Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of beta-alanine in combination with pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT) compared to PFMT plus placebo in men undergoing radical prostatectomy.


Clinical Trial Description

This study will assess efficacy of beta-alanine in combination with PFMT for the treatment of participants with urinary incontinence after radical prostatectomy. B-alanine is a component of L-carnosine (with L-histidine), which is needed for its synthesis. Βeta-alanine, thanks to its bioavailability) is a commonly used supplement that can improve exercise performance by increasing the amount of carnosine in striated muscle tissues. Supplementation of beta-alanine in elderly patients has resulted in an increase in physical activity, less fatigue and overall increase in L-carnosine concentration in muscles. PFMT utilization is considered a strong predictor of early return of urinary continence after radical prostatectomy (RP). We hypothesize, that combination of PFMT with beta-alanine could result in improved urinary continence after RP. The intervention will start 30 days before the surgery and will continue until primary outcome is met. Beta-alanine/placebo will be given daily. Efficacy, pharmacokinetics, biomarkers, tissue histology, participants reported outcomes and safety will be assessed. The total duration of study will be approximately 6 months. ;
