Injections of alprostadil and other drugs for treating erectile dysfunction are not something new. But a team of researchers at the Danish Center for Regenerative Medicine has just developed a new type of therapy that could stop those treatments obsolete. And is that not only cure (as they say) the problems of impotence, but also makes the penis increase in size.
The new therapy involves injecting stem cells at the base of the penis, and has been developed initially for the patients who has had to remove prostatic glands because of the cancer, a procedure that among its side effects causes impotence. In addition, the contraction of the nerves and the blood vessels that causes such intervention also causes a shrinkage of the penis.
It should be noted that the results of this research has not yet been published, so neither have been able to be verified, but will await with great anticipation. The creators of this therapy claim that it has worked successfully in eight patients, and that a single injection has served to keep you free from erection problems for at least a year. And, now, they are waiting for the results related to twelve other patients, which will be officially announced in July in Barcelona, during the celebration of the annual congress of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology
Of course, even if the results are contrasting, they still would be ahead several years of tests and trials before such therapy can be officially accepted. But, being optimistic, we could be faced with the definitive treatment against erectile dysfunction.
