& THE LIMITATIONS OF OTHER TREATMENT OPTIONS
Candidates for UroCellZ Biologics Therapy include those ED sufferers who have failed to respond or prefer not to utilize other therapies for erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease.
Erectile Dysfunction Treatment
While PDE5 inhibitors, such as Viagra and Cialis, provide many with relief from erectile dysfunction, they are far from a universal solution for ED.
- Over one third of the 300,000 men diagnosed with erectile dysfunction annually in the United States do not respond to conventional drug treatment.
- Some men are not able to take PDE5 inhibitors due to certain medical conditions, including severe heart disease, a recent heart attack, stroke, irregular heart rhythms, uncontrolled high or low blood pressure, severe liver or kidney disease, or eye problems, such as retinitis pigmentosa.
- Other men find that the PDE5 inhibitors become less effective over time as their body builds up a tolerance to them.
For those who do not respond to PDE5 inhibitors or are unable to take them, the alternatives are not always appealing.
- Injectable drugs. Medicines can be injected into the penis before sex to relax the muscles that surround the blood vessels in the penis, increasing blood flow and producing an erection that lasts 30 minutes to an hour or longer. Negatives of this option include fear, discomfort and lack of spontaneity.
- A penis pump (or vacuum constriction device). A penis pump is an external pump with a band on it that can be used to get and maintain an erection. Possible drawbacks of a penis pump include unnatural-feeling erections (due to a lack of firmness at the base of the penis) and awkwardness.
From A UROCELLZ Physician
“My first [patient] just came back for his second injection. He had ED that was no longer responding to oral PDE5-Is and has midshaft Peyronie’s with an hourglass deformity. He came in today for the second injection and told me that he’s getting good erections with daily dose Cialis. Also, after induction of artificial erection, the degree of curvature and waisting has improved as well.”
Peyronie’s Disease Treatment
Injections of XiaFlex, the first FDA-approved drug for Peyronie’s disease, are in the range of $3,300 per injection, with a cost of 4 cycles of 2 injections each totaling $26,000 per treatment. This price tag can make it cost prohibitive for many.
UroCellZ presents an attractive possibility for ED patients who are disheartened by the ineffectiveness of PDE5 inhibitors for their condition and displeased with the alternative options. It also offers a less costly treatment option for those with Peyronie’s Disease.
