The 2009 American Urological Association Meeting, held in Chicago in April, presented 30 new studies on Interstitial Cystitis. Some of these studies include treatment approaches and research that may possibly bring forth new drugs to treat the illness. One of the surprising announcements at the meeting was that Interstitial Cystitis now affects approximately 3 – 8 million American women (3% – 6% of U.S. population).
Here are links to all of the studies you can read about further.
