Study Seeking Men and Women Who Suffer from Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain
Do you or someone you know suffer from symptoms of Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (“UCPPS”)? As with many chronic pain disorders, UCPPS, which includes both interstitial cystitis (IC) and chronic prostatitis (CP), is poorly understood and treatment is often not helpful. Patients with IC or CP are being recruited for a new study called the “Trans-MAPP Study of Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain: Symptom Patterns Study (SPS).” The goal of this study is to better understand why certain treatments work in some patients, but not others. If you qualify and agree to take part in this study, you may help doctors gain a better understanding of how IC and CP affect individuals’ overall health. To find out more about the Trans-MAPP SPS please contact the participating MAPP Clinical Center nearest you.
