How is iAluRil® administered?
Before administering iAluRil®, your bladder will need to be emptied. This can be done either by urinating or by inserting a thin catheter through the urethra into the bladder and waiting for the urine to drain. Your doctor may perform an ultrasound to ensure that the bladder has been emptied sufficiently. The iAluRil® is then administered directly into the bladder. Once the iAluRil® has been instilled into your bladder it should be held there for at least half an hour to allow the contents to bond, however it can be held for as long as possible or practical. Once it can be held no more, the bladder can be emptied by urinating as normal. This is a relatively simple, painless and routine procedure, which will most likely be carried out by a doctor or a nurse.
How long will my treatment last?
iAluRil® is administered as a course of instillations generally over 2-6 months, depending on the condition you are being treated for. Throughout the course of instillations, your doctor will assess your response to treatment.
Will I get any side effects?
The two components of iAluRil® are found naturally in your body, therefore it is unlikely that this product will cause any side effects. Occasionally the administration process can cause minor irritation, however this is caused by the procedure and not the product itself. If you do experience any side effects, discuss them with your nurse or doctor and between you a decision can be made whether to continue with or stop treatment.
