Experimental or Controversial Treatments
Experimental therapies for interstitial cystitis (IC/PBS) are those currently being explored in research studies around the world.

We've included antibiotics in this discussion area because the role of bacteria in IC remains controversial at best. We have little conclusive evidence that IC is bacterial in nature.
