Introduction and hypothesisRecent studies applying molecular techniques have demonstrated the presence of a urinary microbiota not detected by standard microbiological techniques. These have been found in the urine of healthy individuals and in those suffering from clinical symptoms. The present article reviews the findings of these studies to date, describing the molecular techniques, and specifically outlining any differences in microbiomes in relation to urogynecological disease.

The Urinary Tract Microbiome in Health and Disease.
TLDR
There is a microbiome associated with the healthy urinary tract that can change in urologic disorders and probiotics, prebiotics, and diet modifications appear to represent an opportunity to regulate the urinary microbiome. Expand
The Role of Urinary Microbiota in Lower Urinary Tract Dysfunction: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
This systematic review summarizing recent data on the role of urinary microbiota in lower urinary tract (LUT) dysfunction supports urinary dysbiosis as a possible cause of different functional LUT disorders. Expand
The urinary microbiota of men and women and its changes in women during bacterial vaginosis and antibiotic treatment
TLDR
The high abundance of BV related species in the urine of both men and women suggests that urine may act as a reservoir of pathogens and contribute to recurrence. Expand
Synchronous genitourinary lichen sclerosus signals a distinct urinary microbiome profile in men with urethral stricture disease
TLDR
Men with LS-USD may have a unique microbiologic richness, specifically inclusive of Bacillales , Bacteroidales and Pasteurellales enriched urine compared to those with non-LS USD. Expand
The Urothelium, the urinary microbioma and men LUTS: a systematic review.
TLDR
The urothelium and the urinary microbiota are still poorly studied in men with LUTS and their possible role as a new therapeutic target is still an open debate. Expand
Pre- and postmenopausal women have different core urinary microbiota
TLDR
Urine from premenopausal mostly presented with Lactobacillus dominated urotypes, whereas urine from postmenopausal women presented a more diverse urinary microbiota with higher abundance of the genera Gardnerella and Prevotella. Expand
Co-culture of Methanobrevibacter smithii with enterobacteria during urinary infection
TLDR
The results show that M. smithii is part of the urinary microbiota of some individuals and could play a role in community-acquired UTI in association with enteric bacteria. Expand
Characterization of the urinary microbiota of elderly women and the effects of type 2 diabetes and urinary tract infections on the microbiota
TLDR
The urinary microbiota of women is affected by ageing, type 2 diabetes mellitus and asymtomatic bacteriuria, and higher levels of Lactobacillus in the elderly were associated with diabetes, and lower levels of Peptoniphilus and Dialister were correlated with asymptomatic bacteriaiuria. Expand
Methodology for a vaginal and urinary microbiome study in women with mixed urinary incontinence
TLDR
The rigorous methodology developed for a novel urogenital microbiome study in women with MUI is described, and the composition of bacterial communities will be determined by dual amplicon sequencing of variable regions 1–3 and 4–6 from vaginal and urine specimens to compare the microbiome of patients with controls. Expand
The etiology and management of recurrent urinary tract infections in postmenopausal women
  • C. Jung, L. Brubaker
  • Medicine
  • Climacteric : the journal of the International Menopause Society
  • 2019
TLDR
In postmenopausal women with frequent UTI, the diagnosis of acute UTI should be made using a combination of the symptom assessment and urine diagnostic studies, and the choice of UTI antibiotic should include consideration of efficacy, collateral effects, and side-effects. Expand

The Female Urinary Microbiome: a Comparison of Women with and without Urgency Urinary Incontinence
TLDR
This study compared the urinary microbiomes of women affected by UUI to those of a comparison group without UUI, using both high-throughput sequencing and extended culture techniques, and identified statistically significant differences in the frequency and abundance of bacteria present. Expand
The microbiome of the urinary tract—a role beyond infection
TLDR
Urologists will need to consider possible influences of the microbiome in diagnosis and treatment of certain urological conditions, and new insights might provide an opportunity to predict the risk of developing certain urologogical diseases and could enable the development of innovative therapeutic strategies. Expand
Alterations of microbiota in urine from women with interstitial cystitis
TLDR
This study demonstrates that high throughput sequencing analysis of urine microbiota in IC patients is a powerful tool towards a better understanding of this enigmatic disease. Expand
The female urinary microbiome in urgency urinary incontinence.
TLDR
DNA sequencing confirmed urinary bacterial DNA in many women with urgency urinary incontinence who had no signs of infection, and sequence status was associated with baseline urgency urinaryincontinence episodes, treatment response, and posttreatment urinary tract infection risk. Expand
The human urinary microbiome; bacterial DNA in voided urine of asymptomatic adults
TLDR
It is concluded that a “core” urinary microbiome could potentially exist, when samples are grouped by age with fluctuation in abundance between age groups, and conventional microbiological methods are inadequate to fully identify around two-thirds of the bacteria identified in this study. Expand
The new world of the urinary microbiota in women.
TLDR
The inadequacies of the current tools for urinary bacterial assessment are highlighted, the new assessment tools are described, the current interpretation of the resulting data is explained, and potential clinical uses and relevance are proposed. Expand
The rationale for probiotics in female urogenital healthcare.
TLDR
This review provides a rationale for the use of probiotic strains that fulfill the United Nations/World Health Organization Guidelines for Probiotics in being fully characterized and clinically documented through scientific investigations describing known or presumed mechanisms of action. Expand
Assessing diversity of the female urine microbiota by high throughput sequencing of 16S rDNA amplicons
TLDR
Normal female urine displays a noticeable and variable bacterial 16S rDNA sequence richness, which includes fastidious and anaerobic bacteria previously shown to be associated with female urogenital pathology. Expand
Evidence of Uncultivated Bacteria in the Adult Female Bladder
TLDR
Bacteria that are not or cannot be routinely cultivated (hereinafter called uncultivated bacteria) were common in voided urine, urine collected by transurethral catheter (TUC), and urine collection by suprapubic aspirate (SPA), regardless of whether the subjects had urinary symptoms. Expand
Spectrum of Bacterial Colonization Associated with Urothelial Cells from Patients with Chronic Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms
TLDR
Comparing routine urine cultures of planktonic bacteria with cultures of shed urothelial cells concentrated in centrifuged urinary sediments revealed large numbers of bacteria undetected by routine cultures, which explains how routine cultures might fail to detect them. Expand
