Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Any On-treatment Adverse Events (AEs) or Any Serious Adverse Event (SAEs) and Treatment-related AEs [ Time Frame: From start of study medication until follow-up (up to 7 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An AE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a participant temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product at any dose, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease (new or exacerbated) temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product. An SAE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence that, at any dose, results in death, is life threatening, requires hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, results in disability/incapacity, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect, is an important medical event that jeopardizes the participants or may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the other outcomes listed in the above definition, and is associated with liver injury and impaired liver function.

  • Number of Participants With Any Post-treatment Adverse Events (AEs) or Any Serious Adverse Event (SAEs) and Treatment-related AEs [ Time Frame: From start of study medication until follow-up (up to 7 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    An AE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a participant temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product at any dose, whether or not considered related to the medicinal product. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease (new or exacerbated) temporally associated with the use of a medicinal product. An SAE is defined as any untoward medical occurrence that, at any dose, results in death, is life threatening, requires hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, results in disability/incapacity, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect, is an important medical event that jeopardizes the participants or may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the other outcomes listed in the above definition, and is associated with liver injury and impaired liver function.

  • Number of Participants With Abnormal Electrocardiogram (ECG) Findings at the Indicated Time Points [ Time Frame: Screening, Month 1, Month 3 and Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A 12 lead ECG was measured at Screening, Month 1 (Visit 1), Month 3 (Visit 3) and Month 6 (Visit 5).

  • Number of Participants With Clinical Chemistry Values Shift From Normal at Baseline to Abnormal at Any Time Post-Baseline [ Time Frame: Screening, Month 1, Month 3 and Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Blood samples were collected at Screening, Month 1 (Visit 1), Month 3 (Visit 3) and Month 6 (Visit 5) for chemistry laboratory assessments. Clinical chemistry parameters included alanine aminotrasferase (ALT), aspartate aminotrasferase (AST), creatinine, glucose, potassium, protein, sodium and urea. The number of participants with a shift from normal at Baseline to abnormal at any time post-Baseline for a clinical chemistry parameter are summarized.

  • Number of Participants With Hematology Values Shift From Normal at Baseline to Abnormal at Any Time Post-Baseline [ Time Frame: Screening, Month 3 and Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Blood samples were collected at Screening, Month 3 (Visit 3) and Month 6 (Visit 5) for hematology laboratory assessments. Hematology parameters included basophils, leukocytes, hemoglobin (HGB), eosinophils, erythrocytes (ery), ery mean Corpuscular HGB concentration, ery mean corpuscular HGB, ery distribution width, lymphocytes, hematocrit, monocytes, neutrophils and platelets. The number of participants with a shift from normal at Baseline to abnormal at any time post-Baseline for hematology parameters are summarized.

  • Number Participants With a Negative or Positive Response at the Indicated Time Points [ Time Frame: Screening, Month 3 and Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Urine samples were collected at Screening (SC), Month 3 (3M) and Month 6 (6M) for urinalysis laboratory assesment. Final value (FV) is defined as the latest post-Baseline value available in the study for each parameter.Urinalysis parameters included erythrocytes, glucose, ketones, leukocytes and protein. Number of participants with a negative (NEG) or positive (POS) response at the indicated time points are summarized.

  • Change From Baseline in Total Prostate -Specific Antigen (PSA) at the Indicated Time Points [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 3 and Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Serum sample was collected at Baseline, Month 3 and Month 6 for assesment of total PSA. PSA is a substance produced by prostate gland, and the elevated level of PSA indicates prostate cancer or any other non-cancerous condition related to prostate. Change from Baseline in total PSA at Month 3 and Month 6 was calculated as value at specified visist minus Baseline value.

  • Free to Total PSA Ratio at the Indicated Time Points [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Serum sample was collected at Screening (Baseline for participants with Free to Total PSA ratio at Month 6), and Month 6 for assessment of free to total PSA ratio. PSA is a substance produced by prostate gland, and the elevated level of PSA indicates prostate cancer or any other non-cancerous condition related to prostate. Free to total PSA ratio at Baseline for participants with free to total PSA Ratio at Month 6 and free to total PSA ratio at month 6 are presented.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) at Month 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The IPSS is a screening tool used to assess the symptoms of prostate related disease. The IPSS questionnaire consists of seven symptoms questions including feeling of incomplete bladder emptying, frequency, intermittency, urgency, weak stream, straining and nocturia, each referring to during the last month, and each involving assignment of a score from 0 to 5 (no symptoms to almost always symptoms) for a total of maximum 35 points. IPSS total is the sum of the scores of seven questions; therefore, the possible total score ranges from 0 to 35 (0-7: Mildly symptomatic; 8-19: Moderately symptomatic; 20-35: Severely symptomatic). IPSS was assessed at Baseline and Month 6. Change from Baseline was calculated as Month 6 IPSS score- minus Baseline IPSS score.

  • Change From Baseline in Maximum Rate of Urinary Flow (Qmax) at the Indicated Time Points [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 3 and Month 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The Qmax is used as an indicator for the diagnosis of enlarged prostate. A lower Qmax may indicate that the enlarged prostate. Qmax was assessed at Baseline (screening), Month 3 and Month 6. Change from Baseline was calculated as Qmax score at specified timepoint minus the Baseline Qmax score.
