Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Total International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) From Baseline to 12 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 weeks ]
    The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) is a rating scale for severity of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). The IPSS has a 7-component questionnaire. Each question is scored on a scale from 0 (none/no symptoms) to 5 (frequent symptoms), for a total score range of 0 to 35. Higher numerical scores from the IPSS questionnaire represent greater severity of symptoms. Least Squares (LS) Mean values were obtained from a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis. Model includes treatment, region, visit, baseline total IPSS, and visit-by-treatment interaction.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Total International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) From Baseline to 4 and 26 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks, 26 weeks ]
    The International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) is a rating scale for severity of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). The IPSS has a 7-component questionnaire. Each question is scored on a scale from 0 (none/no symptoms) to 5 (frequent symptoms), for a total score range of 0 to 35. Higher numerical scores from the IPSS questionnaire represent greater severity of symptoms. Least Squares (LS) Mean values were obtained from a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis. Model includes treatment, region, visit, baseline total IPSS, and visit-by-treatment interaction.

  • Change in International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) Subscores Index From Baseline to 4, 12, and 26 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks, 12 weeks, 26 weeks ]
    IPSS storage (irritative) subscore is the sum of Questions 2, 4 and 7 of the 7-component IPSS questionnaire. Scores range from 0 (no irritative symptoms) to 5 (frequent irritative symptoms), with total subscore of the 3 questions for irritative subscore range from 0 to 15. IPSS voiding (obstructive) subscore is the sum of Questions 1, 3, 5 and 6 of the IPSS questionnaire. Scores range from 0 (no obstructive symptoms) to 5 (frequent obstructive symptoms), with total subscore of the 4 questions of the obstructive score range from 0 to 20. Least Squares (LS) Mean values were obtained from a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis. Model includes treatment, region, visit, baseline total IPSS, and visit-by-treatment interaction.

    Self-reported erectile function over the past 4 weeks. IIEF- EF is the sum of Questions 1-5 and 15 of the IIEF. Questions 1-5 are scored 0 (low/no erectile function) to 5 (high erectile function) and Question 15 is scored 1 (very low confidence) to 5 (very high confidence), for a total score ranging from 1 to 30. Higher scores represent better erectile function. Least Squares (LS) Mean values were obtained from a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis. Model includes treatment, region, visit, baseline IIEF, and visit-by-treatment interaction.

  • Change in International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) - Overall Satisfaction Domain Scores From Baseline to 4, 12, and 26 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks, 12 weeks, 26 weeks ]
    Self-reported overall satisfaction over the past 4 weeks. IIEF-Overall Satisfaction is the sum of Questions 13 and 14 of IIEF questionnaire. Scores range from 1 (low/no satisfaction) to 5 (high satisfaction) for each question, with the total possible score for the 2 questions ranging from 2 to 10. Higher total scores indicate higher satisfaction. Least Squares (LS) Mean values were obtained from a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis. Model includes treatment, region, visit, baseline IIEF, and visit-by-treatment interaction.

  • Change in International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) - Intercourse Satisfaction Domain Scores From Baseline to 4, 12, and 26 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks, 12 weeks, 26 weeks ]
    Self-reported intercourse satisfaction over the past 4 weeks. IIEF-intercourse satisfaction is the sum of Questions 6, 7 and 8 of the IIEF. Scores range from 0 (low/no satisfaction) to 5 (high satisfaction) for each question, with the total possible score for the 3 questions of 0 to 15. Higher total scores indicate higher satisfaction. Least Squares (LS) Mean values were obtained from a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) analysis. Model includes treatment, region, visit, baseline IIEF, and visit-by-treatment interaction.
