Active Ingredients: Ciprofloxacin
For the diagnosis of prostatic bacterial infection, colony counts in prostatic specimens were required to be at least tenfold greater than those assessed in midstream urine samples.
At the V 6, V 12 and V 18 time points 6, 12 and 18 months after VERAD, respectively, patients were subjected to complete clinical evaluations visits, instrumental analysis, questionnaires. In patients showing symptom relapse during follow-up, microbiological evaluations were repeated.
A mid-therapy compliance assessment of Cipro-750 and Cipro-500 patients consisted of clinical interviews performed by the clinicians at 2 or 3 weeks after V 0, respectively.
Both Cipro-500 and Cipro-750 cohorts were subjected to the same numbers of standard urological visits and contacts with the urologist-in-charge VM.
Microbiological response evaluation The definitions by Naber et al. We followed the recommendation by Naber et al.
Premature ejaculation was evaluated on the basis of self-estimated intravaginal ejaculatory latency time, perceived control, and reported personal and relational distress, in agreement with Hatzimouratidis et al.
The absolute values of prostate-specific antigen PSA were skewed with a right-hand tail.
Non-parametric tests the Mann—Whitney—Wilcoxon test for the comparison of independent groups and the Wilcoxon signed-rank test for matched pairs were used to analyse the differences in PSA values or leukocyte counts. Chi-square analysis was used to evaluate differences in the proportions of patients with pyuria, premature ejaculation, haemospermia or ejaculatory pain.
This analysis was also used to evaluate the differences in microbiological outcomes and baseline patient presentations. Table 1 Comparative in vitro activity of newer fluoroquinolones against common anaerobic pathogens.
