Rapid and significant tardive dyskinesia (TD) symptom control1,2

AUSTEDO significantly reduced AIMS total score by 3.3 points from baseline in the 36 mg/day arm (vs 1.4 with placebo) at Week 12 (P<0.001)1,2

AIMS, Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale; LS, least squares.

71% of patients taking AUSTEDO 36 mg/day saw reductions in their uncontrolled movements3,4

Psychiatric scale scores generally remained stable2-4

Rapid Response

Patients may see a response with AUSTEDO as early as 2 weeks (exploratory analysis)2

AIM-TD study design

AIM-TD was a 12-week, placebo-controlled, fixed-dose trial, in adults with TD. Patients were randomized 1:1:1:1 to 12 mg/day AUSTEDO, 24 mg/day AUSTEDO, 36 mg/day AUSTEDO, or placebo. Treatment duration included a 4-week dose escalation period and an 8-week maintenance period. The primary efficacy endpoint was change in the AIMS total score from baseline to Week 12 in the 36 mg/day arm vs placebo. Patients were 52% female and 48% male. Average age was 57 years. Mean baseline AIMS total scores in the four study arms were 9.5 (placebo), 9.6 (12 mg/day), 9.4 (24 mg/day), and 10.1 (36 mg/day).1-3

*Evaluations performed using: 1. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), a self-report questionnaire that offers an efficient way to screen patients for psychological comorbidities, showed no worsening at Week 12 in AIM-TD and ARM-TD; 2. The Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS), a measure used to identify and assess individuals at risk for suicide, was assessed at any visit during the 12-week randomized trials (AIM-TD and ARM-TD).2-4

AIMS Score Reduction in the Long-term Study3,6

Mean change in AIMS score over the long-term period. 6.6 point reduction vs baseline at Week 145 for patients taking 36 mg/day. Mean change in AIMS score over the long-term period. 6.6 point reduction vs baseline at Week 145 for patients taking 36 mg/day.

Percent of patients achieving AIMS score improvement increased with time6

  • 56% of patients achieved ≥50% reduction in total AIMS score at Week 80
  • 67% of patients achieved ≥50% reduction in total AIMS score at Week 145
AIMS Score Improvement through Week 145

A majority of patients and physicians reported symptoms as “much improved” or “very much improved” at Week 145 (CGIC and PGIC)3

Adverse events were comparable to those in the pivotal trial. 3% of patients in the long-term study did not complete the study due to lack of efficacy.3,6

The mean overall compliance rate was ~90% at 3 years3‡

Overall compliance based on pill counts.3

Long-term study design

The long-term study was a single-arm, open-label extension study of patients from the 2 placebo-controlled trials, AIM-TD and ARM-TD. Patients who opted to roll over completed a 1-week washout and then started AUSTEDO at 12 mg/day, which was titrated by 6 mg/day weekly to identify a dose that adequately controlled TD and was tolerated by the patient.7

ARM-TD study design

ARM-TD was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 2/3 trial to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of AUSTEDO in patients with TD. The primary efficacy endpoint was change in the AIMS total score from baseline to Week 12. Among the total population, 83% of patients were taking an antipsychotic drug at baseline. Patients were evenly distributed in terms of gender and the average age was 55 years. The mean AIMS total score at baseline was 9.7 in the AUSTEDO group and 9.6 in the placebo group.1,3,8
