Abstract

AIMS: Two phase 2 studies were conducted to assess the efficacy and safety of lidocaine-releasing intravesical system (LiRIS) in patients with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) with (Study 001; NCT02395042) or without, (Study 002; NCT02411110) Hunner lesions (HL).

METHODS: Both were multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, and enrolled women aged ≥18 years. In Study 001, patients were randomized 2:1:1 to LiRIS 400 mg/LiRIS 400 mg, placebo/LiRIS 400 mg, or placebo/placebo for a continuous 28 (2 × 14)-day period. In Study 002, patients were randomized 1:1 to LiRIS 400 mg or placebo for a continuous (single treatment) 14-day period.

RESULTS: In total, 59 and 131 patients received treatment in Studies 001 and 002, respectively. There was no statistically significant difference in the primary endpoint, the change from baseline to Week 4 of follow-up post-removal in mean daily average bladder numeric rating scale (NRS) pain score in either study (Study 001: placebo/placebo, -1.6; LiRIS/LiRIS, -2.7, p = 0.142; placebo/LiRIS, -2.5, p = 0.319; Study 002: LiRIS -1.2; placebo, -1.5, p = 0.505). There was no statistically significant difference between groups in daily worst NRS pain score, number of micturitions/day or urgency episodes/day. There was no clear trend for reduction in number of HL for LiRIS vs placebo. The frequency of treatment-emergent adverse events was similar between treatment groups in both studies; most were mild or moderate intensity.

CONCLUSION: These studies did not demonstrate a treatment effect of LiRIS 400 mg compared with placebo, either in patients with IC/BPS with HL, or in those without HL.
