About IC/BPS
A life-altering condition in need of a new pain management option

IC/BPS is a chronic condition characterized by urinary urgency, increased frequency, nocturia, bladder pressure and severe pelvic pain. As many as 12 million people in the U.S. suffer from IC/BPS.1

The morbidity of IC/BPS may be substantial and can often impact quality of life for IC/BPS patients. IC/BPS can also result in a number of complications, including:

Reduced bladder capacity

Stiffening of the bladder wall causes the bladder to hold less urine
Frequent urination and pain

The urinary urgency and discomfort associated with IC/BPS often interferes with social activities, work and other endeavors of daily life
Sexual intimacy problems
Frequent urination and pain may strain personal relationships; sexual intimacy may suffer
Emotional troubles
Chronic pain and interrupted sleep may contribute to emotional stress, which may trigger depression in some patients
