Post Study of Chronic Pelvic Pain
The Multidisciplinary Approach to the Study of Chronic Pelvic Pain (MAPP) Research Network is conducting collaborative research on urological chronic pelvic pain disorders—specifically, chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) and interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS).

The MAPP study design looks beyond simply the prostate and the bladder for the causes of disease. This national research network includes Discovery Sites that are conducting multidisciplinary research studies, a Data Coordinating Core that is coordinating data collection and analysis, and a Tissue Analysis and Technology Core that is coordinating and analyzing tissue samples.

The MAPP Network is currently recruiting CP/CPPS patients to participate in network studies. Patients are highly encouraged to contact a network recruiting site, as meeting our recruitment goals for males is critical to addressing our central goals of understanding the natural history and underlying causes of CP/CPPS. Note by Prostatitis Foundation: Most sites would prefer you were within one hundred miles of the site in case of any follow up required.
