Hemorrhagic Cystitis Clinical Trial
Hemorrhagic Cystitis, also called Radiation Cystitis when occurring after pelvic radiation
Lipella recently completed a phase-2a, dose-escalation clinical trial evaluating LP-10 (liposomal tacrolimus) for the treatment of hemorrhagic cystitis. Results are published in the peer-reviewed journal, International Urology and Nephrology. Lipella has received US-FDA Orphan Designation for this product.
Radiation used to treat prostate, colon, uterine, cervical and other pelvic cancers can cause chronic, painful urinary inflammation and blood loss called hemorrhagic cystitis. The blood loss, associated with hemorrhagic cystitis and radiation cystitis can lead to surgery, and can be fatal.
