The most compelling evidence is the interim results from the latest Randomised Controlled Trial in America. This double-blind trial took place across 5 facilities with 51 patients who’d all had a CAUTI diagnosed with antibiotics administered 30 days prior, with an initial bacterial load of >100,000 CFU in the urinary tract. [16]

Patients in the control group were fitted with a placebo device which mimicked the treatment device exactly in appearance and features. After 30 days all control patients’ CFU remained at the 100,000 CFU mark, 15/26 in the treatment group had 10,000 CFU, with 10 patients’ at 1,000 CFU. Only 1/26 in the treatment group developed a CAUTI needing systemic antibiotics, while 13/25 control patients required antibiotics. The comparison of 4% to 52% CAUTI rate is statistically significant, and shows great promise for the chronically catheterised with recurrent CAUTI
