Single Dose Monurol for Treatment of Acute Cystitis

2014-08-27 03:19:19 | BioPortfolio


Urinary tract infecton (UTI) is a very common problem in young healthy women, afflicting approximately one-half of women by their late 20's. One of the most common antibiotics used to treat UTIs is Trimethoprim-sulfa (TMP-SMX), usually for total of three days. However, concerns about increased antibiotic resistance have led to increased interest in studying other antibiotics for UTI.

An alternative antibiotic which is also FDA approved for the treatment of UTIs is fosfomycin (Monurol). The effectiveness of fosfomycin in curing UTIs when given as a single dose is not well studied. The purpose of this research study is to determine what the cure rates are with a single dose of fosfomycin versus the more standard 3-day course of TMP-SMX.


Procedures subjects will undergo once they have read and signed the consent are:

Questions about their medical and sexual history and current symptoms of UTI. They will be asked to provide a urine and peri-urethral sample and then are randomly assigned to one of the two treatment groups.They will be given a sheet to record symptoms at home. They will be asked to return to the clinic in 5-8 and 28-30 days after completing antibiotic therapy.Follow-up questions will be asked and urine and peri-urethral will be self collected at each visit.

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.

The presence of bacteria in the urine which is normally bacteria-free. These bacteria are from the URINARY TRACT and are not contaminants of the surrounding tissues. Bacteriuria can be symptomatic or asymptomatic. Significant bacteriuria is an indicator of urinary tract infection.

A surgical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in both sexes, and the genital tract in the male. Common urological problems include urinary obstruction, URINARY INCONTINENCE, infections, and UROGENITAL NEOPLASMS.

A human disease caused by the infection of parasitic worms SCHISTOSOMA HAEMATOBIUM. It is endemic in AFRICA and parts of the MIDDLE EAST. Tissue damages most often occur in the URINARY TRACT, specifically the URINARY BLADDER.
