  Purpose

PP4001 is a medication not yet approved by the US FDA. This is a phase 2, multi-center, randomized, double-blind study of 3 doses of PP4001 versus placebo in the treatment of symptoms associated with uncomplicated urinary tract infection. After the screening, patients are randomized to receive one of three doses of PP4001 or placebo. Patients are screened and randomized on the same day, and take 4 doses of study drug, one dose every 12 hours. Data about uncomplicated urinary tract infection symptoms are collected from the subjects on electronic handheld devices throughout the 48-hour study period. The primary endpoint is burning during urination.

    • Musculoskeletal

  • To assess the efficacy of PP4001 for the relief of pain as measured by the subject's self-reported score at the time of urination. [ Time Frame: Assessed at each urination from the time of randomization through 48 hours post first dose. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess the efficacy of PP4001 for reduction in urination frequency as measured by the subject's self-reported void diary. [ Time Frame: Assessed at each urination from the time of randomization through 48 hours post first dose. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate the duration of therapeutic response to PP4001 50 mg, 100 mg and 200 mg. [ Time Frame: Efficacy measures assessed in 2-hour windows after each dose. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  • Change from baseline in vital signs at the End of Study visit [ Time Frame: The End of Study Visit is 48 - 100 hours post first dose. SAEs will be followed up to 30 days after the End of Study Visit. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Vital sign measures will include systolic and diastolic blood pressure, pulse, respiratory rate, and temperature.

  • Change from baseline in ECG at the End of Study visit [ Time Frame: The End of Study Visit is 48 - 100 hours post first dose. SAEs will be followed up to 30 days beyond the End of Study Visit. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    ECG parameters to be reported in this study include heart rate, and interval parameters of RR, PR, QRS, QT, and QTc.

  • Change from baseline in laboratory evaluations at the End of Study visit [ Time Frame: The End of Study Visit is 48 - 100 hours post first dose. SAEs will be followed up to 30 days beyond the End of Study Visit. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The following laboratory assessments will be performed: venous blood and urine samples for clinical laboratory testing, including hematology, serum chemistry, urinalysis, and urine culture.

  • Frequency, severity and relationship to study medication of treatment emergent adverse events [ Time Frame: From first dose through the End of Study Visit (48 - 100 hours post first dose) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Frequency of treatment emergent AEs will be calculated for each body system, by preferred term, by treatment and by period for the number of subjects reporting the event for the safety population. The severity of the AEs and the relationship to study medication will be summarized for each body system and preferred term. Withdrawals due to AEs will be summarized for each body system and preferred term.

FNCBP are defined as postmenopausal women with their last menstrual cycle (without exogenous hormone therapy) completed more than 12 consecutive months before screening or women who are surgically sterilized (hysterectomy, oophorectomy, or tubal ligation). Females of childbearing potential also are eligible for randomization provided they are not pregnant or nursing and employ appropriate methods of contraceptives for the duration of the trial. Medically acceptable forms of contraception include abstinence, oral contraceptives, intra-uterine devices, injectable hormonals, intra-vaginal rings, or double-barrier methods (condom plus spermicide), for at least 1 month prior to treatment. Subjects in a monogamous, long term relationship with a partner who has had a vasectomy at least 3 months prior to screening are also study eligible.
  • Diagnosis of uncomplicated UTI as defined by having both of the following:
  • Presence of supporting symptoms including new onset (within 1 week) of urination frequency, painful urination, and/or urgency.
  • Positive dipstick test for leukocyte esterase.
  • Demonstration of moderate to severe burning during urination as measured by a score of at least six (6) on the 11-point rating scale for Burning During Urination during screening.
  • A negative urine pregnancy test for women of childbearing potential.
  • If subject has a chronic, clinically stable disease that requires medication, medication to treat that disease must be stable for at least 30 days prior to screening.
  • Ability to perform study procedures, including the completion of electronic diary assessments, and supply the necessary information to the study personnel as required by the protocol.
  • A signed informed consent form in which the subject agrees to participate after the study has been fully explained.

Exclusion Criteria:
