Brief Summary:

The primary objective is to investigate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of 2 doses of alfuzosin (given as a solution or tablets depending on age) in children and adolescents 2 to 16 years of age with elevated detrusor Leak Point Pressure (LPP) (≥40 cm H2O) of neuropathic etiology stratified into 2 age groups (2 to 7 years and 8 to 16 years).

The secondary objectives are to investigate the safety and tolerability of the 2 dose regimens and to determine the effect of the 2 dose regimens on detrusor LPP.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
