Adult Stem Cell Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as an inability of the male to attain and/or maintain penile erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance. It has become a high incidence health issue that seriously impacts the quality of life of men and their partners. In the US alone an estimated of 30 million men suffer from different degrees of ED. Although not life threatening by itself, ED is often a predictor of diseases such as coronary artery disease and cardiovascular disease. The use of Stem Cells as a therapeutic approach for ED has been investigated in 34 preclinical studies and one clinical trial. All 35 studies reported improved erectile function after Stem Cell injection in ED patients or animal models. In some preclinical studies SC transplantation also resulted in improved muscle, endothelium, and/or nerve in the erectile tissue.
Stem cell therapy is an innovative therapeutic approach for erectile dysfunction. Stem cells have the innate ability to restore and renew damaged cells. Adipose derived Mesenchymal stem cells are particularly adept at restoring blood vessels and veins to a functioning state and can therefore be very useful in treating patients with Erectile Dysfunction. Studies have shown that the use of stem cell therapy for ED has proven to be the new and effective choice in ED treatment, helping men everywhere to reach their sexual confidence once again.
Treatment for cases of Erectile Dysfunction are provided through either intravenous injection (IV drip) or through a localized injection or in combination.
Patients report having more energy, strength, flexibility and increased libido.
