Cystistat has proven highly effective for the symptomatic treatment of many forms of cystitis. Like the many patients who have already found relief with Cystistat, you too could find relief from the pain and discomforts associated with this disease.

Cystistat can help you get on with your day—and give you the confidence to return to a normal life.

How Cystistat Works

Cystistat is approved by Health Canada as well as the competent Health Authorities of the European Union, Norway, Switzerland, China and other countries for the temporary replacement of the GAG layer. Cystistat is instilled in a safe and simple procedure directly into the bladder.

By temporarily replacing the GAG layer in a patient's bladder, Cystistat helps to relieve pain and the urgent need to urinate that is a common symptom among patients with interstitial cystitis. Cystistat must be administered by qualified medical personnel, usually urologists. Cystistat is also showing a preventive effect in bacterial cystitis and radiation-induced cystitis.

Cystistat has proven highly effective in these three types of cystitis:

Bladder Pain Syndrome / Interstitial Cystitis

Radiation-induced Cystitis

Bacterial Cystitis

Bladder Pain Syndrome / Interstitial Cystitis

Get on with Life with Cystistat
In a recent study conducted in Europe, over 80% of patients screened by the Comparative Cystometry Test improved their BPS/IC symptoms with Cystistat.

Prescribed in More Than 20 Countries

Considered one of the most successful treatments available for BPS/IC, Cystistat is prescribed in more than 20 countries, including Canada, Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Scandinavia, Spain, Switzerland, U.K., China and others. It has not yet been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Cystistat is patent protected in the USA, Canada and Europe.

Cystistat has helped many patients obtain relief from the symptoms of interstitial, bacterial, and radiation-induced cystitis.

Radiation-induced Cystitis

Cystistat Causes Minimal Side Effects
Preliminary research has shown that Cystistat has benefited patients treated with pelvic radiotherapy. Cystistat has proven effective for a significant percentage of patients in the prevention of RIC.

Cystistat helps to:

  • Protect the bladder
  • Decrease radiation-induced toxicity and risk of infection
  • Improve the overall quality of life for patients

The use of Cystistat immediately prior to radiotherapy has shown a significant protective effect in patients with pelvic cancers. In addition, the side effects of Cystistat are reported to be minimal.

In a recent trial, usual care patients using Cystistat scored 50% lower on radiation toxicity scales than usual care patients not using Cystistat. The Cystistat group also returned to baseline toxicity two weeks sooner.

Bacterial Cystitis

Cystistat: A Highly Effective Alternative
Cystistat has been shown to be a highly effective alternative to antibiotics.

Cystistat has been shown to protect the bladder from bacterial infection.

In a recent study of 40 women with BC, the use of Cystistat led to substantial decreases in the average number of recurrences per year. Prior to Cystistat therapy, patients on average experienced four bladder infections per year. After therapy, patients on average experienced bladder infections nearly once every year and a half.

A study in Spain has shown that Cystistat when used in catheterized patients dramatically reduced the rate of UTI. In 72 comparable patients, those treated with Cystistat were five times less likely to develop bladder infections than their usual care counterparts.
