Details and patient eligibility

About

This is a 2-part study to assess if vibegron (MK-4618) reduces the number of daily urinations more effectively than placebo in participants with overactive bladder (OAB). The primary hypothesis of the base study is that administration of vibegron demonstrates a dose-related reduction, compared with placebo, in average number of daily micturitions in participants with OAB after 8 weeks of treatment.

Full description

All participants received placebo (run-in) for 1 week prior to randomization to Parts 1 and 2. Participants who complete the base study may be screened for a year-long, multicenter extension for assessment of long-term safety and efficacy.

Enrollment
