Abstract

Overactive bladder (OAB) is a highly prevalent symptom condition that affects millions of US men and women. Not only can the symptoms of OAB be very bothersome, but OAB can have significant detrimental effects on many aspects of individuals’ lives, representing a particularly impactful health burden to quality of life and productivity. Estimates of the individual and societal costs for the management of OAB continue to rise, particularly as effective treatments remain elusive. As such, OAB represents a significant public health burden to the USA.
