Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The Global Assessment Question [ Time Frame: At 4, 8, 12 weeks after start of study drug administration and LOCF ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The IIEF EF domain score [ Time Frame: At 4, 8, 12 weeks after start of study drug administration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • IIEF domain scores other than the EF domain score[intercourse satisfaction (Q6 to Q8), overall satisfaction (Q13, Q14), orgasmic function (Q9, Q10), sexual desire (Q11, Q12)] [ Time Frame: At 4, 8, 12 weeks after start of study drug administration and LOCF ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Scores of Questions 1 to 15 on the IIEF Questionnaire [ Time Frame: At 4, 8, 12 weeks after start of study drug administration and LOCF ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Patient's diary response concerning hardness of erection, maintenance of erection, satisfaction with overall hardness of erection, ability of insertion, overall satisfaction with sexual experience and ejaculation [ Time Frame: At 4, 8, 12 weeks after start of study drug administration and LOCF ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
