Dose-Escalating Study of Propiverine Hydrochloride in Children Suffering From Overactive Bladder


The open-label dose-escalating two-centre study was designed to assess the pharmacokinetics as well as safety, tolerability and efficacy parameters of propiverine in patients 5-10 years of age suffering from frequency-urgency-syndrome and urinary incontinence indicative of detrusor overactivity (overactive bladder) for determination of the recommended dose in children.

Full Title of Study: “Dose-Escalating Study of Propiverine Hydrochloride (Mictonetten®) in Children Suffering From Frequency-Urgency-Syndrome and Urinary Incontinence Indicative of Detrusor Overactivity (Overactive Bladder)”

Study Type

  • Study Type: Interventional
  • Study Design
    • Masking: None (Open Label)


  • Drug: propiverine hydrochloride
    • coated tablets containing 5 mg consecutive dose escalation of 5 mg, 10 mg or 15 mg propiverine b.i.d.

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Experimental: propiverine hydrochloride

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Pharmacokinetic parameters of propiverine and its main metabolite propiverine N-oxide at steady state: Ctrough, Cmax, Tmax, AUC0-8h. Children were separated into 3 groups.

Secondary Measures

  • Tolerability of propiverine. Efficacy: Changes from baseline: voiding frequency, incontinence and urgency episodes,voided volume. Safety: Post Void Residual (PVR),adverse events,laboratory values (urine, blood), ECG.
    • Time Frame: two weeks
