Men with enlarged prostates (also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH) often describe the need to urinate frequently during the night (known as nocturia) as one of the most bothersome symptoms they experience as part of their condition. Its impact on sleep, and on the sleep of a partner, can also affect other areas of their lives. A nationwide study is now looking at whether a pill taken each night before bedtime can help more patients with nocturia make it through the night without needing to use the bathroom.
The EQUINOC Study will look at the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication in men with nocturia. The study will include approximately 425 men from across the United States.
We are now looking for people to participate in the study. You, or someone you know, may be able to take part in the EQUINOC Study if you or they:
- are a man who is at least 18 years of age
- have been diagnosed with an enlarged prostate gland (known as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH)
- have been bothered by nocturia for at least 1 year.
If you are eligible and choose to take part in the study, it will last for about 4 months and will involve up to nine visits to the study center. There will be no cost to you to participate, and you will be carefully monitored by a team of experienced doctors and nurses.
