  • Aims and objectives of this session

    The microbiome seems to influence a significant number of diseases in different medical disciplines. The new view on the role of the microbiome is causing a paradigm shift in therapy for urological diseases as well: for example, the use of antibiotics in asymptomatic cystitis with bacteriuria may result in a downregulation of the present flora which is a protection against relapses and the risk of urinary stones is significantly elevated if Oxalobacter formigenes is eliminated by antibiotic treatment.
    The microbiome is therefore rightly regarded as a “super-organ”, also in urology.
