ASM GM 2014 - Bacteria in Urine Could Cause Overactive Bladder

Contrary to popular belief, urine is not sterile and the bacteria in it may be associated with overactive bladder (OAB) in some women. Presenters will discuss their research evaluating urine specimens of 90 women with and without OAB using a new technique, the discovery that women with OAB had distinctly different bacteria in their urine and the implications of these findings.
