Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Disease Understanding and Treatment Algorithm
Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Overview
Interstitial Cystitis (IC), also called as Painful Bladder Syndrome, is a chronic condition causing bladder pressure, bladder pain and sometimes pelvic pain. The pain ranges from mild discomfort to severe levels. Bladder is a hollow, muscular organ that stores urine. The bladder expands until it is full and then gives signals to the brain that it is time to urinate, communicating through the pelvic nerves. This creates the urge to urinate for most people. With IC, these signals get mixed up and then patients feel the need to urinate more often and with smaller volumes of urine than most people. The IC disease most often affects women and can have a long-lasting impact on the quality of life. Although there is no cure, medications and other therapies may offer some relief.
There are two types of IC such as Non-Ulcerative, which is found in 90% of the population suffering from Interstitial Cystitis. It is characterized by pinpoint hemorrhages called as glomerulations. Another types is Ulcerative, which comprises of about 5–10% of the patient population. . It is mainly characterized by Hunner’s ulcers and the patches that bleed on bladder walls. Hunner’s ulcers, also called “Hunner’s lesions” or “Hunner’s patches,” are a subtype of Interstitial Cystitis (also called IC) and are not ulcers in the usual sense. They are distinctive areas of inflammation on the bladder wall that characterize the “classic” form of IC. Hunner’s ulcers are the one diagnostic feature that clinches the IC diagnosis, but this “classic” form of IC affects only about 5 to 10 percent of patients. Often, patients with this form of IC have more severe symptoms than patients with non-ulcerative IC.
The DelveInsight Interstitial Cystitis market report gives the thorough understanding of the IC by including details such as disease introduction, signs and symptoms, risk factors, causes, pathophysiology, biomarkers and diagnosis. It also provides treatment algorithms and treatment guidelines for AKI in the US, Europe, and Japan.
Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Diagnosis
A thorough general medical history is of paramount importance to identify typical diagnostic symptoms of IC/BPS and other potential mimicking causative conditions. Unfortunately, delay of diagnosis is common, with an average time of 3–7 years from the time of presentation to the general practitioner to diagnosis by a specialist.
Despite the absence of urinary infection (UTI) being a prerequisite at the time of diagnosis, up to 50% of patients will have a previous history of UTI. It is important to elicit a comprehensive medical history, including past pelvic surgery or radiation, medications that can cause cystitis (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, cyclophosphamide, and ketamine), fibromyalgia, depression, sexual dysfunction, autoimmune diseases, allergies, and other gynecological conditions (vulvodynia, endometriosis, dyspareunia). Not only is the past medical history important for diagnosis, but also because many of these conditions may co-exist, further stressing the importance of multidisciplinary management.
The most commonly used methods to diagnose IC include physical examination, ultrasound/pelvic imaging, laboratory tests such as urinalysis, culture, cytology, potassium sensitivity test, etc.
Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Treatment
Since the etiology and pathogenesis of IC are not well understood and there is no curative treatment, the goal of management is to provide relief of symptoms to improve quality of life of the patients. However, still bladder pain syndrome can be treated using a step wise approach depending upon the identified risk of adverse effects and invasiveness of the treatment options. The therapeutic options used to treat IC include over the counter medicines (Aspirin, Acetaminophen, NSAIDs, etc.), non-narcotic pain medicines (Pyridium, Topical Medicines, Lidocaine Patch, etc.), narcotic pain medicines (Codeine, Oxycodone, Tapentadol, etc.)
Other interventions include use of physical therapy, antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIS), serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIS), Bladder Instillations, Immunosuppressants, etc.
Till date there are only two approved therapies to treat IC such as oral Elmiron (Pentosan polysulfate sodium) and intravesical Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO).

RIMSO-50: Mylan Pharmaceutical
Rimso-50 also known as Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) is first and only FDA approved bladder instillation that is specifically being developed for Interstitial Cystitis. RIMSO-50 is a 50% w/w aqueous solution for intravesical instillation. Dimethyl sulfoxide is a clear, colorless and essentially odorless liquid which is miscible with water and most organic solvents. RIMSO-50 acts as anti-inflammatory (it reduces bladder irritation and pain), antispasmodic (helps in relaxing bladder and pelvic muscles) and relives pain by depleting the level of P substance in bladder nerves. It increases bladder capacity by breaking the scar tissues and preventing the formation of collagen that creates scar tissue. Dimethyl Sulfoxide is clear and colorless.
However, there are several other intravesical instillations approved by the regulatory authorities that are used to provide relief to the patients with IC.

Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Emerging Drugs
KRP-116D: Kyorin Pharmaceutical
KRP-116D is a 50% w/w DMSO solution, which is administered intravesically and allowed to remain in the bladder for 15 min. Kyorin Pharmaceutical has planned the development of 50% DMSO (KRP-116D) for the treatment of IC/BPS based on a request from the Committee on Unapproved Drugs and Drugs of Off-label Use urgently required for healthcare organized by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, Japan. Evidences suggest that the patient notes a garlic-like taste within a few minutes after intravesical instillation of 50% DMSO, which persists for several hours, and that an odor on the breath and skin may remain for 72 h; this suggests that DMSO is absorbed from the bladder into the body. The drug has already completed phase III clinical developmental trial in Japan for interstitial cystitis, and the company is preparing for application for the approval of the drug.

Certolizumab pegol (Cimzia): UCB Pharma
Certolizumab pegol (Cimzia) is the only Fc-free, PEGylated anti-TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor). It has a high affinity for human TNF-alpha, selectively neutralizing the pathophysiological effects of TNF-alpha. Certolizumab pegol binds to human TNFα with a KD of 90 pM; TNFα is a key pro-inflammatory cytokine with a central role in inflammatory processes. The drug selectively neutralizes TNFα (IC90 of 4 ng/mL for inhibition of human TNFα in the in vitro L929 murine fibrosarcoma cytotoxicity assay) but does not neutralize lymphotoxin α (TNFβ). It is also shown to neutralize membrane-associated and soluble human TNFα in a dose-dependent manner. UCB Pharma has completed its investigation of Cimzia in phase III clinical developmental trial for the treatment of patients with IC in July 2017 itself. The complete results of this trial were published in 2018; however, the company has not published any recent updates since then. Additionally, the drug is also indicated for the treatment of adults with moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis (RA), plaque psoriasis, Crohn's disease (CD), adults with active psoriatic arthritis (PsA), and adults with active ankylosing spondylitis (AS).

Product detail in the report…
ASP6294: Astellas Pharma
ASP6294, being developed by Astellas Pharma, is a Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) neutralization antibody. NGF is responsible for the growth and maintenance of sensory neurons and appears to play a role in neuroimmune interactions, in tissue inflammation, and neuroplasticity for neuronal events leading to OAB and bladder pain/interstitial cystitis. ASP6294 inhibits the NGF, thereby blocking its role in bladder pain. The product has completed phase II clinical trial for the treatment of BPS/IC. The drug has completed phase II trial in March 2019.
SI-722: Seikagaku Corporation
SI-722 is a novel chemical compound in which a steroid is conjugated with chondroitin sulfate using Seikagaku's proprietary glycosaminoglycan (GAG) modification technology and drug delivery systems (DDS). Intravesically instilled SI-722 provides sustained release of the steroid having anti-inflammatory activity resulting in a demonstration of long-lasting improvement in the conditions of frequent urination and bladder pain. The company follows a drug discovery approach of increasing the bioactivity of GAG, mainly through GAG modification and processing, and is currently applying GAG to DDS. It is designed for sustained release by bonding steroids to chondroitin sulfate; this leads to anti-inflammatory effects of steroids under sustained release, which should provide sustainable relief of frequent urination and bladder pain, thereby, improving patient’s quality of life. SI-722 has completed a phase I clinical study in the US. As per clinicaltrials.gov, the drug is in phase I/II developmental clinical trial for IC/BPS. This clinical study will evaluate the drug for safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics, and will conduct an exploratory evaluation of its effectiveness.
Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Market Outlook
According to the Interstitial Cystitis Association (ICA), interstitial cystitis or IC, is a bladder condition that usually consists of multiple symptoms. Most IC patients have recurring pelvic pain, pressure, or discomfort in the bladder and pelvic region, and urinary frequency and urgency (feeling a strong need to go). IC may also be referred to as painful bladder syndrome (PBS), bladder pain syndrome (BPS), and chronic pelvic pain. Approximately, 3–8 million women in the United States may have IC, which constitutes about 3–6% of all women in the US. On the other hand, 1–4 million men have IC as well. However, this number is likely lower than the actual rate because IC in men may often be mistaken for another disorder, such as chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome.
Oral pentosan polysulfate sodium (PPS) and intravesical dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) are the only The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved treatments for the relief of IC symptoms. Fortunately, a variety of other therapies are often used alone or in combination for the treatment of IC. Among these orally administered therapies, only Elmiron (Pentosan polysulfate sodium; Janssen Pharmaceuticals) is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of IC. The US FDA approved it in September 1996. Pentosan Polysulfate is a semisynthetic heparin-like glycosaminoglycan. On the other hand, intravesical instillations with anesthetic solutions are used to control bladder pain, and heparin agents as they are thought to repair the damaged urothelium. The American Urological Association’s practice guideline for IC indicates bladder installations as a second-line treatment option when diet modification, stress management, and over-the-counter products are not enough. Bladder instillations or bladder cocktails are mixtures of medicines when introduced directly into the bladder. Types of instillations include Alkalinized Lidocaine and Heparin, DMSO, Sodium Hyaluronate, and BCG. Among these, Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO, brand name RIMSO-50, by Mylan Pharmaceutical), was the first and remains the only FDA-approved bladder instillation specifically for Interstitial Cystitis (IC). It was approved in 1978, and its exact mechanism of action is still not fully known, though it is believed to have several positive effects such as anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, painkiller, and increasing bladder capacity by breaking down scar tissue by preventing the formation of collagen, a protein the body uses to create scar tissue.
The current treatment of IC also follows use of interventions as monotherapies or Combination Therapies. Monotherapy includes Oral Medications, Intravesical Instillations, and Other treatment options while combination therapy involves combination of one or more of these therapies.
