The Efficacy pathway (Phase 2E) offered randomization to clozapine or an SGA (olanzapine, quetiapine, or risperidone) not previously received by the patient in the study. Patients who discontinued their previous treatment because of inadequate efficacy were encouraged but not required to enter Phase 2E. Phase 3 was for persons who discontinued the treatment assigned in Phase 2. Research and clinical personnel examined reasons for failure of the treatments assigned in Phases 1 and 2. Based upon this review, and upon partially blinded information regarding previous treatments, the clinician and patient selected an open-label treatment for Phase 3.
At the second phase, subjects chose either a tolerability pathway that randomized them to ziprasidone versus one of the three original study atypicals, or an efficacy pathway that randomized them to open-label clozapine versus one of the three original atypicals. Before ziprasidone was added to the study, the tolerability arm simply contained the other three atypicals. Subjects could subsequently choose to discontinue the second treatment phase and enter an unrandomized open-label phase (Phase 3).
This is a substantial benefit compared to many conventional outcomes which were missing, biased, or hard to interpret when a subject discontinued. Most types of outcome data in CATIE were collected in the form of repeated measurements over time, such as the PANSS, quality of life, side effect scales, cost-effectiveness, and laboratory assessments. As a subject discontinued the phase or the study, outcome data left missing for this person was not missing completely at random. For example, a subject who discontinued for lack of efficacy would likely have demonstrated high PANSS scores had they continued.
