We report our initial clinical experience with local transrectal application
of enzymatic treatment for chronic nonbacterial prostatitis and prostatodynia in
20 patients. Using a specially designed symptom score for evaluation of
subjective treatment parameters, a statistically significant improvement of
symptoms was found in the areas of pain, micturition, and recreational
activities. No statistically significant differences were noted in laboratory
values before and after treatment. Minimal local side effects were seen in only
one patient. A favorable clinical response was noted in 75% of patients, whereas
the remaining 25% showed only moderate improvement of symptoms. No patient
experienced complete treatment failure.
