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.

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

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: January 2006
Intervention Details:
    Drug: GW679769
    Other Name: GW679769
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
