Answer

Nanobacteria have been implicated in stone formation within the urinary tract, so eliminating them may improve to chronic prostatitis symptoms. Preliminary findings suggest that anti-nanobacterial therapy improves symptoms and decreases or eliminates prostatic calculi in patients with CPPS that is recalcitrant to standard therapy. Further investigation is needed. [47]
