Abstract

It has been suggested that manipulation of the autonomic nerve supply to the prostate leads to loss of functional and structural integrity of the gland, and that these changes may be useful in treating prostatic diseases. This study investigates the effect of amikacin on prostate efferent neurotransmission in vitro, in both rat and human prostate samples.
