This is a Phase 2 study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ABT-288 in approximately 210 adults with schizophrenia. Subjects will be randomized to one of three treatment groups (ABT-288 Dose 1, ABT-288 Dose 2 or placebo) for a 12-week Treatment Period. The purpose of this research study is to find out whether ABT-288 compared to placebo can improve cognition and what side effects ABT 288 may cause. Cognition is the way a person thinks, and it includes abilities like paying attention, focusing, remembering things, and solving problems. Acronyms listed in the Outcomes and/or Eligibility sections for this study are defined below:
- MCCB: Measurement and Treatment Research to Improve Cognition in Schizophrenia (MATRICS) Consensus Cognitive Battery
- UPSA-2: University of California at San Diego (UCSD) Performance-Based Skills Assessment-2
- CANTAB: Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery
- PANSS: Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale
- NSA-16: Negative Symptom Assessment-16
- CGI-S: Clinical Global Impression - Severity
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
Mice selectively bred for hypersusceptibility to two-stage chemical skin carcinogenesis. They are also hypersusceptible to UV radiation tumorigenesis with single high-dose, but not chronic low-dose, exposures. SENCAR (SENsitive to CARcinogenesis) mice are used in research as an animal model for tumor production.
The highest dose of a biologically active agent given during a chronic study that will not reduce longevity from effects other than carcinogenicity. (from Lewis Dictionary of Toxicology, 1st ed)
The specific failure of a normally responsive individual to make an immune response to a known antigen. It results from previous contact with the antigen by an immunologically immature individual (fetus or neonate) or by an adult exposed to extreme high-dose or low-dose antigen, or by exposure to radiation, antimetabolites, antilymphocytic serum, etc.
