The effects of DMSO treatment on urothelial/lamina propria activity

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractResearch

Abstract

A common, but not well understood treatment for painful bladder syndrome is the intravesical application of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) to the bladder. Although the treatment times and techniques vary between urologists, one method when performing this treatment is application of a 50% DMSO solution into the bladder for 30 minutes. The intravesical DMSO treatment would most likely act upon the apical cell layers of bladder. This identifies the urothelium and lamina propria (U&LP) as the most likely targets for this treatment.
