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
"I was on edge when I first went to DCOL Research because of the sensitive nature of my diagnosis. Upon arrival to the research office I was treated very kindly and professionally as soon as I signed in. The Research Coordinator was friendly and compassionate and made me feel at ease. I was informed about the trial and they ensured that I had a clear understanding of the information. During all my visits I felt at ease and informed. The Research Coordinator is very professional as is the Lab Coordinator. It is always a smooth process and the staff is confident and friendly. The study doctor is also helpful and always asks if I have any problems or concerns, just like the staff."
