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.

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...

To evaluate the effect of intravesical hyaluronic acid (HA) treatment on inflammatory cells and the severity of inflammation in an interstitial cystitis rat model created with hydrogen chloride (HCL) ...
Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome is characterized by bladder inflammation without a bacterial infection. Although viral infection is a potential etiologic cause, few studies are reported.
Electron microscopy (EM) characteristics of the urothelium in interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) and their association with clinical condition are unclear.
The objective of this study was to compare women with a known diagnosis of interstitial cystitis (IC) to a population that might be at risk for the diagnosis of IC, women with diagnoses of both chroni...
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.
Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.
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.
