Question Do cranberry products reduce urinary tract infections (UTIs) in susceptible populations? Review scope Included studies compared cranberry juice or cranberry products (e.g., capsules, tablets, or extract) used for ≥ 1 month, with placebo, no treatment, or other treatment in susceptible men and women with > 2 lower UTIs in the past 12 months; elderly men and women; patients with indwelling catheters, abnormalities of the urinary tract, or needing intermittent catheterization; pregnant women; or children with ≥ 1 UTI. Studies of UTI treatment or urinary tract conditions not caused by bacterial infection were excluded. Outcomes were number of UTIs and adverse effects.
