Clinical Trials

Overactive Bladder (2002)

Posted on 4/16/2018

This study is testing an investigational drug for women with symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB).  Symptoms of OAB include a sudden urge to urinate, with or without the ability to hold urine in the bladder.  People with OAB often urinate many times throughout the day and night.

The purpose of this study is to decide the best dose of the investigational drug on improving symptoms when given twice daily and when compared with the other dose and/or placebo.

Participation in the study will last about 4 months which includes 7 visits to the clinic. 

You may quality if you:


  • Are an adult female, 18 to 80 years of age
  • Have a greater than 6-month history of symptoms of OAB, defined as:

            Urgency: a sudden urge to urinate or the need to hurry to get to the toilet to urinate, associated with:
                       Episodes of urinary incontinence or loss of bladder control following the sudden urge to urinate that cannot be delayed.
                       Mixed incontinence: episodes of urgency and stress urinary incontinence in which urgency urinary incontinence is considered most bothersome to the subject.
                       Frequency (frequent urination): 8 micturitions per day (day and nighttime).

There is no charge to you or your insurance company.  You may receive up to $455.00 if you complete the study.

What Our Research Patients are Saying
"Last January I had to begin taking insulin for my diabetes. It was life changing for me. I had always been afraid of starting insulin. However, when I qualified for the diabetes clinical trial, it helped me accept this change in my life. The Research Coordinators are the very best you could ask for. They explained everything and let me know what to expect. I could never have controlled my diabetes if it hadn't been for this research program, the research staff and the study doctor. I would recommend participating in a research trial to anyone who has diabetes. It and the research staff are a godsend."
