SAN FRANCISCO -- Adding the PDE5 inhibitor tadalafil (Cialis) to antibiotic therapy led to significantly greater symptomatic improvement in men with chronic pelvic pain syndrome/chronic prostatitis (CPPS/CP) versus antibiotics alone, a randomized trial showed.

Patients randomized to the combination had greater reductions in pain, urinary symptoms, and chronic prostatitis symptom score, as well as significant improvement in erectile function as compared with men who received antibiotics alone (P<0.05 to P<0.01). Quality of life remained similar between the treatment groups.

Death rates from cancer continue to drop in the U.S., but within this overall picture there are winners and losers, with mortality from certain types of cancer on the rise and certain populations remaining at increased risk of dying from malignancies.

From 1999 to 2015, cancer mortality decreased each year by 1.4% in women and 1.8% in men; and in children, the yearly rate decreased 1.5% from 2011 to 2015, according to the annual report on cancer in the U.S. from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and others.
