A re-appraisal of treatment in chronic bacterial prostatitis.

Abstract

The pH of normal human expressed prostatic secretion in 136 samples from 93 men was 7.28 +/- 0.04. In 41 samples from 14 patients with documented chronic bacterial prostatitis the alkalinity of prostatic fluid was increased 10-fold (1 pH unit) and was 8.32 +/- 0.07. We believe these studies account for the failure of trimethoprim to eradicate human… (More)
