NIH Funds Major 5-year Project to Study Urologic Pelvic Pain as It Relates to FM & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  [ 5 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • September 5, 2008


The National Institutes of health has awarded $37.5 million to eight academic research centers for a collaborative 5-year study of chronic urologic pelvic pain syndromes – and their underlying relationship with Fibromyalgia & chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS).
The disorders include:
• Interstitial cystitis (IC)/painful bladder syndrome (PBS) and
• Chronic prostatitis (CP)/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS)
The objective is to develop treatments by understanding the underlying causes of these pain syndromes from “a broadened systemic perspective.” That is:
• Intensive studies focusing on individual organs – bladder and prostate - have not identified organ-specific causes for the conditions.
• But new research suggests an association with chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), fibromyalgia, and other chronic pain disorders – and “the possibility of common underlying disease processes.”
The research centers that will be conducting studies – and potentially recruiting participants - are:
• Northwestern University, Chicago
• University of California, Los Angeles
• University of Iowa, Iowa City
• University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
• University of Washington, Seattle
• Washington University, St Louis
• University of Colorado, Denver (tissue/sample bank & genomic/proteomic analysis)
• University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia (coordination & data analysis)
For more information - and to contact research director Leroy M Nyberg Jr., MD, PhD - see the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive & Kidney Diseases press release (http://www.nih.gov/news/health/sep2008/niddk-05.htm ).
