Fosfomycin for Bacterial Prostatitis: A Review.

There has been growing interest in fosfomycin for the treatment of bacterial prostatitis due to evidence suggesting it achieves adequate prostatic concentrations for antimicrobial effect, its activity against resistant microorganisms, and its low-toxicity profile.

Bladder sensation evaluation of a carrageenan-induced chronic prostatitis model using a direct measurement of the bladder mechanosensitive single-unit afferent nerve activity.

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) causes long-standing pain and/or storage symptoms. This study aimed to evaluate the likelihood of deterioration of bladder sensation in a carrageenan-induced CP/CPPS model by direct measurement of the bladder mechanosensitive single-unit afferent nerve activity.

Comparison of cernitin pollen extract vs tadalafil therapy for refractory chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome: A randomized, prospective study.

To compare the efficacy of cernitin pollen extract (cernitin) or tadalafil for treating persistent chronic pelvic pain despite α1-blocker monotherapy in men with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS).

[Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome].

Chronic prostatitis (CP, or chronic pelvic pain syndrome, CPPS) is defined as chronic pain or discomfort in the pelvic region for at least 3 of the past 6 months, often accompanied by lower urinary tract symptoms, psychosocial impairments and sexual dysfunction.

Fungal prostatitis due to endemic mycoses and Cryptococcus: A multicenter case series.

Fungal prostatitis is exceedingly rare with mostly case reports.

Electronic medical records at three medical centers were searched for cases of fungal prostatitis due to endemic mycoses and Cryptococcus over the preceding 10 years.

Neuronal/astrocytic expression of chemokine (C-C motif) Ligand 2 is associated with monocyte/macrophage recruitment in male chronic pelvic pain.

Chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS), is a multi-symptom syndrome with unknown etiology. The experimental autoimmune prostatitis (EAP) mouse model of CPPS is associated with immune cell infiltration into the prostate, expression of C-C Chemokine ligand 2 (CCL2) and neuroinflammation in the spinal cord.

Is there a correlation between the aggressiveness of chronic asymptomatic prostatitis NIH category IV and the Gleason score in patients with prostate cancer?

We evaluated the correlation between the International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) grades and the aggressiveness grades of prostate inflammation in newly diagnosed prostate cancer patients with chronic asymptomatic prostatitis National Institiutes of Health (NIH) category IV (CAPNIHIV).

Management of Chronic Bacterial Prostatitis.

We conducted a review of the literature describing the most up-to-date diagnosis and treatment options of chronic bacterial prostatitis.

Recurrence after oral antimicrobial therapy is common, due in part to the rising rates of antimicrobial resistance and inability to completely clear the offending bacteria from the prostate following prostatitis.

Phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor therapy provides sustained relief of symptoms among patients with chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome type III (CP/CPPS) is associated with pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction and irritative voiding. Sustained symptom relief has proven difficult with alpha blockers, antibiotics, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Pharmacological Interventions for Bacterial Prostatitis.

Prostatitis is a common urinary tract condition but bring innumerable trouble to clinicians in treatment, as well as great financial burden to patients and the society. Bacterial prostatitis (acute bacterial prostatitis plus chronic bacterial prostatitis) accounting for approximately 20% among all prostatitis have made the urological clinics complain about the genital and urinary systems all over the world.
