Choreito, a Kampo medicine attenuates detrusor overactivity and bladder pain symptoms in rat tranilast-induced interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome-like model.


Interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) is a chronic inflammatory condition of the bladder. However, there are only a few medicines that are of pharmaceutical grade and reliably effective for IC/BPS symptoms. Choreito (CRT) is a pharmaceutical-grade Kampo medicine and has been widely prescribed for patients of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and BPS in Japan. In this study, we exploratory investigated the effects of CRT on the IC/BPS-like symptoms induced by tranilast.
