The prophylactic and chemotherapeutic efficacy of PMPC against infections after TUR-P has been investigated. Bacteriological evaluation: PMPC , 200-300 mg/day for 2-12 weeks, was administered to 49 patients, who had over 10(3)CFU/ml of microorganisms after CET or CEC treatment for 3-7 days. The eradication rate of microorganisms was 40.8% after 2 weeks,(More)
