August 17, 2021 (Newswire.com) –
Outcomes from a brand new examine on stem cell remedy for erectile dysfunction (ED) present promise, says co-author Dr. Ernst von Schwarz. The examine, “Intracavernous Injection of Stem Cell-Derived Bioactive Molecules for Erectile Dysfunction — a pilot section non-randomized managed trial,” was printed Aug. 10, 2021, in Journal of Males’s Well being.
“That is the most important examine ever carried out testing allogenic stem cell injections for the remedy of sexual dysfunction, which resulted in a major enchancment of erectile dysfunction (ED),” says Dr. Ernst von Schwarz, who simply introduced the upcoming publication of his extremely anticipated ebook, “The Secret World of Stem Cell Remedy,” to be printed by Morgan James Publishing, New York, in spring 2022.
“Stem cell remedy — though not FDA accredited — represents crucial and most promising advance in fashionable drugs up to now,” says Dr. von Schwarz.
The Worldwide Index of Erectile Operate — Erectile Operate (IIEF-EF) area rating is a affected person questionnaire used to measure numerous facets of erectile efficiency and assess illness severity in efficacy trials regarding ED.
“On this examine, IIEF-5 scores improved from 12.9 ± 4.47 at baseline to 18 ± 3.37 at follow-up, which was extremely important,” says Dr. von Schwarz. “Greater than 50% of males above the age of fifty years undergo from some extent of erectile dysfunction (ED), and there are not less than 30 million males within the U.S. identified with ED.”
The IIEF addresses essentially the most related facets of male sexual operate together with erectile power, orgasm, want, satisfaction with intercourse and total satisfaction. The questionnaire has the mandatory sensitivity and specificity required to detect treatment-related adjustments in sufferers with ED.
The IIEF classifies the severity of ED into 5 classes:
- No ED. 26-30
- Gentle. 22-25
- Gentle to average. 17-21
- Reasonable. 11-16
- Extreme. 6-10
“The offered examine is the primary to exhibit helpful results of intracavernosal injections containing stem cell-derived bioactive molecules on ED within the largest affected person pattern reported up to now. Stem cell remedy of impaired erectile operate is a promising therapeutic strategy. Massive scale scientific managed trials are warranted to exhibit additional proof for a generalized acceptance of stem cell remedy for ED outdoors of scientific research.” — Journal of Males’s Well being
