L-O-MÂ® MCS in the Treatment of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms
The hypothesis of the study is to examine whether L-O-M® Multi-Carotenoids (MCS) is safe and effective in the treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms suggestive of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
This is an adaptive trial design, that combines elements of a Phase 2b (dose ranging) study and a Phase 3 (hypothesis testing) study, the objectives for the two phases are separate.
Phase 2b Objectives: The primary objective of the Phase 2b portion of this study is to evaluate, in a treatment-naïve population, the 0 mg (placebo), 15 mg, and 30 mg L-O-M® MCS in terms of dose response and to determine the optimal dose to be used in the Phase 3 portion of this trial. The secondary objective of this portion of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of the 15 mg and 30 mg L-O-M® MCS.
Phase 3 Objectives: The primary objective of the Phase 3 portion of this study is to evaluate, in a treatment-naïve population, the effectiveness of the L-O-M® MCS (at the dosage determined in the Phase 2b portion of this study), as compared to MCS placebo (0 mg), in reducing the lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) suggestive of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The secondary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of L-O-M® MCS (at the dosage determined in the Phase 2b portion of this study), as compared to MCS placebo (0 mg).
