Effects Of GW679769 On Bladder Nerve Function And Symptoms Of Overactive Bladder In Spinal Cord Injury Patients

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00332319

Brief Summary:
This is a two-part study in which Part A will assess the effects of GW679769 after 1 dose on the function of the nerves that supply the bladder. The technique for measuring the nerves function is called Neurometry. Part B will assess the effect of repeat doses of GW679769 on the bladder nerve function. Part B will also assess the effects of the drug on overactive bladder symptoms using a three-day patient diary.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Incontinence, Urinary and Urinary Bladder, Overactive Overactive Bladder Drug: GW679769 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the effects of GW679769 on Current Perception Threshold (CPT) following a single 150 mg dose (Part A) and to evaluate the effect of CPT and symptoms of overactive bladder following 28 days of repeat dosing with 120 mg GW679769 administered once daily (Part B) in patients with neurogenic bladder due to incomplete spinal cord injury

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in bladder nerve activity assessed by neurometry before and after a single dose of GW679769 and placebo (part A) and after 28 days of drug or placebo treatment (part B).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Improvement of OAB symptoms (incontinence, frequency of urination, reduction in urgency, decrease in night-time urination episodes).
