DMSO Efficacy in IC/PBS Patients During and After Treatment
The purpose of this study is to examine the efficacy of dimethylsulphoxide (DMSO) cocktail in patients with interstitial cystitis during the treatment period (12 weeks) and after it (at 6 weeks, 3, 6 and 12 month).
The modern treatment of IC is a multi-modal treatment which includes behavioural treatment, physiotherapy of the pelvic floor musculature, oral medication (e.g. Amitryptiline) and intra-vesical instillation (e.g. DMSO, steroids, heparin). These treatments were found to be effective in a number of studies and are approved by the FDA. However, the optimal duration of intra-vesical instilation is not known.
All patients with IC (according to the international continence society criteria) will receive 12 weekly intra-vesical instillation of DMSO. All patients will fill an O'leary-Sant questionaire and a urination diary before treatment, after 3, 6, 9 and 12 treatments and at 6 weeks, 3, 6 and 12 month after the end to the treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A condition with recurring discomfort or pain in the URINARY BLADDER and the surrounding pelvic region without an identifiable disease. Severity of pain in interstitial cystitis varies greatly and often is accompanied by increased urination frequency and urgency.
Inflammation of the URINARY BLADDER, either from bacterial or non-bacterial causes. Cystitis is usually associated with painful urination (dysuria), increased frequency, urgency, and suprapubic pain.
Inflammation of the interstitial tissue of the kidney. This term is generally used for primary inflammation of KIDNEY TUBULES and/or surrounding interstitium. For primary inflammation of glomerular interstitium, see GLOMERULONEPHRITIS. Infiltration of the inflammatory cells into the interstitial compartment results in EDEMA, increased spaces between the tubules, and tubular renal dysfunction.
Steroid-producing cells in the interstitial tissue of the TESTIS. They are under the regulation of PITUITARY HORMONES; LUTEINIZING HORMONE; or interstitial cell-stimulating hormone. TESTOSTERONE is the major androgen (ANDROGENS) produced.
A group of interstitial lung diseases with no known etiology. There are several entities with varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis. They are classified by their distinct clinical-radiological-pathological features and prognosis. They include IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS; CRYPTOGENIC ORGANIZING PNEUMONIA; and others.

A new device for interstitial cystitis is compared to inactive control to determine if it is safe and effective. The study lasts approximately 7 weeks with a 19-week follow-up period.
Interstitial cystitis (also called painful bladder syndrome, or chronic pelvic pain syndrome) is a common condition with no known cure. It is estimated that every 15 seconds, a person in t...
