New Medical Literature Shows Latency of Elmiron Use and Onset of Elmiron Eye Damage

Medical researchers continue to report on increasing evidence of the association between long term-use of Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium) and damage to the retina.

Recently, an article was published by Dr. Nieraj Jain from Emory University. The article reports a case of a woman with a potential case of pentosan maculopathy (Elmiron eye damage) that was diagnosed three years after she stopped using Elmiron. The article is Barnett JM, Jain, N. Potential New Onset Clinically Detectable Pentosan Polysulfate Maculopathy Years After Drug Cessation. Retin Cases Brief Rep. 2020 Nov 17, doi: 10.1097/ICB.0000000000001090.
