The immediate need to ‘go’ interrupts your day and night – and it may not be caused by your BPH.

  • Do you have to use the bathroom at least 8 times a day?

  • Do you still wake up 2 or more times each night to use the bathroom?

  • Do you experience a need to use the bathroom immediately (urinary urgency)?

If these symptoms disrupt your day and night, you may also have a condition called OAB.

About the COURAGE Study

A clinical research study is testing the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug in men on BPH therapy experiencing OAB symptoms. The investigational drug is compared with a placebo. A placebo looks exactly like the investigational drug but contains no active medication. Over 1000 participants in over 135 study centers across North America and Europe are expected to take part in the COURAGE Study.

What happens at the end of the study?

At the end of 26 weeks, you may be able to join a 28-week extension period, during which you will receive the investigational drug only. If you do not join the extension study, you will receive a telephone call from the study team 3 weeks after your last dose of the study drug to check on your overall health and well-being.

Can I take part?

To determine whether you are eligible to take part in the COURAGE Study, you will be invited to visit a study center to undergo medical tests and assessments. If eligible, you will be asked to return to the study center 10 more times to undergo further tests. You will be asked to take either the investigational drug or placebo every day for 26 weeks.
