Scientists discover stem cell injection for erectile dysfunction

Scientists said they have found a new stem cell sex treatment that could cure men of erectile dysfunction (ED). Their recent trials showed that injecting 20m stem cells into the base of the penis could reinvigorate the nerves and blood vessels, making the organ larger. The treatment involved using liposuction to remove half a pint of fat cells from a patient’s abdomen.

This is then spun in a centrifuge, separated out the stem cells which were injected back into the patient’s penis. The therapy is in the realm of regenerative medicine, which has potential to fully heal damaged tissues and organs, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that today are beyond repair.

Details of the treatment and trial would be unveiled by the Director of Danish Centre for Regenerative Medicine, Professor Soren Sheikh at a meeting for European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology in Barcelona, Spain in July. Reports quoted Sheikh as saying that stem cell injections could reverse the degeneration of nerves and blood vessels in the penis following the removal of prostate glands due to cancer.

“The treatment could also help men with erectile dysfunctions due to causes such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and ageing.” The research was aimed at men who have had their prostate glands removed because of cancer and this can cause degeneration of the nerves and blood vessels in the penis, making it shrink.

Although, after administration of the therapy, the men regained erectile function, which lasted more than a year, larger trials over a longer period were required, the scientists said.
