Antibiotics help improve OAB

Patients with OAB symptoms and pyuria benefited from six to nine months of antibiotics, researchers reported at the 41st annual meeting of the International Continence Society.

Patients with overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms and pyuria benefited from six to nine months of antibiotics, researchers reported in Glasgow, Scotland, at the 41st annual meeting of the International Continence Society.
