IMPRESS funds follow on work for Pelvic Nerve Study

IMPRESS has granted follow on funds to the School of Physiology and Pharmacology at Bristol University.

In her pilot project Dr Thelma Lovick showed in rats that electrical stimulation of the pelvic nerve within a specific frequency range can delay the onset of urination which for people with urinary incontinence might provide invaluable time to reach a toilet. Dr Lovick will continue this work with a further study on pigs, a model more similar to humans, in collaboration with Aarhus University in Denmark. The six month study will begin in November.
