TY - JOUR. T1 - Increased risk of bladder cancer following diagnosis with bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis. AU - Keller, Joseph. AU - Chiou, Hung Yi. AU - Lin, Herng Ching. PY - 2013/1. Y1 - 2013/1. N2 - Aims Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) is a prevalent disorder that may contribute to bladder cancer (BC). This cohort study set out to investigate the association between IC/BPS and BC by using a population-based dataset. Methods The data for this study were sourced from the Taiwan National Health Insurance program. The case cohort comprised 7,562 patients with IC/BPS, and 22,686 randomly selected subjects were used as a comparison cohort. A Cox proportional hazards regression model (stratified by age group, geographic location, urbanization level, and the index year) was constructed to estimate the risk of subsequent BC following a diagnosis of IC/BPS. We also ran the analysis utilizing an alternative comparison cohort composed of patients with urinary ...

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 ...

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.
As specialists in the treatment of bladder problems, Mr Jeremy Ockrim offers medically advanced treatments, many of which are not widely available in the UK. This means Mr Jeremy Ockrim is able to find effective solutions for patients whose previous treatment may not have been successful.
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 ...

Interstitial Cystitis (Bladder Pain) By Lori Montgomery, MD, CCFP and Magali Robert, MD, FRCSC Introduction Interstitial Cystitis or Painful Bladder Syndrome
Interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome (commonly abbreviated to IC/PBS), is a urinary bladder disease of unknown cause characterised by pain associated with urination (dysuria), urinary frequency (as often as every 10 minutes), urgency, and ...
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 ...

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 ...

Often I have overwhelming feelings of gratitude that my IC is in remission. It is important to also write about the hope that abounds in the IC community in the areas of advocacy, research and diagnostic and treatment protocols that simply did not exist 7 years ago when I stumbled down the black and painful rabbit hole into the world of IC. From the continued efforts of the IC Association and the IC Network to doctors such as Dr. Matt Rosenberg uncovering fast and as close to painless diagnostic tools for diagnosing IC to doctors in the forefront of IC treatments such as histamine blockers and stem cell therapy treatments such as those being utilized by Dr. Elliot Landers there is hope to share with all IC patients. It is so easy to share the truth of living with IC that it causes extreme pain, discomfort and floods an IC patient with feelings of guilt, shame and depression and it would be wrong to cover up these truths, but in the same sense, it would be wrong to only focus on these truths and ...
Interstitial Cystitis (IC) is a condition that causes pain or discomfort in the bladder and the surrounding pelvic region. The symptoms are different for each person and can change on a case to case basis. Pain may worsen as the bladder fills or is emptied. The pain typically can be worse for women, during menstruation, but can also affect women who have had hysterectomies.. Due to the varying nature of symptoms and severity, most researchers in the field of study, believe that interstitial cystitis is several diseases. Scientists have recently started using the term bladder pain syndrome (BPS) or painful bladder syndrome (PBS) to describe painful urinary symptoms that do not meet all of the definitions of interstitial cystitis.. ...
Surgery should be considered only if all available treatments have failed and the pain is disabling. Many approaches and techniques are used, each of which has advantages and complications that should be discussed with a surgeon. A doctor may recommend consulting another surgeon for a second opinion before taking this step. Most surgeons are reluctant to operate because some people still have symptoms after surgery.. People considering surgery should discuss the potential risks and benefits, side effects, and long- and short-term complications with a surgeon, their family, and people who have already had the procedure. Surgery requires anesthesia, hospitalization, and weeks or months of recovery. As the complexity of the procedure increases, so do the chances for complications and failure.. People should check with their doctor to locate a surgeon experienced in performing specific procedures.. Two procedures-fulguration and resection of ulcers-can be done with instruments inserted through the ...

AIMS: To define the pathology of painful bladder syndrome using a morphometric method. METHODS: Bladder biopsy specimens from 31 patients with painful bladder syndrome and 11 controls were stained and examined at x260 magnification with the aid of a 100 square counting grid. Random counts of the different tissues and inflammatory components were made to ascertain whether constant differences occurred that could be used to define the pathology of this uncommon condition. RESULTS: In the lamina propria of painful bladder syndrome specimens, a significant increase was seen in the concentration of lymphocytes, T cells, and blood vessels; a decrease was seen in the number of fibroblasts, and no change was seen in the number of mast cells and macrophages. B cells were sporadic. The basement membrane in these specimens showed significant discontinuity and there was increased collagen deposition in the underlying muscle when compared with controls. CONCLUSION: Painful bladder syndrome exhibits constant ...
