Urine Is Not So Sterile After All, Bacteria Found In Urine Of Women With Overactive Bladder

Image
Although urine has long-been thought to be sterile, a new study has found that not only can bacteria survive in urine – they are relatively prolific in women with overactive bladder (OAB).

“Doctors have been trained to believe that urine is germ-free,” said Linda Brubaker, dean of Loyola University Chicago’s Stritch School of Medicine (SSOM) and an investigator in the new study, which was presented on Sunday as part of the 2014 General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology being held in Boston.

“These findings challenge this notion, so this research opens the door to exciting new possibilities for patient treatment,” Brubaker added.

In their presentation, the study team said the presence of bacteria had gone undetected because normal bacteria assays aren’t calibrated properly to analyze urine. Co-investigator Evann Hilt said, quite frankly, that researchers in the past weren’t looking to find latent bacteria in urine.
