Important Info for our Bladder Cancer patients from the American Urological Society

Original Release

Dear AUA Member:

Last month, we shared a message regarding Merck’s anticipated TICE BCG supply constraints due to an increasing global demand for the product.

To minimize disruption to patient care, Merck (the sole supplier of BCG to the United States) announced an immediate change to their TICE BCG distribution model, and in January, ceased all drop shipments and began allocating TICE BCG exclusively to wholesalers and distributors based on product supply and historical purchasing patterns. Wholesalers and distributors in turn, began utilizing the same allocation model to fulfill customer orders directly; therefore, please contact your wholesaler should you have any questions about your allotment.

The UroLift System flyer cover

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), formerly known as prostatism, is a common urological condition caused by the non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland in aging men.

As the prostate enlarges, it can squeeze down on the urethra. This can cause men to have trouble urinating, frequent need to urinate, urgency or other BPH symptoms. Risk factors for developing BPH include increasing age and a family history of BPH.

If you or a loved one are experiencing some of the challenges listed above, there are many options for treatment, one of which is discussed in the flyer with this post.

Prostate Cancer Awareness is Year-Round Issue

While we recognized Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in September, awareness-building for the disease is important year-round.

We reserved this clip of WITF’s Scott LaMar interviewing Kristine Warner from the PA Prostate Cancer Coalition and prostate cancer survivor, Mike Rotz, to share with you now. This interview is designed to enlighten people about some issues surrounding prostate cancer that may not normally be discussed. We hope it is a conversation starter for you with your friends, family and loved ones.
