Summary for Patent: 6,277,391
Title: Composition and method of treating diseases and disorders of the prostate
Abstract:This invention relates to a composition and method for treating diseases and disorders of the prostate such as prostatitis, benign prostatic hypertrophy, and prostate carcinoma. The prostate is treated by intraprostatic injection of a biodegradable sustained release formulation. By injecting the treatment substance directly into the prostate, improved treatment results are obtained with a much lower treatment substance dosage. Additionally, by incorporating the treatment substance into a biodegradable sustained release formulation, the need for frequent repetition of injections is eliminated.
