- The Primary Efficacy Endpoint of This Study is Change in the 'Average Pain' NPRS Score. [ Time Frame: Baseline and 4 Weeks ]Subjects were instructed to select a number on a scale that best described the severity of bladder pain during the past 24 hours. The scale was between 0 and 10 where 0 was no pain and 10 was the worst pain possible. The scale was completed by telephone (an interactive voice response system[IVRS]) every evening at bedtime.
- Painful Bladder/Interstitial Cystitis Symptom Diary (PBIC-SD) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 4 Weeks ]The PBIC-SD was an 8-item subject self-report measure for assessing the severity of bladder pain syndrome. All items were graded on a scale from 0 (good condition) to 4 (poor condition) for a total score between 0 and 32.
- O'Leary-Sant Interstitial Cystitis Symptom Index (ICSI) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 4 Weeks ]The ICSI contains 4 items that measured how problematic symptoms were for subjects with bladder pain syndrome. Each question in the ICPI was on a scale of 0-4, where each answer was given a specific rating. The sum of the item scores indicated more problematic symptoms. The index score ranged from 0-16 where higher scores indicated more problematic symptoms.
- Genitourinary Pain Index (GUPI) [ Time Frame: Baseline and 4 Weeks ]The GUPI is an instrument that is used to assess the degree of symptoms in women with genitourinary pain complaints. The sum of the items yields three subscales and a total score. The subscales are pain (0-23), urinary (0-10), and quality of life (0-12). The sum of the subscales is the total score (0-45). Higher scores indicate more severe symptoms.
