Cure for erectile dysfunction?
A new medical treatment under development claims to add length to a man’s penis while also giving hope to a cure for Erectile Dysfunction in men that suffer from impotence.
Iflscience.com has reported in an article that the Danish Center for Regenerative Medicine is working on developing this miracle injection that would change the way men deal with Erectile Dysfunction and the feeling of inadequacy because of their penis size. But only if it works.
Rather than having to pop a pill every time they want to get it up, the new therapy could mean that after a single injection, men with penis problems are cured for life. Being developed by the Danish Center for Regenerative Medicine (DCRM), the treatment involves injecting stem cells into the base of the penis.
Like most other cures and innovations, this was a just-so-happens finding. The remarkable medicine wasn’t intended for penis growth or Erectile Dysfunction.
The treatment has actually been created for men who have had to undergo surgery for prostate cancer. One potential side effect of a prostatectomy is erectile dysfunction and impotence, particularly if nerves or blood vessels are damaged during the procedure, or if you are an older man going under the knife. The constriction of vessels can also make the penis shrink.
There’s still much more that needs to be done before the therapy is certified and then made publicly available to those who can benefit from it.
In a series of trials – the results of which have yet to be published and so can’t be officially verified – the researchers are claiming that the stem cell injections can reverse damage and restore full function to the penis. They say the results have so far been successful on eight men, while they are awaiting the details of 12 more out of an early trial of 70. So far, the men have still been able to get hard even a year after treatment, while the researchers hope to continue testing to see just how long it lasts.
Further details of the procedure and the trial are expected to be announced at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology meeting in Barcelona in July.
