Title: NETUPITANT FOR USE IN TREATING BLADDER DYSFUNCTION
Abstract:
The present invention relates to methods for reducing the frequency of bladder contractions without significantly affecting micturition pressure, comprising administering a pharmaceutical composition comprising a therapeutically effective amount of netupitant, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt or prodrug thereof. The method can be used to treat bladder dysfunction without significantly increasing residual volume, including urgency, frequency, pollakiuria, nocturia, low deferment time, suboptimal volume threshold, neurogenic bladder, or combinations thereof.
