The purpose of this study is to assess tolerability of Myrbetriq compared to Detrol LA in the treatment of subjects with Overactive Bladder (OAB). This study will also assess patient preference, safety and tolerability of Myrbetriq and Detrol LA in subjects with symptoms of OAB as well as the impact of treatment on micturition frequency and incontinence episodes.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Prospective, Double-Blind, Randomized, Two-Period Crossover, Multi-Center Study to Evaluate the Tolerability and Patient Preference Between Myrbetriq and Detrol LA in Subjects With Overactive Bladder (OAB)

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Patient tolerability assessed by the Tolerability Scale of the Overactive Bladder-satisfaction (OAB-S) questionnaire

Secondary outcome:

Patient preference from a 5-point scale

Scales of the OAB-S questionnaire

Change from baseline in number of incontinence episodes per 24 hours

Change from baseline in number of micturitions per 24 hours

Safety profile assessed by adverse events (AE) and vital signs

Safety profile assessed by laboratory parameters (serum chemistry and urinalysis)

Detailed description: The study will comprise of two double-blind treatment periods with a wash-out period in between.


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.

period and for at least 30 days after final study drug administration.

- Subject agrees not to participate in another interventional study from the time of

screening until the final study visit.

- Inclusion Criteria assessed at Visit 2 (Week 0) based on the 3-day micturition diary:

- Subject continues to meet all inclusion criteria of Visit 1.

- Subject must experience at least 3 episodes of urgency (grade 3 or 4) during the

3 day micturition diary.

diabetic neuropathy or systemic or central neurological disease such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's disease).

- Subject has an indwelling catheter or practices intermittent self-catheterization.

- Subject has a chronic inflammatory condition such as interstitial cystitis, bladder

stones, previous pelvic radiation therapy, or previous or current malignant disease of the pelvic organs (i. e., within the confines of the pelvis including the bladder and rectum in both sexes and the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes in females); or of the lower gastrointestinal tract.

colitis ulcerosa, toxic megacolon, myasthenia gravis, polio or any other medical condition which makes the use of anticholinergics contraindicated.

started or has changed less than 30 days prior to Screening.

mL/min. A subject with End Stage Renal Disease or undergoing dialysis is also not a candidate for the study.

blood pressure greater than or equal 180 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure greater than or equal 110 mmHg.

(AST) or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) greater than 2x upper limit of normal (ULN), or γ-GT greater than 3x ULN and considered clinically significant.
