Introduction This study describes the impact of a daily sublingual Probelte Pharma autovaccine ® program to prevent recurrent symptomatic UTI in non-responders adults to conventional antibiotic prophylaxis. Material and Methods Observational prospective open study including patients with recurrent UTI. A sublingual vaccine containing ethanol-killed bacteria extract from specific patient´s uropathogenic strains were prepared from patient´s semen or urine sample . The main outcome criteria were the number and severity of symptomatic/clinical UTI, specific antibiotic dosage and duration of use, adverse effects if any, and necessity to stop or change the antibiotic was noted. Results Thirty-two patients met inclusion/exclusion criteria (17 men, 53.1%; 15 women, 46.8%).After 10 years follow up under autovaccine, the number of positive urine cultures decreased from 100% to 87% (P >0.05) and no patient take any curative antibiotics. Conclusion Probelte Pharma autovaccine ® provides a reduction in symptomatic repeated UTI and descrease the use of antibiotics with a good tolerance.
