If you are like many women, you may be experiencing unintentional urine leakage caused by physical activity – and you are not alone. It’s a common condition called Stress Urinary Incontinence, or SUI.
SUI-related urine leakage often occurs with common physical activities such as laughing, coughing, sneezing, and exercising. Essentially, any activity that increases pressure in the bladder creates a risk of urine leakage, which can be as simple as lifting a package or exiting a car.
SUI may be caused by the weakening of muscles and tissues that support the bladder.
The ASTRID research study (aka “The Leak Study”) is testing an investigational medication for women who experience the symptoms of Stress Urinary Incontinence.
We are seeking post-menopausal women who have been experiencing unintentional urine leakage that occurs with physical activity.
Qualified participants will receive study-related care and investigational medication from a local doctor at no cost.
You may qualify if you:
Are a woman between 18 and 80 years of age
Are postmenopausal or have undergone a medically induced or surgical menopause (hysterectomy)
Have not had surgical intervention for Stress Urinary Incontinence (such as a vaginal sling procedure)
Have had stress urinary incontinence for at least the past 6 months
There are other eligibility requirements. A final decision on whether this research study might be suitable for you will be made after you speak with the local research team.
Specialists throughout the country are seeking participants for our study. Enter your zip code below to find a study center near you.
