Urinary Volatile Compound, Associated with Chronic Inflammation In Interstitial Cystitis

ABSTRACT: Interstitial cystitis (IC)/bladder pain syndrome (BPS) is a clinical condition that manifests as a sensory hypersensitivity of unknown cause and is characterized by urinary frequency, bladder discomfort, and pelvic pain. In the present volatolomic study, we have analyzed the VOCs unique to urine specimens obtained from interstitial cystitis patients, in compassion to healthy controls.This is the novel finding from comprehensive and unbiased metabolomics analysis that urinary menthol is decreased in urine specimens from IC patients, and that the reduced menthol level in IC is potentially linked to the chronic inflammation, which is often observed in IC patients
