    Group D-Denovo: Leak point pressure (LPP) Response at(response defined as a subject who achieves an LPP pressure <40 cm H2O) at the end of treatment based on two confirmatory values. Group D-527.51 Rollover: Leak point pressure (LPP) Response at (response defined as a subject who achieves an LPP pressure <40 cm H2O) last value of the treatment based on two confirmatory values. The last value on treatment included any final value prior to discontinuation of treatment, regardless of the length of treatment. Detrusor leak point pressure (LPP) recorded in cm H2O which was obtained using a standard urodynamic technique, a cystometrogram. Descriptive statistics were used to assess this endpoint. This Outcome Measure was only pre-specified for Group D-Denovo and Group D-527.51 Rollover subjects, so results of these two groups are provided.

  • Number of LPP Responders at Each Visit Over Time (Classified by Last Value on Treatment) for Group D-527.51 Rollover.

    Number of Leak point pressure (LPP) Responders at each visit (week) over time (classified by last value on treatment). Due to the early termination of the study, most of the LPP assessments were conducted within Weeks 1-9 of treatment. Summary of LPP response rates provided over time.The subjects are classified according to the treatment they were receiving at the last value on treatment. Therefore, no assumptions can be made regarding what dose they were receiving at a particular time point. LD: Low Dose, MD: Medium Dose and HD: High Dose This Outcome Measure was only pre-specified for Group D-527.51 Rollover subjects, so results of this group is provided.
