  Purpose

To investigate the therapeutic effect and safety of celecoxib adding on doxazosin and the potential predictive value of the absence of prostate cancer in the treatment of patients with LUTS/BPH and an elevated serum PSA level.

Patients who meet all eligible requirements for entry into the study will be randomized into one of the two treatment groups for 3 months in 2:1 ratio as shown below:

  1. Celecoxib 200mg and doxazosin 4mg once daily
  2. Doxazosin 4mg once daily

Condition Intervention Phase
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
Drug: Celecoxib 200mg and Doxazosin 4mg
Drug: Doxazosin 4mg
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: COX-2 Inhibitor Reduces Serum PSA Levels Might Predict a Lower Risk of Prostatic Cancer in Men With LUTS/BPH With an Elevated PSA Level
