A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Tolterodine Prolonged Release Compared With Propiverine for the Treatment of Korean Patients With Overactive Bladder as Assessed by Ambulatory Urodynamic Monitoring

This study has been completed.

Pfizer Identifier:
First received: March 26, 2008
Last updated: March 28, 2008

Drug: propiverine
Drug: tolterodine PR

Enrollment: 41
Study Start Date: March 2003
Study Completion Date: August 2003
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Propiverine/tolterodine group Drug: propiverine
Two week washout period followed by propiverine 20 mg capsule daily for 1 week, followed by a second 2-week washout; patients were then crossed over to tolterodine PR 4 mg capsule daily for 1 week.
Active Comparator: Tolerodine/propiverine group Drug: tolterodine PR
Two week washout period followed by tolterodine PR 4 mg capsule daily for 1 week, followed by a second 2-week washout; patients were then crossed over to propiverine 20 mg capsule daily for 1 week.
