I am a urologist working in Stockholm and see many patients with bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis. The European Guidelines on Urology recommend the use of Sodiumpentosanpolysulphate, i.e. Elmiron. It is however not available on the Swedish market and when I asked the Swedish Medical Products Agency they explained that your company has not applied for acceptation of Elmiron on our market. Is that so? If so, why not?

Yours Sincerely
