Answer

Studies of immune modulators not evaluated in the AUA guidelines can be found in primary literature. These include mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), tanezumab, and certolizumab pegol. [71, 72]  Data on MMF are sparse, and the response was poor in patients with refractory interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) in a well-done controlled trial. [73]
