Urovant recently reported positive long-term data for its lead product candidate, vibegron, an oral, once-daily small molecule beta-3 agonist being evaluated for overactive bladder (OAB). The extension of the 12-week pivotal phase 3 EMPOWUR study demonstrated a favorable long-term safety and tolerability profile for vibegron and further improved treatment benefit on key overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms over the 40-week extension period.
Vibegron is also being evaluated in a phase 3 study for the treatment of OAB in men with benign prostatic hyperplasia and in a phase 2a study for abdominal pain associated with irritable bowel syndrome.
Urovant’s second product candidate, URO-902, is a novel gene therapy being developed for patients with OAB who have failed oral pharmacological therapy and Urovant Sciences intends to develop novel treatments for additional urologic diseases.
