Interstitial Cystitis Understanding
Interstitial Cystitis (IC): Overview
Interstitial cystitis (IC)/bladder pain syndrome (BPS) is a chronic bladder health issue. It is a feeling of pain and pressure in the bladder area. Along with this pain are lower urinary tract symptoms which have lasted for more than 6 weeks, without having an infection or other clear causes.
Currently there are two recognized subtypes of Interstitial cystitis: non-ulcerative and ulcerative.
- Non-ulcerative: 90% of IC patients have the non-ulcerative form of IC. Non-ulcerative Interstitial cystitis presents with pinpoint hemorrhages, also known as glomerulations, in the bladder wall. However, these are not specific for IC and any inflammation of the bladder can give that appearance.
- Ulcerative: 5 to 10% of IC patients have the ulcerative form of IC. These patients usually have Hunner's ulcers or patches, which are red, bleeding areas on the bladder wall.
People with interstitial cystitis (IC) have repeat discomfort, pressure, tenderness or pain in the bladder, lower abdomen, and pelvic area. Symptoms vary from person to person, may be mild or severe, and can even change in each person as time goes on. Symptoms may include a combination of these symptoms:
- Urgency: With interstitial cystitis, the person may feel pain or burning along with an urgent need to urinate before the bladder has had time to fill.
- Frequency: Some people with IC feel a strong, painful urge to urinate many times a day.
- Pain: Pain from pelvic floor muscle spasm may get worse during sex.
There's no test for interstitial cystitis. Both men and women would first need to rule out urinary tract infections, bladder cancer, sexually transmitted diseases, and kidney stones. In women, endometriosis is another possibility. For men, interstitial cystitis can be mistaken for an inflamed prostate or chronic pelvic pain syndrome.
These tests can rule out other conditions:
- Urinalysis and urine culture
- Postvoid residual urine volume
- Bladder and urethra biopsy
- Bladder stretching
- Prostate fluid culture
There is no single treatment for interstitial cystitis (IC) that works for everyone. Doctors aim current treatments at relieving symptoms in each person on an individual basis. A health care professional will work with the patients to find a treatment plan that meets their needs. The plan may include:
- lifestyle changes
- bladder training
- physical therapy
- bladder procedures
Interstitial Cystitis Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Interstitial Cystitis report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.
Interstitial Cystitis Emerging Drugs
- AJOVY (Fremanezumab): Teva Pharmaceutical Industries
AJOVY, a humanized monoclonal antibodythat binds to calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) ligand and blocksits binding to the receptor. Teva is conducting a multicenter, open-label pilot study of the efficacy and safety of fremanezumab for treatment of female patients with Interstitial Cystitis-Bladder Pain Syndrome. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of fremanezumab in reducing pain in patients with interstitial cystitis-bladder pain syndrome (IC-BPS).
- SI-722: Seikagaku Corporation
SI-722 is a novel chemical compound in which a steroid is conjugated with chondroitin sulfate using Seikagaku's proprietary glycosaminoglycan modification technology and drug delivery systems (DDS). SI-722 injected into the bladder is thought to demonstrate long-lasting improvement in the conditions of frequent urination and bladder pain by releasing a steroid with an anti-inflammatory effect. SI-722 has completed a Phase I clinical study in the U.S. In November 2019, it is starting a Phase II/II clinical study. This clinical study will evaluate the drug for safety, tolerability, and pharamcokinetics, and will conduct an exploratory evaluation of its effectiveness.
