The primary objective is to assess the dose-response relationship of SL77.0499 10 (alfuzosin hydrochloride) 5 mg, 10 mg, 15 mg, and placebo once daily during a 12-week oral administration period for the efficacy in patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) related to BPH.

Secondary objectives are to assess the efficacy of each dose of alfuzosin as compared with placebo and to assess the safety of each dose of alfuzosin.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary efficacy assessment is the change from baseline in International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) total score at the end-of-study (EOS) visit.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy: changes from baseline in IPSS total score by visit;·IPSS irritative and obstructive subscores,·urinary peak flow rate and residual urine volume at EOS and by visit.
  • Safety: adverse events, vital signs, laboratory tests.
