38

  3. Clinical Global Impression of Improvement (CGI-I) [ Time Frame: at Week 38 ]
    CGI-I is a single statement designed to assess the Investigator's overall perception of change in the subject's condition across the course of the clinical trial. The Investigator provides a response to "Compared to the subject's condition at enrollment, the subject's condition is:" by rating the subject's behavior using a 7-point response scale (best to worst).

  4. Caregiver Global Impression of Change (Caregiver GI-C) [ Time Frame: at Week 38 ]
    The Caregiver GI-C is a single statement designed to assess the caregiver's overall perception of change in the subject across the course of the clinical trial. The caregiver provides a response to "Please choose the response below that best describes the overall change in the person's PWS since they started taking the study medication" using a 7-point graded response scale (best to worst).
