Event identification

Event Identification

  • To identify potentially suicide-related adverse events (PSRAEs), sponsors were asked to search the trial preferred terms, verbatim terms and comments for suicide-related text strings (e.g. “accident-,” “attempt,” “burn,” “cut,” “gun”)

  • Search strictly limited to the double-blind period

  • Subjects with events pre-dating baseline were not excluded. Events were counted if they recurred during the trial.

Event adjudication

Event Adjudication

  • Adjudication of PSRAEs as per the Columbia Classification Algorithm of Suicide Assessment (C-CASA)

    • Due to the large number of subjects in the adult suicidality analysis, adjudications were performed by the sponsors and were not overseen by the FDA

  • “False positive” events identified by the text string search (e.g. gas/epigastric pain) were excluded

C casa event classification

C-CASA Event Classification

The numbering above represents a ranking of event severity, and only the most severe event per patient was submitted in the datasets
