Tadalafil is sufficiently effective for severe chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia.

To investigate the efficacy of tadalafil for patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

Tadalafil 5 mg was given each morning for 12 weeks to patients diagnosed as having either moderate or severe lower urinary tract symptoms.

Chronic prostatic infection: Microbiological findings in two Mediterranean populations.

Despite accumulated knowledge, several microbiological aspects of chronic bacterial prostatitis (CBP) remain uncertain. The aim of our study was to determine microbiological characteristics on our CBP population.

The Use of a Combination of Vaccinium Macracarpon, Lycium barbarum L. and Probiotics (Bifiprost®) for the Prevention of Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis: A Double-Blind Randomized Study.

To evaluate the efficacy of Bifiprost® + Serenoa Repens 320 mg versus Serenoa Repens 320 mg alone for the prevention of chronic bacterial prostatitis (CBP) due to enterobacteriaceae.

Between September 2016 and September 2018, 120 patients with CBP at the National Institutes of Health (NIH type II) with recurrent infections due to enterobacteriaceae (Escherichia Coli and Enterococcus faecalis) were enrolled and randomized into 2 groups each to receive Bifiprost® + Serenoa Repens 320 mg (Group A) or Serenoa Repens 320 mg alone (Group B) daily for 24 weeks (after receiving a proper antibiotic treatment with subsequent culture negativization).

Increased risk of prostatitis in male patients with depression.

Objectives: To investigate whether male patients with depression are at an increased risk of prostatitis. Methods: We used a universal insurance claims database in Taiwan from 2000 to 2010 to identify patients with newly diagnosed depression (n = 13,019) (depression cohort) and those without depression (n = 53,026) (comparison cohort).

Evaluation of influence of the UPOINT-guided multimodal therapy in men with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome on dynamic values NIH-CPSI: a prospective, controlled, comparative study.

The aim of this work was to evaluate the influence of UPOINT-guided (Urinary, Psychosocial, Organ-specific, Infection, Neurologic/systemic, Tenderness of skeletal muscles) multimodal therapy in patients with chronic prostatitis (CP)/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) on the dynamic values of the National Institutes of Health Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (NIH-CPSI) score.


Previous meta-analyses have estimated summary positive associations between clinical prostatitis and prostate cancer. However, none have accounted for detection bias, the possibility for increased prostate cancer screening and detection in men with clinical prostatitis, in their pooled estimates.

Could pollen extract in association with vitamins be favorable in the reduction of chronic prostatic inflammation? A case-series analysis.

The aim of the present case-series analysis was to assess the safety and efficacy of pollen extract in association with vitamins in order to reduce the chronic prostatic inflammation in patients with class IV chronic prostatitis (CP).

The Lifetime Risk and Prognosis of Chronic Prostatitis/Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome in the Middle-Aged Chinese Males.

Knowledge is limited about the lifetime risk of chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) occurrence in Chinese middle-aged males and the prognosis of CPPS patients with and without treatment. Noninstitutionalized Chinese males aged 40 to 81 years were enrolled in this study from a total of 76 local communities across 30 provinces of China.

Chronic prostatitis/pelvic pain syndrome: MRI findings and clinical correlations.

We aimed to evaluate whether pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) could play a role in better assessing chronic pelvic pain syndrome. We evaluated 44 male patients (median 41 aged) with a clinical history of painful pelvic symptoms, lasting for at least three of the previous 6 months, associated with urinary, anorectal and sexual disorders in the absence of bacterial prostate infection.

Prostatic calcifications are associated with a more severe symptom burden in men with type II chronic bacterial prostatitis.

Although prostatic calculi/calcifications are encountered frequently in the urological practice, little is known about the incidence of such lesions, their mechanism of formation, their relationship to other prostate conditions and their clinical significance.
