Due to the global rise in antimicrobial resistance (AMR), there is a continued drive for antibiotic stewardship and more prudent prescribing of antibiotics 1. Several clinical practice guidelines recommend the consideration of antibiotic free therapies for the management of both acute and
recurrent urinary tract infections 1 2 3
Consider antibiotic free approach and delaying antibiotic use for 48 hours in patients under 65 years of age¹ ̕² ³
If symptoms worsen or do not improve within 48 hours, a back up antibiotic prescription is indicated
Antibiotic free options can be offered as a prophylaxis to patients with recurrent UTIs1,4,5
Xyloglucan is a mucoprotectant of plant origin.6
Its fibrous composition makes it resistant to digestion. When it arrives in the large intestine, its viscoelastic properties allow it to form a protective layer over the surface of the intestinal mucosa, reinforcing the integrity of the intestinal barrier.
This reduces the adhesion of uropathogenic bacteria to the intestinal wall, which in turn reduces growth and proliferation of bacteria in the intestine.6
The overall effect reduces transmission of bacteria outside of the intestine which may prevent infection of the urinary tract.6
Hibiscus, a type of plant and Propolis, a compound produced by bees both contain organic acids that mildly decrease urinary pH in the bladder.6
Infected urine contains large amounts of nitrite. Acidification of nitrite results in the formation of nitric oxide (NO) which creates an unfavourable environment for bacterial growth, helping to eliminate bacteria and control symptoms of cystitis.6
The majority of uncomplicated UTIs originate from bacteria in the large intestine, making it an important target for the prevention of recurrent infections.6
Utipro Plus AF is currently the only non antibiotic treatment approach that effectively targets the source of infection in the intestine by creating a protective layer that reduces the growth of bacteria and their subsequent ascent into the bladder.6
Utipro® improved the symptoms associated with acute cystitis after 5 days of treatment, compared to a placebo, reducing need for antibiotic treatment.6
