Accepts healthy volunteers


The aim of this study is to compare the urinary viral microbiome and bacterial microbiome between overactive bladder syndrome (OAB) patients and healthy controls in order to determine a possible alteration in the urinary microbiome which may predispose women for OAB, and also in order to determine a possible influence of the urinary viral microbiome on the urinary bacterial microbiome which may predispose the individual to OAB. Furthermore, we aim to compare the urinary bacterial microbiome to the vaginal, rectal, urethral and salivary bacterial microbiome within the same individual and between the two groups in order to determine a possible route of colonization of the urinary bladder.
