    I haven't seen anything new. Did you find the post back in 2011 about it?

      Liris was bought by Allergen today. It must be working.

        Any idea when this is going to be approved by the FDA? Just had Botox that didn't really help. Next option is Interstim. If this is going to be available soon, I will wait on the Interstim.

          I think this is going to be a great product for some people. Allergen bought the technology so they could use it for a variety of urinary tract conditions. It is probably one of the coolest things I have seen come out of research yet...well except for Dr. Shorter's research about diet, of course! ;-)

            It can take a long time to get approval by the FDA. They even have to approve the packaging and labeling --- and the testing to ensure that they are safe. Sometimes it seems like it takes forever, but I have to admit that I feel safer with them there to protect me.

              Re: treatment option

              On its website, Taris, the maker of Liris, said Liris for interstitial cystitis would be FDA approved by 2015 , but now that Allergen has bought the technology I have not been able to find anything on the web about Liris and FDA approval.

              To make matters worse it seems that Allergen is involved in a hostile takeover by another pharmaceutical company, Valeant.

              An article I read said, Valeant does not have interests in urological technology.

              This would be a nightmare if a company bought Allergen, and then shelved Liris because they are not interested in urological technology.

              Does anyone have more reassuring news about the future of Liris for interstitial cystitis, now that it has been bought by Allergen.

                If you all are interested in the LINKA pretzel study, you need to click on the ICN Front Page tab at the top left of this forum page. They are conducting and enrolling patients currently in many locations. Good Luck!
