Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in the Total International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ]
    IPSS is a disease-specific outcome measure based on the American Urological Association Symptom Index. The questionnaire consisted of seven items. The patient evaluated their urinary symptoms (incomplete emptying, frequency, hesitancy, urgency, weak stream, straining, and nocturia) during the previous 4 weeks. The total symptom score ranged from 0 (no symptoms) to 35 (most severe symptoms). A negative change from Baseline indicated improvement.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in the Total International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 6, Week 24 ]
    IPSS is a disease-specific outcome measure based on the American Urological Association Symptom Index. The questionnaire consisted of seven items. The patient evaluated their urinary symptoms (incomplete emptying, frequency, hesitancy, urgency, weak stream, straining, and nocturia) during the previous 4 weeks. The total symptom score ranged from 0 (no symptoms) to 35 (most severe symptoms). A negative change from Baseline indicated improvement.

  • Change From Baseline in Peak Urine Flow Rate [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 6, 12 and 24 ]
    Urinary flow was determined by uroflowmetry measured in milliliters/second (mL/sec). An increase from Baseline indicated improvement.

  • Duration of Effect [ Time Frame: 24 Weeks ]
    Duration of effect was calculated from the time of the first follow-up visit with a ≥ 4-point reduction from Baseline in IPSS to the next visit when the IPSS change from Baseline was < 4-points.
