Traditional Chinese herbal medicine retention enema combined with perineal massage (THREM): a promising therapeutic strategy for refractory chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS).

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a debilitating condition characterized by lower urinary tract symptoms and persistent pelvic pain or discomfort lasting for more than three months.

The microbiota of sexual intercourse and its effect on prostatitis.

It is estimated that microorganisms colonize 90% of the body surface. In some tracts, such as the genitourinary tract, the microbiota varies throughout life, influenced by hormonal stimulation and sexual practices.

Trends in experimental autoimmune prostatitis: insights into pathogenesis, therapeutic strategies, and redefinition.

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPSS) is a debilitating condition characterized by prostate inflammation, pain and urinary symptoms. The immune system's response to self-antigens is a contributing factor to CP/CPSS.

Real-World Experience with 177Lu-PSMA-617 Radioligand Therapy After Food and Drug Administration Approval.

We report our initial real-world experience with 177Lu-PSMA-617 radioligand therapy. Methods: We performed a retrospective review of patients treated with 177Lu-PSMA-617. Pretreatment PSMA PET, laboratory findings, overall survival, a fall in prostate-specific antigen by 50% (PSA50), and toxicities were evaluated.

Genetic insights into gut microbiota and risk of prostatitis: a Mendelian randomization study.

The dysbiosis of gut microbiota (GM) is considered a contributing factor to prostatitis, yet the causality remains incompletely understood.

The genome-wide association study (GWAS) data for GM and prostatitis were sourced from MiBioGen and FinnGen R10, respectively.

The diagnostic yield of the Meares & Stamey test can be significantly improved by symptom-based patient selection and the experience of the test performer.

Even if Meares-Stamey 4-glass (M&S) test is regarded a decisive tool for diagnosing prostatitis its use is only rarely performed in everyday clinical practice. Here, we analyze if the diagnostic yield of the M&S test could be improved by a pre-test categorization of patients due to undergo a M&S test.

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy of the perineum for male patients with chronic pelvic pain syndrome: a pilot study.

Chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) is a complex condition that is often difficult to treat and may sometimes require a multidisciplinary team. Among the wide array of treatment options is extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT).

Association between chronic prostatitis and the subsequent benign prostatic hyperplasia: a population-based national cohort study.

To explore the association between chronic prostatitis (CP) and the subsequent development of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Data analyzed were medical claims of Taiwan's National Health Insurance program.

Factors related to acupuncture response in patients with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome: secondary analysis of a randomized controlled trial.

Acupuncture has been recommended as an effective therapy to improve symptoms of chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS). We conducted this secondary analysis to explore the factors that may influence the response of patients with CP/CPPS to acupuncture.

Preliminary study of the effect of gut microbiota on the development of prostatitis.

Dysbacteriosis of intestinal tract may cause systemic inflammation, making distant anatomical locations more susceptible to illness. Recent research has demonstrated that the microbiome can affect both prostatitis and the inflammation of the prostate that is linked to prostate cancer.
