Sixteen units of Neurotropin divided in 2 doses were orally administered daily to 49 patients with chronic prostatitis(CP)/chronic pelvic pain syndrome(CPPS)(ⅢA:9 patients,ⅢB:40 patients)who were newly diagnosed at our hospital from December 2007 to July 2009. Outcomes were assessed at 2 weeks and 6 weeks after treatment using NIH-Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index(NIH-CPSI). Neurotropin showed significant improvement in the pain,urinary symptoms and quality of life(QOL)impact domains. Moreover,the total score of the above three domains was also significantly improved. Besides,no adverse effects were observed among the patients treated with Neurotropin,indicating the usefulness of this treatment. This is the first report showing the efficacy of Neurotropin in treating chronic prostatitis.
