CAMBRIDGE, UK – PROVESICA LTD, a clinical-stage urology drug development company, announced today the publication of phase 1 human clinical data on XEN-D0501, the company’s TRPV1 antagonist currently being evaluated in a phase 2 clinical study for the treatment of overactive bladder (OAB). The phase 1 study, published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology1, demonstrated the drug to be safe and well tolerated at doses up to 5 mg twice daily for 14 days.
