Fesoterodine for Children with Bladder Over activity

Safety and Efficacy of Fesoterodine in Children with Bladder Overactivity


Fesoterodine is a drug approved in Europe and USA to treat an overactive bladder condition known in adults but due to lack of research it is not yet FDA approved for children. This bladder condition has been associated with damage to the nervous system and is known as Neurogenic detrusor over activity (NDO).

The purpose of this trial is to study the effects of the Fesoterodine medicine provided to children diagnosed with NDO. We will also compare the effects of Fesoterodine with Oxybutynin, a widely approved medicine commonly used to treat NDO in children.
