Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction of mean number nocturnal voids relative to baseline [ Time Frame: 3 months of treatment compared to Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • A decrease of at least 33% in the mean number of nocturnal voids [ Time Frame: 3 months of treatment compared to Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Reduction of mean number nocturnal voids relative to baseline [ Time Frame: 4 months of treatment compared to Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Reduction mean number of night voids based on the three-days diary [ Time Frame: 3 months of treatment compared to Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in time to first void based on the three-days diary [ Time Frame: 3 months of treatment compared to Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in nocturnal urine volume and 24-hour urine volume based on the three-days diary [ Time Frame: 3 months of treatment compared to Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of hyponatraemia as measured by serum sodium level throughout the trial [ Time Frame: from end of the first week up to three months in Double-blind part ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Incidence of hyponatraemia as measured by serum sodium level throughout the trial [ Time Frame: from end of the first week up to one month in Open-label part ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Written informed consent prior to performance of any trial-related activity
  • Female sex 18 years of age or older
  • At least two voids every night in a consecutive three-day period during the screening period

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Evidence of severe daytime voiding dysfunction defined as: Urge urinary incontinence (more than one episode/day), Urgency (more than one episode/day), Frequency (more than eight daytime voids/day)
  • Recurring discomfort or pain in the bladder (chronic bladder inflammation)
  • Suspicion of bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) or a urine flow of less than 5 mL/s as confirmed by uroflowmetry performed after suspicion of BOO
  • Surgical treatment, including transurethral resection, for BOO or benign prostatic hyperplasia within the past six months
  • Urinary retention or a post void residual volume in excess of 250 mL as confirmed by bladder ultrasound performed after suspicion of urinary retention
  • Habitual or psychogenic fluid intake resulting in a urine production exceeding 40 mL/kg/24 hours)
  • Diabetes caused by damage to the pituitary gland or kidney disease
  • Any condition in which the body develops an excess of water and a decrease in sodium (salt) concentration
  • Current or a history of urologic malignancies e.g. bladder cancer
  • Genito-urinary tract pathology e.g. infection or stone in the bladder and urethra causing symptoms
  • Malfunctioning urinary bladder due to neurologic dysfunction
  • Suspicion or evidence of cardiac failure
  • Uncontrolled hypertension
  • Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus
  • Hyponatraemia: Serum sodium level must be within normal limits
  • Renal insufficiency: Serum creatinine must be within normal limits and estimated glomerular filtration rate must be more than or equal to 50 mL/min
  • Hepatic and/or biliary diseases: Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and/or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels must not be more than twice the upper limit of normal range. Total bilirubin level must not be more than 1.5 mg/dL.
  • History of obstructive sleep apnea
  • Previous desmopressin treatment for nocturia
  • Treatment with another investigational product within three months prior to screening
  • Concomitant treatment with any prohibited medication* Prohibited therapy: Loop diuretics (furosemide, torsemide, ethacrynic acid) and any other investigational drug.
  • Known alcohol or substance abuse
  • Work or lifestyle that may interfere with regular night-time sleep e.g. shift workers
  • Any other medical condition, laboratory abnormality, psychiatric condition, mental incapacity, or language barrier which, in the judgement of the Investigator, would impair participation in the trial
