PURPOSE: Standard medical therapy for Chronic Prostatitis/Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CP/CPPS) including such agents as nonsteriodal anti-inflammatories, alpha-blockers, antimicrobial therapy, and 5a-reductase inhibitors has not been uniformly effective. The purpose of this review is to focus on the role of alternative therapies available for the management of CP/CPPS. METHODS: We performed a systematic review of the literature for articles published in PubMed up to 2012 pertaining to commonly employed alternative therapies.

Acupuncture is a promising therapy for relieving symptoms in chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS), which affects >15% of adult men worldwide. The aim of the study was to assess the effects and safety of the use of acupuncture for CP/CPPS. MEDLINE, EMBASE, CENTRAL, Web of Science, CBM, CNKI, Wang-Fang Database, JCRM, and CiNii were searched from their inception through 30 November 2015. Grey literature databases and websites were also searched. No language limits were applied.

OBJECTIVES: To systematically review the efficacy and safety of acupuncture for chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS). METHODS: PubMed, Cochrane library Central, Web of Science, Wang-fang Database, and CNKI were searched from their inception to June 30, 2016. Data of acupuncture for CP/CPPS following randomized controlled trials (RCTs) was included. The data were analyzed using the Cochrane Collaboration Review Manager. The primary data were the National Institute of Health-Chronic Prostatitis Index (NIH-CPSI) score at the end of follow-up.

Intraprostatic leukocyte function may vary depending on local inflammatory or malignant cell microenvironment. Interleukin (IL)-17 producing cells play key roles in chronic inflammation and autoimmunity. Little is known about the relevance of IL-17 producing cells at sites of prostate tissue inflammation and/or prostate adenocarcinoma. In this study, we analyzed thirty formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded whole-mount radical prostatectomy specimens of prostate cancer patients.

"Chronic prostatitis" unaccompanied by signs of active inflammatory disease is a psychosexual disturbance, not a bacteriological disease. Prostate massage, local therapy, and antibiotic therapy are usually of no therapeutic value; a careful history and evalution of the background and good social and psychiatric counseling are the only effective and rational means by which this so called "prostatitis" is controllable.

Prostatitis exists when inflammation of prostatic glands and tissues results from infection or allergy. Gram-positive and negative bacteria cause most prostatic infections, but infections may also be caused by fungi, mycoplasma, viruses, and other nonbacterial infecting agents. Precise diagnostic localization of infection to prostatic glands is accomplished by obtaining divided urinary specimens and prostatic fluid and observing numbers of bacteria (or other infecting agents) present in each specimen.

A total of 123 patients suffering from chronic prostatitis and infertility were included in this study. No significant improvement in sperm quality was found following prostatic massage with (90 patients) or without (33) antiobiotic plus anticongestive therapy. There was no apparent change in the relative contribution on the prostate and seminal vesicle of the ejaculate, as judged by the concentration of calcium and fructose. Nor was the pregnancy rate increased. It is concluded that prostatic massage is of little or no therapeutic value in treatment of infertility.
