Science Alert - December 2016

December 14 2016

December's highlight article describes the results from an observational clinical study that followed 22 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) for a period of 16 weeks. The aim of the study was to investigate whether the food supplement D-mannose would be feasible and safe for use as a prophylactic treatment for recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI).

PLUS, we also have a special feature on Women and Intermittent Catheterisation, which provides 19 articles and studies focussing on the unique challenges faced by women using ISC.
