New Drug Application Submitted for Potential New Treatment for Schizophrenia.
PR Newswire; 11/30/2005
TITUSVILLE, N.J., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research & Development, LLC announced that it has submitted a New Drug Application to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Paliperidone Extended-Release (ER) Tablets, an investigational extended- release, once daily, oral medication for the treatment of schizophrenia.
Paliperidone ER uses the patented OROS technology, which releases drug into the bloodstream steadily over a 24-hour period. Paliperidone ER will be marketed in the United States by Janssen, L.P., a wholly owned subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. The trade name for the marketed product has not yet been determined.
The paliperidone ER filing is based on an extensive global clinical development program that involved more than 1,600 patients in 23 countries. Regulatory submissions are expected to follow for paliperidone ER in other countries.
Schizophrenia affects more than 2 million Americans and is characterized by symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, social withdrawal and a diminished capacity for organized thought.

The Warning Signs Of An Impending Bipolar Disorder Manic Episode
Bipolar disorder - as the name implies - involves two distinct set of symptoms. One set throws the individual down into the depths of a massive depression. The other places the individual who suffers with bipolar disorder at the top of a peak manic episode.
Most everyone can eventually recognize the warning signs of an impending depressive episode related to bipolar disorder. More likely than not, individuals with bipolar disorder try very hard to avoid it.
However, for many individuals with bipolar disorder, it's more difficult to recognize the signs of an impending manic episode. After all, a manic episode of bipolar disorder can be mistaken in some cases - especially in the very early formation -- for the lifting of the corresponding mood swing of the depression.
