If your child has overactive bladder problems due to a nervous system condition (such as spina bifida), then he or she might be interested in participating in a clinical research trial for young people with neurogenic overactive bladder – medically known as “Neurogenic Detrusor Overactivity” or “NDO”.
NDO can sometimes result in:
- Difficulty staying dry during the day or night
- Experiencing a feeling of urgency — a sudden and unexpected need to immediately urinate
- Having to use a tube (catheter) to empty all urine from the bladder
Your child may be eligible to participate in a clinical research trial.
Parexel is conducting a clinical research trial in children
between 6 and 16 years old, weighing over 25 kgs (55 lbs), who have NDO. The study lasts for 26 weeks. It involves at least 5 clinic visits, and you and your child would receive at least 4 additional contacts from the doctor’s study team.
Study participants will receive study drugs at no cost and may receive compensation for travel to medical appointments.
