A-CYST solution is a patented formulation designed for temporary replenishment of the glycosaminoglycan (GAG) layer in the urinary bladder. A-CYST solution contains naturally occurring components of the GAG layer of bladder epithelium. Deficiencies in the GAG layer may affect epithelial barrier function and allow adherence of bacteria, microcrystals, proteins and ions, or movement of solute residues (i.e. urea).
A-CYST solution has been designed for use in cystitis to temporarily coat and help replenish the deficient GAG layer on the urinary bladder epithelium.
