Inflammatory reaction found in prostate‐specific material – method standardization and proposed optimal cut‐off points
Combining results of analysis of the different inflammatory markers from available prostate‐specific materials allows us to differentiate better between inflammatory and non‐inflammatory forms of prostate diseases and hence to choose more precise treatment strategies. Expand

Increase of bacterial vaginosis-type microbiota and coliforms are the most typical findings in men while the adverse effect of male genital tract bacteria on in vitro fertilization and pregnancy outcome has also been indicated. Expand
Male accessory gland infection frequency in infertile patients with chronic microbial prostatitis and irritable bowel syndrome: transrectal ultrasound examination helps to understand the links.
The presence of MAGI in patients with chronic bacterial prostatitis plus irritable bowel syndrome was associated with a significantly lower sperm concentration, total number, and forward motility, and with a higher seminal leukocyte concentration compared with patients with CBP alone and MAGI.

High Frequency of Chronic Bacterial and Non-Inflammatory Prostatitis in Infertile Patients with Prostatitis Syndrome Plus Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Prostatitis syndromes and IBS are frequently associated in patients with PS- or IBS-related symptoms and these patients have an increased prevalence of chronic bacterial and non-inflammatory prostatitis. Expand
The role of Chlamydia trachomatis in prostatitis syndrome--our experience in diagnosis and treatment.
Five previously published clinical studies on the efficacy and tolerability of various treatment schemes for chronic chlamydial prostatitis, conducted from the beginning of 1999 until the end of 2003 are summarized. Expand
Changing concepts on prostatitis
The impact of prostatitis on patients is considered, new insights into the molecular events that may be implicated in its pathogenesis, suggest that more rational treatment options could well be developed, but throughout, there is the recognition that prost atitis still remains an enigma. Expand
Acute bacterial prostatitis: two different sub-categories according to a previous manipulation of the lower urinary tract
The patients with ABP secondary to manipulation are older, have a higher risk of prostate abscess and higher frequency of multiple infections and also infections by pathogens other than Escherichia coli, it would be advisable to subdivide category I within the classification of prostatitis. Expand
The role of quinolones in the treatment of chronic bacterial prostatitis
The results are promising, but further investigations, especially controlled studies, are needed in order to determine the role of the newer quinolones in the treatment of chronic bacterial prostatitis. Expand
Urinary infection in the 1990's: The state of the art
There is a particular need for advances in rapid tests for bacteriuria (to distinguish between symptomatic patients who are infected and those who are not) and for the determination of antibiotic sensitivity of infecting organisms. Expand
Acute and chronic prostatitis.
In summary, prostatitis is a complex syndrome that spans a spectrum from acute prostatitis with a straightforward presentation to CP-CPPS with a complex array of symptoms. The identification ofExpand
