Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study was to investigate a medicine for the treatment of symptoms and complications of neurogenic detrusor overactivity (NDO) in children and adolescents.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Neurogenic Detrusor Overactivity Drug: Solifenacin succinate Phase 3

Detailed Description:

The NDO often occurs in patients with spina bifida or other spinal cord damage where the bladder muscle contracts more than normal during filling. These patients often have an inability to void, so that catheterization is required to empty the bladder.

The medicine being tested in this study is called solifenacin succinate. Solifenacin tablets are given to adults for the treatment of overactive bladder. A new liquid suspension has been developed to treat children and adolescents in this and other studies.

The efficacy and safety of the solifenacin suspension was investigated. The take-up and length of time that the solifenacin suspension stays in the body was also investigated during this study. Effectiveness was measured by urodynamics (the filling and emptying of the bladder) and the urine volumes during catheterization together with the diary responses relating to the number of incontinence episodes or incontinence free days.

Safety assessments included analysis of the blood and urine, review of the electrocardiogram (ECG), ultrasound of the kidney, simple memory and understanding tests (cognitive function) and the ability to see near and far objects (visual accommodation).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Solifenacin succinate

Participants aged 5 years to < 18 years received solifenacin orally once a day, with sequential titrated doses for 12 weeks to identify the optimal dose during the dose-titration period. The initial dose was pediatric equivalent dose (PED) 5 mg.

After completing the dose titration period participants entered the fixed-dose period during which solifenacin was taken orally once a day for 40 weeks or until the end of study visit (Week 52).

Drug: Solifenacin succinate
Oral suspension administered once a day via syringe.
Other Name: YM905




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline to Week 24 in Maximum Cystometric Capacity (MCC) [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
    During urodynamic assessments, the bladder was filled until voiding/leakage begins, or until it was stopped because either the participant experiences pain or discomfort or 135% of expected bladder capacity for age has been reached. MCC is the maximum bladder capacity reached during filling cystometry before either leakage or pain/discomfort was observed.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline to Last Possible Titration Step in Maximum Cystometric Capacity [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 9 or Week 12 ]
    During urodynamic assessments, the bladder was filled until voiding/leakage begins, or until it was stopped because either the participant experiences pain or discomfort or 135% of expected bladder capacity for age has been reached. MCC is the maximum bladder capacity reached during filling cystometry before either leakage or pain/discomfort was observed. Based on study requirements, the last possible titration step was Week 9 for participants enrolled under versions 1.0 and 1.1 and Week 12 under later versions.

  2. Change From Baseline in Bladder Compliance [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
    Bladder compliance gives an indication of the elasticity of the bladder wall and was calculated by dividing the change in volume by the change in detrusor pressure during the filling of the bladder.

  3. Change From Baseline in Bladder Volume (mL) Until First Detrusor Contraction > 15 cmH2O as a Percentage of Expected Bladder Capacity (EBC) [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
    Change from baseline in the bladder volume was calculated using urodyanamic assessments. During urodynamic assessments, the bladder is filled until voiding/leakage begins, or until it is stopped because either the subject experiences pain or discomfort or 135% of expected bladder capacity for age has been reached. If no detrusor contraction of at least 15 cmH2O occurs, the bladder volume was imputed with MCC.

  4. Change From Baseline in Bladder Volume at 30 cmH2O Detrusor Pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
    Bladder volumes at 30 cm H2O detrusor pressure was calculated using the urodynamic assessments. During urodynamic assessments, the bladder is filled until voiding/leakage begins, or until it is stopped because either the participants experiences pain or discomfort or 135% of expected bladder capacity for age has been reached.

  5. Change From Baseline in Bladder Volume at 40 cmH2O Detrusor Pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 24 ]
    Bladder volumes at 40 cm H2O detrusor pressure were calculated using urodynamic assessments. During urodynamic assessments, the bladder is filled until voiding/leakage begins, or until it is stopped because either the subject experiences pain or discomfort or 135% of expected bladder capacity for age has been reached.

  6. Change From Baseline in Number of Overactive Detrusor Contractions (> 15 cmH2O) Until End of Bladder Filling [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ]
    Change from baseline in number of overactive detrusor contractions until end of bladder filling was measured by urodynamic testing. If leakage occurred, the "Detrusor pressure at leakage" was recorded otherwise the volume of fluid instilled into the bladder was recorded.

  7. Change From Baseline in Detrusor Pressure at the End of Bladder Filling [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ]
    The bladder was filled until voiding/leakage began or until it was stopped because either the participant experiences pain or discomfort or 135% of expected bladder capacity for age has been reached. Pressure was recorded for an extra 5 minutes after leakage began or the end of bladder-filling, whichever is sooner.

  8. Change From Baseline in Average Catheterized Volume Per Catheterization [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ]
    The average catheterized volume per catheterization was calculated using all available (non-zero) catheterized volumes recorded over both of the 2 measuring days in the diary, whether or not these 2 days are concurrent.

  9. Change From Baseline in Maximum Catheterized Volume [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ]
    The maximum catheterized volume per day was calculated using all available (non-zero) catheterized volumes recorded for the 2 measuring days in the diary, whether or not these 2 days were concurrent. The maximum value was calculated separately for each measuring day and the mean of these two values was used.

  10. Change From Baseline in Average First Morning Catheterized Volume [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ]
    The average first morning catheterized volume was calculated as the average of the available first morning catheterized volumes recorded for the 2 measuring days in the diary, whether or not these 2 days are concurrent.

  11. Change From Baseline in Mean Number of Incontinence Episodes Per 24 Hours [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ]
    The mean of the number of incontinence episodes per 24h was calculated as the mean over the valid diary days in the 7-day diary.

  12. Change From Baseline in Number of Dry (Incontinence-Free) Days Per 7 Days [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ]
    The number of incontinence-free days was calculated from the 7-day micturition diary.

  13. Change From Baseline in Number of Dry (Incontinence-Free) Nights Per 7 Days [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ]
    The number of incontinence-free nights was calculated from the 7-day micturition diary.

  14. Change From Baseline in Quality of Life [QoL] (PinQ Questionnaire Score) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 24 ]
    Pediatric Incontinence Questionnaire (PinQ) is a 20-item questionnaire addressing quality of life for participants with bladder disorders. Each question was answered on a scale from 0 (no, never) to 4 (all the time). The total score ranged from 0 to 80, with higher scores indicated more impact on the quality of life.

  15. Number of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Baseline to End of Study Visit (Week 52) ]
    A treatment-emergent adverse event (TEAE) was defined as an adverse event observed after starting administration of the first dose of study medication on Day 1. All adverse events collected within 7 days after taking the last dose of study drug were counted as a TEAE.
