Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Who Responded to Treatment [ Time Frame: Baseline and end of treatment (Week 14) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Detrusor leak point pressure (LPP) recorded in cm H2O was obtained using a standard urodynamic technique, a cystometrogram. Urodynamic testing was performed at least two times during the scheduled visit to determine consistent results. A responder is defined as a patient with two LPP measurements <40 cm H2O based on two confirmatory values at the same visit, or a patient with only 1 LPP measurement and the measurement is <40 cm H2O. Patients with two LPP measurements ≥40 cm H2O or with two LPP measurements where one is ≥40 cm H2O and the other is <40 cm H2O were considered non-responders.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Detrusor Leak Point Pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline and end of treatment (Week 14) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Detrusor leak point pressure (LPP) was measured using a standard urodynamic technique, a cystometrogram. Urodynamic testing was performed at least two times during the scheduled visit to determine consistent results. The actual value for the detrusor leak point pressure determined at each visit was the mean of all measurements obtained at that visit.

  • Percentage of Participants With a Hydroureter Response [ Time Frame: Baseline and end of treatment (Week 14) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Hydroureter response was defined as improvement or stabilization based upon a change in the presence or absence of hydroureter at the end of treatment compared to baseline. Ultrasound examination of each ureter was conducted to establish the presence or absence of hydroureter.

  • Percentage of Participants With a Hydronephrosis Response [ Time Frame: Baseline and end of treatment (Week 14) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Hydronephrosis response was defined as improvement or stabilization based upon the renal ultrasound grading at the end of treatment compared to baseline. Patients were considered as having improvement or stabilization of their hydronephrosis if their grade at the end of treatment visit was the same or lower than the grade at baseline. The severity of the hydronephrosis was graded on a scale from 0 (no hydronephrosis, central renal complex intact) to 4 (dilation of pelvis and calices, calices may appear convex; thin renal parenchyma).

  • Change From Baseline in Urine Volume [ Time Frame: Baseline and end of treatment (Week 14) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    For all patients who participated in a catheterization treatment regimen, a diary was kept of the urine volumes that were collected during catheterization. This diary was completed for the 48 hour period prior to each clinic visit.

  • Change From Baseline in Number of Times Patient Wet at Catheterization [ Time Frame: Baseline and end of treatment (Week 14) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    For all patients who participated in a catheterization treatment regimen, the patient or the patient's caregiver recorded in the catheterization diary whether the patient was dry or wet at the time of catheterization. This diary was completed for the 48 hour period prior to each clinic visit.

  • Safety Assessed by Physical Examination, Vital Signs, Orthostatic Testing, ECG, Laboratory Values and Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: From the first dose of study medication until 28-days after the end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The investigator assessed all AEs for relationship to study drug. A severe AE is an event that was incapacitating or caused inability to work or perform usual activity. An AE is serious if it results in: Death; is life-threatening; persistent or significant disability; requires or prolongs hospitalization; a congenital anomaly / birth defect; requires medical intervention to prevent one of the above. Significant was defined according to ICH E3 Guidelines: adverse events marked as hematological or other laboratory abnormalities (but not serious) or leading to intervention.
