In October 2000, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases and the Interstitial Cystitis Association held a joint meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Clinical highlights from this meeting are reviewed. The general state of interstitial cystitis from the vantage point of the clinician is discussed, as well as epidemiologic advances, new concepts in markers for interstitial cystitis, and new treatment strategies. Although there are no breakthroughs in finding a cure for this disorder, potential major changes in methods of diagnosis and new forms of therapy are in the offing.
