Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Combined with Drug Therapy in Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome - A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Urol J 2019 Apr 20. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

Department of Urology, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Purpose: Chronic prostatitis/ chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a nonspecific pelvic pain in the absence of signs of infection or other obvious local pathology for at least 3 of the last 6 months. The evidence for treatment is limited so the aim of this study is to investigate the effect of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) combined with pharmacotherapy in the treatment of CP/CPPS.

Materials And Methods: In this randomized clinical  trial, 31 patients with CP/CPPS were investigated in two groups: the intervention group (n=16) was treated with a combination of an alfa-blocker, an anti-inflammatory agent, a muscle relaxant and a short course of antibiotic in combination with 4 sessions of focused ESWT (a protocol of 3000 impulses, 0.

Genetic and Environmental Influences on Urinary Conditions in Men: A Classical Twin Study.

Urology 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

University of California, San Diego, San Diego, CA, USA; VA Center of Excellence for Stress and Mental Health, San Diego, CA, USA. Electronic address:

Objective: To evaluate the genetic and environmental relationship among prostatitis and other urological conditions, including benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer (CaP), a classical twin design and biometric modeling was used. While prostatitis - characterized by pain and voiding symptoms, no clear etiology, and functional and quality of life impairments - co-occurs with other urinary conditions, the degree of shared overlapping etiological processes among them remains unclear. We examined the contribution of genetic and environmental factors to these conditions and the etiology of their associations at the level of genetic and environmental influences. Read More

Department of Veterinary Medical Sciences, Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna, Ozzano dell'Emilia (Bo), Italy.

In small animal practice, prostatic diseases are increasingly encountered. All dogs may experience prostatic disease, but particular care should be addressed to breeding dogs, in which prostatic affection may lead to decrease in semen quality and fertility. The most common prostatic disease is the benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) followed by prostatitis, prostatic neoplasia and prostate squamous metaplasia. Read More

Consequences of interleukin 1β-triggered chronic inflammation in the mouse prostate gland: Altered architecture associated with prolonged CD4 infiltration mimics human proliferative inflammatory atrophy.

Prostate 2019 May 22;79(7):732-745. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Department of Biological Sciences, University of Maryland, Baltimore, Maryland.

Background: Elevated expression of the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin 1β (IL-1β) has been observed in expressed prostatic secretions of patients with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and genetic polymorphisms associated with the IL1B gene are linked to increased risk for aggressive prostate cancer.

Methods: To study the role of IL-1β expression in prostate inflammation, we examined IL1B expression in human prostatic proliferative inflammatory atrophy (PIA) lesions and developed a tetracycline-regulated human IL1B transgene in the mouse prostate.

Results: Here, we demonstrate that IL1B expression is a common finding in human PIA lesions, which harbored focal IL1B expression in epithelial and stromal compartments. Read More

A significant proportion of individuals develop chronic, persistent and recurrent genital tract infections with , which has been attributed to the numerous strategies that the bacterium uses to subvert host immune responses. Animal chlamydia models have demonstrated that protective immune response is mediated by CD4 Th1 cytokine responses.

Purpose: Because of the inconsistent symptoms associated with infections, their clinical significances in genitourinary tracts are under debate. Therefore, we evaluated the presence of (UU) and (UP) in urine samples and examined their associations with chronic prostatitis (CP) through a case and control study.

Materials And Methods: We included 696 nonchlamydial nongonococcal (NCNG) urine samples from men; 350 were categorized into non-inflammatory CP, 88 in inflammatory CP, and 258 in non-CP group. Read More

Impact of patient information leaflets on doctor-patient communication in the context of acute conditions: a prospective, controlled, before-after study in two French emergency departments.

BMJ Open 2019 Feb 20;9(2):e024184. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Research Department, Grenoble Alpes University Hospital, Grenoble, France.

Objective: In the context of acute conditions seen in an emergency department, where communication may be difficult, patient information leaflets (PILs) could improve doctor-patient communication (DPC) and may have an impact on other outcomes of the consultation.

Association between child maltreatment and central sensitivity syndromes: a systematic review protocol.

BMJ Open 2019 Feb 19;9(2):e025436. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

School of Nursing, College of Medical and Dental Sciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.

Introduction: A growing body of evidence is identifying the link between a history of child maltreatment and a variety of adverse health outcomes ultimately leading to significant social and healthcare burden. Initial work has identified a potential association between child maltreatment and the development of a selection of somatic and visceral central sensitivity syndromes: fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, temporomandibular joint disorder, chronic lower back pain, chronic neck pain, chronic pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis, vulvodynia, chronic prostatitis, tension-type headache, migraine, myofascial pain syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome and restless legs syndrome.

Methods And Analysis: Primary electronic searches will be performed in the Embase, MEDLINE, PubMed, Scopus, PyscINFO, CINAHL and Cochrane Library databases and a number of Grey Literature sources including child protection and paediatric conference proceedings. Read More

Metagenomic and metatranscriptomic analysis of human prostate microbiota from patients with prostate cancer.

BMC Genomics 2019 Feb 18;20(1):146. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Vancouver Prostate Centre, Vancouver, Canada.

Background: Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common malignant neoplasm among men in many countries. Since most precancerous and cancerous tissues show signs of inflammation, chronic bacterial prostatitis has been hypothesized to be a possible etiology. However, establishing a causal relationship between microbial inflammation and PCa requires a comprehensive analysis of the prostate microbiome. Read More
