The urologic agent Urovaks (Uro-Vaks, Uro-vaccom) is widely used as a preventive and curative drug for infections of the urinary system.

Indications of the urovaksa

Urovaks can be used as part of combination therapy and to prevent the development of repeated episodes of chronic infectious diseases of the urinary system - and especially cystitis, regardless of the etiologic origin of the pathogen.

Urovaks is combined with antibiotics and antiseptic drugs as a therapeutic agent for adult patients and children after 4 years.

Release form

Urovaks is a dense capsule of gelatin, with an orange lid and a yellowish body. The capsule contains a powdery substance of a yellowish-brownish hue.

The cardboard box contains three blister plates, 10 pieces of capsules in each plate.

The main ingredient of Urovaks is the microorganisms of Escherichia coli: each capsule contains 6 mg of bacteria.


Urovaks stimulates the immune defense of the body, using the following mechanisms:

  • stimulation of T-lymphocytes;
  • induction of endogenous interferon production;
  • increase in the level of immunoglobulin A (IgA), including in the urinary fluid.

Escherichia coli is a kind of gram-negative rod microorganisms belonging to facultative anaerobes, which are present in the healthy microflora of the human gastrointestinal system.

The strain of Escherichia is recognized as one of the most effective probiotics, which is able to inhibit the development of the inflammatory process and prevent its recurrence.
