Deborah J. Lightner, Mayo Clinic
Women have problems with oral antibiotics, including vagina and bowel infections. Also, bacteria causing urinary infections are becoming more resistant to oral antibiotis. Placement of antibiotic directly into the bladder does not cause these problems and are at doses that are may be able to stop bacteria from being resistant to antibiotics.

Condition Intervention Phase
Urinary Tract Infections Drug: Nitrofurantoin Drug: Gentamicin Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: INtravesical Antimicrobial Agents Versus STANDard Oral Antibiotics for the Treatment of Acute Urinary Tract Infection in Women With Recurrent Urinary Tract Infection (INSTANT Study)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in microbiologic effect of a chronic acute Urinary Tract Infection [ Time Frame: baseline, 7-10 days ]
    Microbiological culture growth of susceptible organisms obtained on day 0, compared with voided urine culture as no growth in 24-48 hours obtained at 7-10 days

  • Change in symptomatic relief of a chronic acute Urinary Tract Infection [ Time Frame: baseline, 7-10 days ]
    Completion of a Symptom Urinary Tract Questionnaire. Tracking the symptoms in the past 24 hours. Indicating how severe and how bothersome they were. Severe ranging from 0 (Did not have) to 3 (Severe). Bothersome ranging from 0 (Not at all) to 3 (A lot)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To establish the clinical FTE needs for providing urgent intravesical treatments [ Time Frame: baseline, through stufy completion, an average of one year ]
    Nursing needs to provide intravesical treatments of acute Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) in women with chronic recurrent UTIs. Measured in amount of participants and FTE requirement for nursing staff.

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Actual Study Start Date: June 28, 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 14, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 1, 2019 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Oral Nitrofurantoin
Participants will randomized to oral nitrofurantoin
Drug: Nitrofurantoin
Participants will receive oral Nitrofurantoin 100 mg twice daily for 7 days
Other Name: Macrobid, Furadantin, Macrodantin
Active Comparator: Intravesical Gentamicin
Participants will be randomized to intravesical gentamicin
Drug: Gentamicin
Participants will receive intravesical via catheter Gentamicin solution 25 mg in 50cc for 3 days
Other Name: Gentak, Garamycin

Detailed Description:
Each participant once enrolled returns with an active Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), confirmed by urine void. Participants will complete an UTI questionnaire, and if consistent with a simple non-febrile UTI will be randomized to one of two arms: oral nitrofurantoin treatment for 7 days, or intravesical gentamicin instillation once a day for three days. Patients will be followed for symptom relief with a repeat voided urine in 7 to 10 days, and with a repeated questionnaire for symptom relief.
