First received: November 13, 2008
Last updated: November 20, 2008
Last verified: November 2008
The open-label dose-escalating two-centre study was designed to assess the pharmacokinetics as well as safety, tolerability and efficacy parameters of propiverine in patients 5-10 years of age suffering from frequency-urgency-syndrome and urinary incontinence indicative of detrusor overactivity (overactive bladder) for determination of the recommended dose in children.

Condition Intervention Phase
Overactive Bladder Drug: propiverine hydrochloride Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Masking: None (Open Label)
Official Title: Dose-Escalating Study of Propiverine Hydrochloride (Mictonetten®) in Children Suffering From Frequency-Urgency-Syndrome and Urinary Incontinence Indicative of Detrusor Overactivity (Overactive Bladder)

Further study details as provided by APOGEPHA Arzneimittel GmbH:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic parameters of propiverine and its main metabolite propiverine N-oxide at steady state: Ctrough, Cmax, Tmax, AUC0-8h. Children were separated into 3 groups.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Tolerability of propiverine. Efficacy: Changes from baseline: voiding frequency, incontinence and urgency episodes,voided volume. Safety: Post Void Residual (PVR),adverse events,laboratory values (urine, blood), ECG. [ Time Frame: two weeks ]
