Neurokinin-1 (NK-1) receptor is required in antigen-induced cystitis. (1/150)

Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a debilitating disease that has been adversely affecting the quality of women's lives for many years. The trigger in IC is not entirely known, and a role for the sensory nerves in its pathogenesis has been suggested. In addition to inflammation, increased mast cell numbers in the detrusor muscle have been reported in a subset of IC patients. Experimentally, several lines of evidence support a central role for substance P and neurokinin-1 (NK-1) receptors in cystitis. The availability of mice genetically deficient in neurokinin-1 receptor (NK-1R(-/-)) allows us to directly evaluate the importance of substance P in cystitis. An unexpected finding of this investigation is that NK-1R(-/-) mice present increased numbers of mast cells in the bladder when compared with wild-type control mice. Despite the increase in mast cell numbers, no concomitant inflammation was observed. In addition, bladder instillation of wild-type mice with a sensitizing antigen induces activation of mast cells and an acute inflammatory response characterized by plasma extravasation, edema, and migration of neutrophils. Antigen-sensitized NK-1R(-/-) mice also exhibit bladder mast cell degranulation in response to antigen challenge. However, NK-1R(-/-) mice are protected from inflammation, failing to present bladder inflammatory cell infiltrate or edema in response to antigen challenge. This work presents the first evidence of participation of NK-1 receptors in cystitis and a mandatory participation of these receptors on the chain of events linking mast cell degranulation and inflammation.  (+info)

Urothelial pathophysiological changes in feline interstitial cystitis: a human model. (2/150)

Unique barrier properties of the urothelial surface membrane permit urine storage. Interstitial cystitis causes disabling dysuria, and frequency. Similarly, feline interstitial cystitis (FIC) occurs in cats. These studies define the permeability and structural properties of normal and FIC urothelium. To determine the effects of bladder filling, groups were studied before and after hydrodistention. Normal urothelium with or without hydrodistention exhibited high transepithelial resistances (TER) and low water and urea permeabilities, resembling other species. Fluorescence confocal microscopy revealed localization of the marker AE-31 to the apical surface of all umbrella cells in normal urothelium, with the tight junction protein ZO-1 localized to tight junctions. Scanning and transmission electron microscopy revealed uniform distribution of luminal cells with characteristic apical membrane and tight junction morphology. Urothelium in FIC animals displayed reduced TER and increased water and urea permeability following hydrodistention. Structural studies in FIC revealed denuded urothelium, with appearance of AE-31 in underlying epithelial cells. The results demonstrate severe epithelial damage and dysfunction in FIC and suggest novel approaches toward examining the etiology and therapy of IC.  (+info)

Interstitial cystitis: a retrospective analysis of treatment with pentosan polysulfate and follow-up patient survey. (3/150)

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of pentosan polysulfate sodium (PPS) in relieving symptoms of interstitial cystitis, the authors retrospectively reviewed charts of 260 patients in whom interstitial cystitis had been diagnosed. Subsequently, they conducted a follow-up phone interview or mail survey of those patients who were treated with PPS to investigate changes in the patients' symptoms, adverse effects, and change in quality of life. The control group consisted of patients whose interstitial cystitis had been diagnosed at cystoscopy and had a duration of at least 1 year and who had taken at least one or more oral medications for their symptoms. The average length of treatment was 9.3 months among the 27 subjects on PPS therapy. The mean length of time that they had diagnosed interstitial cystitis was 35.63 months and 48.78 months for the PPS-treated and control groups, respectively, with no statistically significant difference. Changes in frequency, urgency, and pain were greater in the treatment group and statistically significant (P = .11, P = .49, and P = .004, respectively). No change occurred in the rate of nocturia in the PPS-treated group compared with that in the control group. Symptoms of both groups improved over time, but improvement was statistically significantly greater in the treatment group (P = .001) over the treatment interval. The most common side effect attributable to PPS was diarrhea in 15% of subjects. Pentosan proved to be an efficacious option for reducing the debilitating symptoms of interstitial cystitis.  (+info)

Interstitial cystitis. Etiology, diagnosis, and treatment. (4/150)

OBJECTIVE: To review current knowledge about the epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of interstitial cystitis, with special emphasis on management of this condition by family physicians. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: Articles were identified through MEDLINE and review of abstracts presented at Urology and Interstitial Cystitis meetings during the last decade. Recent reviews were further searched for additional studies and trials. Data were summarized from large epidemiologic studies. Etiologic theories were extracted from current concepts and reviews of scientific studies. Diagnostic criteria described in this review are based on clinical interpretation of National Institutes of Health (NIH) research guidelines, interpretation of data from the NIH Interstitial Cystitis Cohort Study, and recent evidence on use of the potassium sensitivity test. Treatment suggestions are based on six randomized placebo-controlled clinical treatment trials and best available clinical data. MAIN MESSAGE: Interstitial cystitis affects about 0.01% to 0.5% of women. Its etiology is unknown, but might involve microbiologic, immunologic, mucosal, neurogenic, and other yet undefined agents. The diagnosis of interstitial cystitis is a diagnosis of exclusion. It is impossible to provide a purely evidence-based treatment strategy, but review of available evidence suggests that conservative supportive therapy (including diet modification); oral treatment with pentosan polysulfate, amitriptyline, or hydroxyzine; and intravesical treatments with heparinlike medications, dimethyl sulfoxide, or BCG vaccine could benefit some patients. CONCLUSION: Family physicians should have an understanding of interstitial cystitis and be able to make a diagnosis and formulate an evidence-based treatment strategy for their patients.  (+info)

Comorbid clinical conditions in chronic fatigue: a co-twin control study. (5/150)

OBJECTIVES: Chronically fatiguing illness, defined as fatigue for at least 6 months, has been associated with various physical health conditions. Our objective was to determine whether there is a significant relationship between chronically fatiguing illness and 10 clinical conditions that frequently appear to be associated with fatigue, adjusting for the potentially confounding effects of psychiatric illness. DESIGN: A co-twin control study controlling for genetic and many environmental factors by comparing chronically fatigued twins with their nonfatigued co-twins. SETTING: A nationally distributed volunteer twin registry. PARTICIPANTS: The study included 127 twin pairs in which one member of the pair experienced fatigue of at least 6 months' duration and the co-twin was healthy and denied chronic fatigue. Fatigued twins were classified into 3 levels using increasingly stringent diagnostic criteria. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Twins reported on a history of fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivities, temporomandibular disorder, interstitial cystitis, postconcussion syndrome, tension headache, chronic low back pain, chronic pelvic pain (women), and chronic nonbacterial prostatitis (men). The prevalence of these comorbid clinical conditions was significantly higher in the fatigued twins compared to their nonfatigued co-twins. Most notably, compared to their nonfatigued co-twins, the chronically fatigued twins had higher rates of fibromyalgia (> 70% vs < 10%) and irritable bowel syndrome (> 50% vs < 5%). The strongest associations were observed between chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia (odds ratios > 20), irritable bowel syndrome, chronic pelvic pain, multiple chemical sensitivities, and temporomandibular disorder (all with odds ratios > or = 4). Regression analysis suggested that the number of comorbid clinical conditions associated with chronic fatigue could not be attributed solely to psychiatric illness. CONCLUSIONS: Chronically fatiguing illnesses were associated with high rates of many other clinical conditions. Thus, patients with chronic fatigue may present a complex clinical picture that poses diagnostic and management challenges. Nonetheless, clinicians should assess such patients for the presence of comorbid clinical conditions. Future research should provide a better understanding of the temporal relationship of the onset of fatigue and these conditions, and develop strategies for early intervention.  (+info)

Interstitial cystitis: urgency and frequency syndrome. (6/150)

Interstitial cystitis is a chronic, severely debilitating disease of the urinary bladder. Excessive urgency and frequency of urination, suprapubic pain, dyspareunia, chronic pelvic pain and negative urine cultures are characteristic of interstitial cystitis. The course of the disease is usually marked by flare-ups and remissions. Other conditions that should be ruled out include bacterial cystitis, urethritis, neoplasia, vaginitis and vulvar vestibulitis. Interstitial cystitis is diagnosed by cystoscopy and hydrodistention of the bladder. Glomerulations or Hunner's ulcers found at cystoscopy are diagnostic. Oral treatments of interstitial cystitis include pentosan polysulfate, tricyclic antidepressants and antihistamines. Intravesicular therapies include hydrodistention, dimethyl sulfoxide and heparin, or a combination of agents. Referral to a support group should be offered to all patients with interstitial cystitis.  (+info)

A portuguese isolate of Borrelia lusitaniae induces disease in C3H/HeN mice. (7/150)

A low-passage, Portuguese isolate of Borrelia lusitaniae, strain PotiB2, was inoculated into C3H/HeN mice and disease was monitored by histopathology at 8 weeks after spirochaete challenge. Ear, heart, bladder, femoro-tibial joint, brain and spinal cord were examined. B. lusitaniae strain PotiB2 (6 of 10 mice) and B. burgdorferi sensu stricto strain N40 (9 of 10 mice) induced similar lesions in the bladder of infected mice characterised as a multifocal, lymphoid, interstitial cystitis. Moreover, both B. lusitaniae PotiB2 and B. burdorferi N40 induced lesions in the heart of infected mice. The lesions induced by B. lusitaniae PotiB2 (2 of 10 mice) were characterised as a severe, necrotising endarteritis of the aorta, with a minimal, mixed inflammatory infiltrate (neutrophils, macrophages and lymphoid cells) extending into the adjacent myocardium. In contrast, B. burgdorferi N40 induced a periarteritis of the pulmonary artery (7 of 10 mice), with no involvement of the endothelium and more extensive inflammation and subsequent necrosis of the adjacent myocardium. This infiltrate was composed entirely of mononuclear cells, predominantly mature lymphocytes and plasma cells. No lesions were noted in the joints or central nervous system with inoculation of strains N40 or PotiB2, and co-inoculation of either strain with Ixodes ricinus salivary gland lysate did not affect the resulting pathology. Serology, examined 8 weeks after inoculation, indicated a different reactivity in mice infected with B. lusitaniae PotiB2 compared with B. burgdorferi N40. Immunoblot analysis demonstrated that mice with lesions resulting from infection with B. lusitaniae PotiB2 reacted only to the flagellin protein (41 kDa) or to flagellin and OspC, whereas mice infected with B. burgdorferi N40 reacted with multiple high and low mol. wt proteins, including flagellin, p93, p39, OspA, OspB and OspC. These results indicate that B. lusitaniae PotiB2 induced pathology similar to B. burgdorferi N40 when inoculated into susceptible mice. Moreover, these results establish the first animal model of disease with B. lusitaniae. This mouse model can be used to characterise the immunopathogenesis of B. lusitaniae infection and to delineate the proteins responsible for disease induction in susceptible mice.  (+info)

Delayed toxicity of cyclophosphamide on the bladder of DBA/2 and C57BL/6 female mouse. (8/150)

The present study describes the delayed development of a severe bladder pathology in a susceptible strain of mice (DBA/2) but not in a resistant strain (C57BL/6) when both were treated with a single 300 mg/kg dose of cyclophosphamide (CY). Inbred DBA/2 and C57BL/6 female mice were injected with CY, and the effect of the drug on the bladder was assessed during 100 days by light microscopy using different staining procedures, and after 30 days by conventional electron microscopy. Early CY toxicity caused a typical haemorrhagic cystitis in both strains that was completely repaired in about 7-10 days. After 30 days of CY injection ulcerous and non-ulcerous forms of chronic cystitis appeared in 86% of DBA/2 mice but only in 4% of C57BL/6 mice. Delayed cystitis was characterized by infiltration and transepithelial passage into the lumen of inflammatory cells and by frequent exfoliation of the urothelium. Mast cells appeared in the connective and muscular layers of the bladder at a much higher number in DBA/2 mice than in C57BL/6 mice or untreated controls. Electron microscopy disclosed the absence of the typical discoidal vesicles normally present in the cytoplasm of surface cells. Instead, numerous abnormal vesicles containing one or several dark granules were observed in the cytoplasm of cells from all the epithelial layers. Delayed cystitis still persisted in DBA/2 mice 100 days after treatment. These results indicate that delayed toxicity of CY in female DBA/2 mice causes a bladder pathology that is not observed in C57BL/6 mice. This pathology resembles interstitial cystitis in humans and could perhaps be used as an animal model for studies on the disease.  (+info)

Nevertheless, no previous study has reported the association between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and BPS/IC. In this retrospective cohort study, we examined the risk of BPS/IC among subjects with OSA during a 3-year follow-up in Taiwan using a population-based dataset. Methods: This study comprised 2,940 study subjects with OSA, and 29,400 randomly selected comparison subjects. We individually followed-up each sampled subject (n = 32,340) for a 3-year period to identify those subjects who ...
OBJECTIVE: To examine the significant placebo effect in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome trial. Randomized clinical trials are the reference standard for therapeutic impact assessment. However, proving efficacy of treatments for interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome with rigorous placebo-controlled trials is difficult due to a significant effect of the placebo intervention.. METHODS: Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome patients were randomized to receive subcutaneous adalimumab or subcutaneous placebo every 2 weeks for 12 weeks and outcome measures were assessed.. RESULTS: Of the 43 patients, 21 received adalimumab and 22 received placebo. Of the patients who received placebo, there was a statistically significant improvement demonstrated in the OLeary-Sant Interstitial Cystitis Symptom and Problem Indexes of -8.1 (95% confidence interval [CI], 3.0-13.2), Interstitial Cystitis Symptom Index of -3.7 (95% CI, 0.9-6.5), ...

Activation of mast cells plays an important role in the pathogenesis of bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC). Histamine, a mast cell-derived mediators, induced inflammation and hypersensitivity of the bladder. The present study investigated the expressions of histamine receptors in the bladder wall tissues of patients with BPS/IC, and its association with the effectiveness of antihistamine therapy and disease symptoms. Bladder tissues were collected from 69 BPS/IC patients and 10 control female patients. The expression of H3R in BPS/IC was further examined in an independent cohort of 10 female patients with BPS/IC and another 10 age-matched female patients. Immunohistochemistry, Western blotting, and quantitative RT-PCR were performed to quantify the expressions of histamine receptors. Statistical analyses of the correlation of histamine receptor expression with antihistamine therapy outcome and severity of disease symptoms were also performed. The expression of four histamine receptors
The etiology of interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) remains elusive and may involve multiple causes. To better understand its pathophysiology, many efforts have been made to create IC/BPS models. Most existing models of IC/BPS strive to recreate bladder-related features by applying noxious intravesical or systemic stimuli to healthy animals. These models are useful to help understand various mechanisms; however, they are limited to demonstrating how the bladder and nervous system respond to noxious stimuli, and are not representative of the complex interactions and pathophysiology of IC/BPS. To study the various factors that may be relevant for IC/BPS, at least 3 different types of animal models are commonly used: (1) bladder-centric models, (2) models with complex mechanisms, and (3) psychological and physical stressors/natural disease models. It is obvious that all aspects of the human disease cannot be mimicked by a single model. It may be the case that several models, each ...
Interstitial Cystitis (bladder pain syndrome or BPS) is a chronic pain condition that affects the bladder. Symptoms range from mild discomfort to severe pain and inflammation, which often gets worse as the bladder fills. An urgency to urinate, frequent urination, pressure, or tenderness in the pelvic area and/or genitals, pain during sexual intercourse, or pain during ejaculation for men are additional symptoms. The exact cause is unknown. This condition, which primarily affects women, is a non-bacterial inflammation of the bladder characterized by pain associated with urination, urinary frequency (as often as every 10 minutes), urgency, pressure in the bladder and/or pelvis, and often pain during sexual intercourse. Currently, this problem is thought to be an autoimmune condition as evidenced by the characteristic changes to the tissues below the surface cells of the bladder. When the surface layer cells of the bladder (which consist of glycosaminoglycans) are damaged (via a urinary tract ...

An IC friendly diet consists of 100% unprocessed foods and at least 2 litres of filtered water a day. It should be noted that every IC paptient should receive an individuel, taylor-made food plan in order to make sure that his or her needs and sensitivities are resepected. The personalized IC diet is high in fibres and nutrients and forms the basis of a healthy and balanced diet. Even though an IC friendly diet is packed with nutrients, it is important to replenish depleted body cells with the help of dietary supplements. IC patients need such high amounts of nutrients, that it is impossible to gather these from food only. The use of acid-free vitamin C, vitamin D3, B-vitamins and magnesium supplements is indispensable. Substances like particular antioxidants as well as probiotics and psyllium husk may also help the body to become stronger and healthy. It depends of the patients personal needs if other supplements might be also useful. It should be noted that there are a lot of different types ...
While there is no cure for PBS/IC, there are several surgical and non-surgical treatment options available. A combination of these options is usually required for symptom control. Finding the combination of options that will provide relief often requires diligence and patience.Non-surgical Treatments:Bladder diet:Following a bladder diet means avoiding food and beverages that irritate the bladder and intensify urinary symptoms of PBS/IC. A bladder elimination diet is a method to determine which particular foods and beverages make your symptoms worse.Pelvic floor therapy:Pelvic floor therapy consists of visits to a physical therapist with specialized training in pelvic floor disorders. These specialized physical therapists utilize a combination of various techniques, listed below, depending on the type of urogynecological condition they are treating.Bladder training:Bladder training consists of learning to use the pelvic floor muscles to suppress overactive bladder symptoms, including urinary urgency,
The exact cause of PSC/IC is unknown. However, multiple factors are believed to be involved, including disruption of the bladder lining with resulting overactivity of pain-sensing nerve fibers in the bladder. Risk factors for PBS/IC include young age, female gender, and a family history of PBS/IC.

At the meeting, the panel voted 15 to 0 that patients with interstitial cystitis and patients with bladder pain syndrome should be combined in clinical trials. This is aligned with the current American Urological Association (AUA) guideline and Aquinoxs position that IC/BPS is a single symptom complex defined by bladder pain and urinary symptoms.. The following statement may be attributed to Aquinox President & CEO David Main:. We greatly appreciate the FDAs interest in this chronic, often debilitating condition and the Agencys commitment to helping accelerate the development of new and effective treatment options, which are desperately needed for patients suffering from IC/BPS. The Committees vote is aligned with the approach we have taken in Aquinoxs clinical development program for rosiptor (AQX-1125). We look forward to additional interaction with the Agency based on todays discussion as we advance our program.. The following statement may be attributed to Aquinox Chief Medical ...

Patients struggling with bladder, bowel, vulvar and prostate disorders often wonder about the connection between these conditions. Dr. Robert Echenberg discusses complex abdominal and pelvic pain syndrome (CAPPS).
Background Global consensus on the standardization of terminology for interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome is lacking and is in the formative stages. The Workshop on Hunner lesion versus non-Hunner lesion at the 2018 International Consultation on Interstitial Cystitis Japan discussed prevalence, performance and outcome of endoscopy, the role of histopathology, and markers. Methods A panel of experts reviewed the literature regarding Hunner lesion vs. non-Hunner lesion interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome. Results The prevalence of Hunner lesion has been reported to be 5-57%. Older age and smaller anatomic bladder capacity were associated with Hunner lesions. Cystoscopy using local anesthesia is not adequate in diagnosing interstitial cystitis but is needed to rule out confusable diseases. Cystoscopy with hydrodistention and redistention of the bladder is considered standard. A Hunner lesion is visualized as a quite typical inflammatory reaction: a reddened mucosal area with small ...
In a previous study in patients with interstitial cystitis/ painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS), tanezumab has shown to be efficacious in relieving the pain associated with IC/PBS, as well as some effect on reducing urinary urgency. Only one dose was studied, and tanezumab was well tolerated. In this study, the hypothesis being tested is that tanezumab will show efficacy at several doses on reducing pain with sufficient tolerability. Tanezumabs safety will also be assessed at different dose ...
This is a single-center, dose-ranging, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized study including male and female subjects with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) as determined by a physician using the current diagnostic criteria for IC/BPS. A total of 36 subjects will be enrolled at up to five (5) study sites in the U.S. Enrollment is expected to be completed within one year of initiating the study. The study is comprised of two parts. The first part of the study is a dose-ranging, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the safety, tolerability and efficacy of LP-08 at 20 mg and 80 mg doses as compared with placebo. The second part of the study is an Open Label Extension study of the safety, tolerability and efficacy of LP-08 80 mg. Subjects randomized to the placebo control group must have completed the randomized portion study, including the eight week follow-up period, to be eligible for the Open Label Extension ...

Amitriptyline: One randomized, controlled trial reported oral amitriptyline, a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA), to be superior to placebo when titrated from 25 mg daily to 100 mg daily over several weeks as tolerated.12 Amitriptyline showed a clinically significant improvement in pain and urgency intensity when compared with placebo (P , .001). The most common adverse effects were anticholinergic in nature (i.e., sedation, drowsiness, nausea) and occurred in 92% of patients in the amitriptyline group and 21% in the placebo group.12 If a TCA is used for treatment of IC/BPS, it is important to start with a low dose and titrate slowly, and patients should be educated that it may take several weeks to see a benefit.3. Cimetidine: A histamine2-receptor antagonist (H2RA), cimetidine 400 mg twice daily, was found to be statistically significant to placebo in improving total symptoms of pain and nocturia after 3 months in a randomized, controlled trial.13 There were two other observational studies (300 ...
Of 431 IC/BPS participants, 82 (19%) were also diagnosed with endometriosis. These women were significantly younger, had increased prevalence of non-low BC (, 400 cc), and decreased prevalence of HL (p , 0.05). Patients with co-occurring endometriosis also had increased prevalence of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), CPP, fibromyalgia, and vulvodynia (p , 0.05). On multivariate analysis, non-low BC (OR 4.53, CI 1.004-20.42, p = 0.049), CPP (OR 1.84, CI 1.04-3.24, p = 0.04), and fibromyalgia (OR 1.80, CI 1.03-3.14, p , 0.04) were significantly associated with a diagnosis of endometriosis ...

Abstract: Bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (BPS/IC) is associated with symptoms of urgency, frequency, and pain in the bladder or pelvis, in the absence of infection or disease. While manual therapy skills performed by a specialized pelvic floor physiotherapist can improve pain and symptoms by as much as 75-80%,23 treatment strategies need to look beyond, because the persistent nature of this condition suggests there is also dysfunction occurring within the peripheral and central nervous systems. Other symptom-improving treatments include bladder retraining, neurophysiology-based pain education, mindfulness meditation, and a variety of other strategies to help quiet their hypersensitive nervous systems ...

This test looks at a sample of your urine to see if it contains abnormal cells.. The test is used to diagnose cancers of the urinary tract. These include cancers of the kidney, bladder, ureter, and urethra.. A healthcare provider called a pathologist looks at the cells from your urine sample under a microscope. Cancer cells may have a distinct look. In most cases, cells that look like cancer are a sign that you have cancer somewhere in your urinary tract.. This test can also find inflammation or viral infections in the urinary tract. It can give more information on your condition if you have bladder pain syndrome (interstitial cystitis). ...
The annual conference of the International Society for study of Bladder Pain Syndrome, also known as ESSIC, was recently held in New Delhi between 17th -19th Nov, for the first time ever in our country / Asia. This was a proud moment for the medical fraternity and the country on whole to have got an opportunity to host the world leaders on the subject of Bladder Pain Syndrome. There was a time when this disease entity was considered as rare or non-existent in our part of the world this was due to lack of awareness amongst health care providers. This story is not unique for our country, even today this is under-diagnosed and under-reported in many parts of the world and people keep suffering silently from this disease. Bladder pain syndrome is a condition which affects mainly women, even though it is not rare in men.. GIBS successful initiative instantly graduated to a global symposium. SSPL exclusively sponsored the entire conference and its board members from Europe. ESSIC also known as ...

Patients with interstitial cystitis experience an unpleasant sensation (pain, pressure, discomfort) perceived to be related to the urinary bladder that lasts longer than six weeks in the absence of infection or other identifiable causes. The symptoms can vary greatly between individuals and even for the same person throughout the month, including urinary frequency, urgency, nocturia, pressure and/or pelvic pain. People with severe cases of IC/BPS may urinate as many as 60 times a day.. Physicians may refer to IC with a variety of names, including: bladder pain syndrome (Europe), hypersensitive bladder syndrome (Japan), urologic chronic pelvic pain syndrome (research studies) or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). In the United States, it is commonly referred to as IC/BPS.. Pain levels can range from mild tenderness to intense, agonizing pain. Pain typically worsens as the bladder fills with urine and is then relieved after urination. Pain may also radiate to the lower back, upper legs, vulva ...

There also appears to be a connection between IC and other syndromes such as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and vulvodynia and dyspareunia (pain on intercourse).All may have a connection between what has been called Central Sensitivity Syndrome (CSS).. Patients with CSS become sensitised to things that are processed by the central nervous system: lights, odours, smell, touch and pressure on the body. This explains the connection between the above conditions and also the following: migraines, restless legs syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity, temperomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) and dysmenorrhoea (painful periods). Some patients have more than one condition, and this helps make sense of the connection.. It appears irritable bowel syndrome, interstitial cystitis and reproductive and pelvic pain may have a connection through nerve pathways in the pelvis. Researchers have demonstrated a cross-sensitisation between nerves in the bladder, bowel and ...

The Interstitial Cystitis Clinical Research Network (ICCRN) is a product of two NIDDK programs: the Interstitial Cystitis Database (ICDB) Study and the Interstitial Cystitis Clinical Trials Group (ICCTG). Established in 1991, the ICDB was a 5-year prospective cohort study of more than 600 men and women with symptoms of urinary urgency, frequency, and pelvic pain. The study described the longitudinal changes of urinary symptoms, the impact of IC on quality of life, treatment patterns, and the relationship between bladder biopsy findings and patient symptoms. The ICCTG was established in 1996 as a follow-up to the ICDB study. The clinical trials group developed two randomized, controlled clinical trials of promising therapies, one using oral therapies-pentosan polysulfate sodium (Elmiron) and hydroxyzine hydrochloride (Atarax)-and the other administering intravesical treatment using Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG). BCG is a vaccine for tuberculosis that stimulates the immune system and may have an ...

In sharp contrast to the American Urological Associations Step One treatment recommendations, the European approach does not support key self-help interventions. Their quick answer to IC symptoms is to prescribe a medication and/or suggest removing the bladder.Research studies have proven that diet modification plays an indispensable role in reducing IC symptoms and in increasing the quality of life of chronically ill patients. Yet few European doctors advise patients to explore diet modification and better nutritional practices.Similarly, periods of high stress have been shown to increase the incidence of IC flares. The AUA guidelines strongly encourage that patients get skill training in stress and anxiety management. The European urology community rarely asks about stress levels.Studies have also shown that urology patients who lack support, especially from family members, have a poorer long-term outcome. The AUA Step One recommendations strongly encourage patient support (i.e. ...
Many women suffer from pelvic pain and dont understand why they hurt and how to cure their pain. The most common causes of pelvic pain include endometriosis, vaginal atrophy (lack of estrogen stimulation to the vaginal tissues), scarring related to previous vaginal surgery, bladder pain syndromes (i.e. Interstitial Cystitis), and spasm of the pelvic floor muscles. Spasms of the pelvic floor are often a result of pain in the pelvis for other reasons. For example, a woman may have vaginal atrophy which causes discomfort, and as a result, the muscle tone in her pelvis increases, and this chronic tension results in further pain.. We offer a careful evaluation of possible causes for your pain and offer many different treatment options. Schedule a consultation to begin your healing.. ...
Doxepin has been used as an oral antidepressant since the 1980s. In the United States, the drug was originally marketed as Sinequan, but it has since gone to generic. Topical doxepin was approved for the treatment of skin conditions in April 1994 under the trade name Zonalon and has also gone to generic. In March 2010, the FDA approved the use of doxepin for the treatment of insomnia under the name Silenor.. The latest research on doxepin highlights ways for the drug to be used to treat an even wider range of conditions. For instance, doxepin can provide effective treatment for symptoms of physical and mental fatigue in patients with Parkinsons Disease.9 It may also reduce pain in patients with bladder pain syndrome and interstitial cystitis.10 Researchers have also recently developed a doxepin-based mouth rinse for patients with head and neck cancer. When these patients receive radiation therapy, they often develop adverse side effects such as oral mucositis, which can interrupt the radiation ...
Surfactant metabolism dysfunction is a condition where pulmonary surfactant is insufficient for adequate respiration. Most disease-causing mutations in SFTPB result in a complete lack of mature SP-B protein 265120. Lung disease is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner, requiring mutations in both alleles. Surfactant produced by infants with SP-B deficiency is abnormal in composition and does not function normally in lowering surface tension. Familial cases of SP-C dysfunction 610913 are inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern, although the onset and severity of lung disease are highly variable, even within the same family. Mutations in ABCA3 appear to be the most common cause of genetic surfactant dysfunction in humans. The mutations result in a loss of or reduced function of the ABCA3 protein, and are inherited in an autosomal recessive manner 610921. Congenital hypothyroidism Infant respiratory distress syndrome Interstitial lung disease Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn ...
Let me talk a little bit about cure. Cure implies that you have a problem that a treatment simply eradicates. I do not think that the successful resolution of chronic pelvic pain syndromes means that they can never flare up. There was a time when sitting when I was out to dinner or at movie was agonizing, and driving my car even a little way, required that I sit inclined on one buttock. With gratitude, I sit here comfortably writing this letter without any pain. I do not however describe myself as being cured. I do relaxation every day and do my best to live a life in which I am not swept up in anxiety and a type A lifestyle. I believe that if I stopped doing relaxation, and went back to an unconscious, ˜burning the candle at both ends lifestyle, which is my predilection, my pain would probably return. If I did have a flare-up, however, I would not consider it a bad thing or a failure but simply a wake up call to do what I needed to do to return to balance without symptoms ...

Urinary urgency is a sudden, compelling urge to urinate. It is often, though not necessarily, associated with urinary incontinence, polyuria, nocturia, and interstitial cystitis. It tends to increase with age. When uncontrollable, it causes urge incontinence. Urinary urgency often occurs as a result of irritation and/or inflammation of the bladder wall (urothelium). In interstitial cystitis, urinary frequency and urgency are the hallmark symptoms, in addition to nocturia and dyspareunia. In many cases, however, these symptoms are often exacerbated by the consumption of certain foods and/or beverages such as caffeine, particularly coffee, regular tea, green tea, soda, diet soda and fruit juice. Cranberry juice, for example, often causes extreme urgency in patients. Behavioral techniques Anticholinergic drugs Katharine K. ODell & Sarah McGee.

Fibromyalgia, IBS, unrelenting limb pain, chronic penile pain, pelvic floor syndrome, interstitial cystitis, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy are central pain syndromes (CPS). All of them are conditions sufferers are told they must live with and hopefully control with medication.. Central pain syndrome is caused by damage or malfunction in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). This is the patient that has unrelenting pain in, lets say, their leg that wont go away and all testing is normal. Instead of looking to the central nervous system for the cause the practitioners then attempt to treat the peripheral location of the pain or dysfunction. For example, if the urinary bladder hurts (as in interstitial cystitis) practitioners are trained to first look at the bladder itself. MRIs, CAT scans, etc. Then they would perform a urinalysis and blood panel to look for bacteria. If your penis hurts the PCP will look at it and do testing to determine if you have a sexually transmitted ...
October 2011. Science and clinical experience have shown that low intensity lasers, leds and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy can significantly improve quality of life and alleviate pain even in many chronic conditions. What would be the health and financial benefits for all Americans if these methods were on the front lines?. Interstitial Cystitis, Fibromyalgia, Asthma, Chronic Fatigue - Case Study. Karen was a 56 year old female diagnosed with interstitial cystitis and fibromyalgia in 1996. Her chief complaints were constant bladder pressure / discomfort with urgency and urinary frequency, often requiring a restroom visit every half hour or less. To address these concerns, laser needle therapy was administered transcutaneously over the bladder. Her pre-treatment pain score of 4 was reduced to 1 immediately following laser needle therapy.. She reported significant improvements in bladder comfort overall with less pain, pressure and spasming and increasing freedom from the need to urinate ...
