Follow-up examinations covered 91 patients aged from 20 to 60 years with chronic prostatitis (CP) history 1-18 years. The primary examination has found that 79.1% examinees has CP complicated with sexual dysfunction, disturbed spermatogenesis and psychoneurological disorders. In one group of CP patients etiopathogenetic treatment of CP was combined with magneto-laser-electrostimulation of the prostate provided by the unit Andro-Gin. This combined treatment proved more effective as it induced long-term remission (two years and longer) in 60.5% patients. Unsatisfactory results were minimal. Without use of the unit unsatisfactory results were recorded in 35% patients.

Background Recent years, morbidity of chronic prostatis is increasing in Mongolia. Most common cause of the chronic prostatis is Non-Gonococcal Urethritis (NGU) such as chlamydia trachomatis, mycoplasma hominis, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplasma urealyticum and ureaplasma parvum or mixed infections. Purpose The purpose of the study was to research possible relationships between signs or symptoms of the chronic prostatitis and its cause. Method A total of 466 males who have possible signs of chronic prostatitis were enrolled in the study. All patients were checked for urinalysis and expressed prostate secretion (EPS) and Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) of EPS detection for neisser a gonorrhea, chlamydia trachomatis, mycoplasma hominis, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplasma urealyticum and ureaplasma parvum at an outpatient center of andrology office, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Results Two hundred and eighty three of all participants have positive PCR results. Mean age of in our study was 33.1±8 years. U. realyticum was the most common (48.6%), followed by M. hominis and C. trachomatis mixed infection. In Mach, April and August were highest episodes of morbidity were registered 16.2%, 11.69% and 10.71%. Chronic pelvic pain syndrome and lower urinary tract symptoms were the most common complaints of main reason to visit outpatient clinic. Conclusions U. urealyticum was most common infection detected by PCR analyses among men who have chronic prostatitis, who have chronic pelvic pain syndrome. Further research is needed to determine if there are associations between signs or symptoms and cause of the chronic prostatis.

Tesis (Doctor)--Universidad Nacional de Córdoba. Facultad de Ciencias Médicas, 2009 La próstata es el sitio más propenso a desarrollar procesos inflamatorios y alteraciones del crecimiento celular dentro del tracto genital masculino. Las prostatis, sindrome clínico que experimentan los pacientes con inflamación de la próstata, constituyen una importante causa deterioro en la calidad de vida en hombres de todas las edades y un proceso de difícil tratamiento. Estudios recientes han postulado...

A total of 7 healthy volunteers and 31 patients have been examined clinically, by MRI, TRS, and biopsy. In those patients with established carcinoma, a CT examination was also performed. For the MRI study, a superconducting MR 2000 imager (Picker International) operated at 0.15 T was used with multiplanar SE and IR sequnces. SE sequences with long echo times detected prostatitis, adenoma and carcinoma of the prostate with a high degree of sensitivity. However, at present, differentiation between adenoma, prostatis and carcinoma is not possible with sufficient accuracy. In these studies we were unable to establish a correlation between the signal pattern and staging and/or grading of the carcinoma. Reliable diagnosis of a prostate carcinoma still requires a biopsy. Because of the high soft tissue contrast and the possibility of selecting any orientation for the plane under investigation, however, MRI represents an improvement in the preoperative diagnosis of local spread.

Objective To investigate the relationship between asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis (AIP)and serum prostate specific antigen (PSA). Methods Data collection was conducted in the Medical Examination Centre of Fangchenggang First People's Hospital.During the physical examination,trained physi-cians administered a standard questionnaire,basic data including National Institutes of Health Chronic Prostati-tis Symptom Index (NIH-CPSI),demographic information (age,education,occupation,etc),history of dis-ease,and lifestyle risk factors (smoking,alcohol consumption,and physical activity),and health status were collected using a standardized questionnaire.A trained profession conducted the anthtopometric parameters measurements for the participants.8 h-fasting vein blood was drawn and then the biochemical indexes [PSA, triglyceride (TG),high density cholesterol-cholesterol (HDL-C),and fasting blood glucose]were meas-ured.The expressed prostatic secretions (EPS)were collected and then were smeared on a glass slide for counting the mean WBC count of EPS.According to the NIH-CPSI score,and presence of inflammation,the participants were divided into a NIH-IV prostatitis group and a healthy group. Results The mean value of serum PSA in the healthy group and the NIH-IV prostatitis group were 0.91 ng/ml and 1.27 ng/ml,the standard deviation was 0.79 ng/ml,and 1.52 ng/ml,there were statistically significant differences (P <0.001).In NIH-IV prostatitis group,the scores of age,TG,diastolic blood pressure (DBP),systolic blood pressure (SBP),hypertension,education status,physical activity were higher than those in the healthy group. NIH-IV prostatitis (WBC≥3+)group compared to healthy group,along with the elevated PSA the OR value was also increased,the OR value was 1.078,3.589,4.406,respectively.In PSAQ4,with the elevation of in-flammation the OR value also increased.Respectively in age,education status,dyslipidemia,diabetes,high blood pressure

relações estatísticas entre os níveis de PSA e as alterações das vesículas seminais e testículo. CONCLUSÕES: 1- O Hamster Sírio, Mesocricetus auratus, apresenta PSA sérico dosável e seu valor médio para o Hamster jovem é de 0,252ng/mL e no Hamster adulto é de 0,325ng/mL.2. Não foi possível correlacionar os níveis de PSA com as alterações histológicas encontradas nos anexos sexuais do Mesocricetus auratus.BACKGROUND: The objective of this work is to verify total PSA in young and adult Syrian Hamster and demonstrate a possible correlation among those levels and sexual anexes histological changes: prostate, seminal vesicles and testicles. METHODS: On this experimental study ten young Hamsters were used, with ages below seven weeks, and twenty animals with age above one year. PSA dosage and a histological analysis of sexual anexes were performed in both groups in order to get the correlation among the PSA level and histological changes. RESULTS: The average age for young animals (control group was 46.7 days (Std Dev=1.16. In adult animals (experimental group the average age was undetermined, although all groups were above one year old, at the death moment. Average weigh of those young animals, when dead, was 57.0g (Std Dev= 3.5 and adult animals 126.5g (Std Dev=19.3 being acceptable. PSA was dosed in old adult animals plasma and in seven of the youngest ones. PSA was not detected in three animals of young group. Young animals PSA average was 0.252ng/mL (nanogran per mililiter and in adults some presented 0.325ng/mL. Young animals did not present histologic changes. In adult hamsters, fourteen (70.0% of them presented change in their sexual anexes: ten (50.0% PBH (prostate benign hiperplasia, one (5.0% HBP, prostatis and seminal vesicle inflammation, one (5.0% seminal vesicle suppurative inflammation, one (5.0% testicle infarct and prostatitis. There was no statistic relationship between PSA levels and PBH, although those with PBH evidenced PSA higher
