Ages Eligible for Study:   50 Years to 80 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Who had the treatment of BPH with alpha-1 blockers for more than 3 months
  • Who have the IPSS(International Prostatic Symptom Score) >= 15
  • Who have the maximum flow rate(Qmax) < 15 with voided volume > 150mL
  • Who have the PPBC(patient's perception of bladder condition) >= 3 (The PPBC was assessed by the use of a six point ordered categorical scale(1-6 point). The higher score means the higher bother)
  • Who had the PSA level < 4 ng/mL within 6 months (But, the patient who are revealed not to have prostate cancer by prostate biopsy can be included even if he had PSA level of 4-10 ng/mL)
  • Who underwent the transrectal ultrasound of prostate within 6 months
  • Who can understand this study and can give the informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Who had regular intake of 5-alpha reductase inhibitor or NSAID within 6 months before screening

  • Who have histories of orthostatic hypotension
  • Who have serum creatinine level more than 2.0 mg/dl
  • Who have serum ALT and/or AST level more than 1.5 times of normal upper limit
  • Who have heart failure
  • Who have histories of bacterial prostatitis within 1 year
  • Who have histories of active urinary tract infection within 1 month
  • Who have histories of the biopsy of bladder and prostate within 1 month
  • Who are unable to void
  • Who use pads because of incontinences
  • Who have hypersensitivities for alpha blockers that include quinazoline, NSAID, aspirin, sulfonamide
