AUA 2003 Meeting

Abstracts for both CP/CPPS and BPS/IC are listed since many believe they may be similar/related/the same. Caution: only 37% of abstracts presented at the AUA eventually get published in peer reviewed journals.

Note: AUA abstracts for more recent years are now published on our Chronic Prostatitis / CPPS forum.
