Prostatitis has a number of categories: acute and chronic bacterial prostatitis, chronic nonbacterial prostatitis
, inflammatory and noninflammatory prostatodynia (prostate pain), and asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis.
Sickness impact of chronic nonbacterial prostatitis
and its correlates.
Evidence for a mechanistic association between nonbacterial prostatitis
and levels of urate and creatinine in expressed prostatic secretion.
Forty-two men (mean age, 63 years) who had lower urinary tract symptoms, an elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level, a negative prostate biopsy for cancer, and clinically confirmed chronic nonbacterial prostatitis
, with or without benign prostatic hyperplasia, were randomly assigned to receive 1500 mg per day of dried cranberry powder (Vaccinium macrocarpon) or no cranberry treatment for six months.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of cranberry (Vaccinium macrocarpon) powder in men at risk of prostate disease with LUTS, elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA), negative prostate biopsy and clinically confirmed chronic nonbacterial prostatitis
The nearly 95% of these patients who fail antibiotic therapy, however, are thought to have nonbacterial prostatitis
, which is commonly viewed as more difficult to diagnose and treat.
Those with nonbacterial prostatitis
have evidence of inflammation of the prostate but no sign of bacterial infection.
Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that it was approved to receive a grant in the amount of $244,000 for TRT's investment in unprecedented nonbacterial prostatitis
and cancer therapeutic discovery projects involving TRT's SoftWave[TM] technology.
A randomized, placebo controlled, multicenter study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of rofecoxib in the treatment of chronic nonbacterial prostatitis
This approach is suggested in patients with chronic nonbacterial prostatitis
and in asymptomatic men.
Unlike acute prostatitis, chronic prostatitis, nonbacterial prostatitis
, and prostatodynia can be very difficult to treat.
The causes of nonbacterial prostatitis
are unknown, but the inflammation may be related to organisms other than bacteria (vi).
