Rapamycin has been reported to inhibit hepatic fibrosis, lung fibrosis, renal fibrosis, and subglottic stenosis. Fibrosis is also involved in urethral stricture. Therefore, we investigated the effect of rapamycin on the inhibition of urethral stricture formation in a rabbit model. First, models of urethral stricture were successfully established by(More)
