Ages Eligible for Study:   50 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

- Men aged greater than or equal to 50 years with a history of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) related to BPH for greater than or equal to 6 months, an International Prostate Symptom Score (I-PSS) (0 to 35 points scale) of at least 13 points, a maximum urinary flow rate (Qmax) between 5 and 12 mL/sec (with a voided volume of greater than or equal to 150 mL), a residual urine volume of less than or equal to 350 mL, and a bothersomeness score (0 to 6 points scale) of at least 3 points. All patients will undergo prostate size assessment by transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) if not done within past 12 months.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Include, but are not limited to: concomitant lower urinary tract disease; previous prostatic surgery; history of postural hypotension or syncope; concomitant use of medications that may alter the voiding pattern; and clinically relevant biochemical abnormalities. Patients with a serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) >10 ng/mL will be excluded, and those with an elevated serum PSA between 4 and 10 ng/mL must have prostate cancer excluded to the satisfaction of the investigator.

The above information is not intended to contain all considerations relevant to a patient's potential participation in a clinical trial.
