MILLAN RODRIGUEZ, F.; ROUSAUD BARON, F.  and  ROUSAUD BARON, A.. Model study of the treatment of recurrent cystitis in women by means of AM3 (Inmunoferon®). Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2003, vol.27, n.3, pp.196-201. ISSN 0210-4806.

OBJECTIVES: The aim is to evaluate the effectiveness of AM3 (Inmunoferon®) in the treatment of the recurrent cystitis in women in order to know the rate of good results, previously to design a clinical trial. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-four women who had been diagnosed of two cystitis episodes in the previous 6 months without cure by antibiotic treatment were admitted to the study. Standard antibiotic treatment and 3 daily grammes of AM3 was given for 9 months. Infection and irritative symptoms during micturition rate were evaluated at the inclusion date and afterwards, at the first, third, sixth and nineth month. RESULTS: Nineteen patients finished the study. The infection rate decreased from 100% at the inclusion date to 26% in the first month and then it became stable about 50%. Irritative symptoms during micturition decreased from 46% at the inclusion date to a rate lower than 10% in the 4 controls running. CONCLUSION: AM3 reduced evident urinary infection in a 50% and irritative symptoms during micturition in a 90%. Control clinical trials are needed to confirm the AM3 effects on this pathology.
