Have completed the Certolizumab pegol study and have good results. Waiting to get the study published and start a multi-center larger study.

There is presently 21 patients entered in the Cimzia to Treat Interstitial Cystitis Study. Patients are getting better and no one has had a problem. Cimzia is a drug that is FDA approved to treat other autoimmune diseases. There is basic scientific research that demonstrates that Cimzia should improve the symptoms of patients with Interstitial Cystitis. Females between the age of 18 and 65 who have not responded to other treatments for Interstitial Cystitis are eligible for this study. Contact IC Study at 760 743-0532.

I have received FDA approval for all my IC studies and am presently the principal investigator in three research studies available for the treatment of interstitial cystitis. One is with Dr. Parsons from UCSD on a better bladder instillation treatment. The next is a study on the benefits of patient counseling and an FDA approved medicine that treats autoimmune diseases. This is the certolizumab pegol study and is the most promising. The last is a study with Allergan on a device (LiRis) I put in the bladder that may release a long acting numbing medicine to relieve the symptoms of IC.
The bladder instillation study is a one time 2 day study that patients have done well with.
The advantages of the certolizumab study is that the medicine could take away your symptoms of IC. There is a 66% chance you get certolizumab pegol and a 33% chance you get placebo. I have already started recruiting patients. you would need to be out to southern California for 3 days to check your lab work and receive the first injection, 2 weeks and 4 weeks later there is another injection, and a final injection 4 weeks after that.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

The treatment and clinical research of interstitial cystitis is going well. I see 20-30 IC patients every day. I am currently running five clinical research studies on the evaluation and treatment of interstitial cystitis. If you are interested, please contact my office.
