Nanoparticles Topically Treat Erectile Dysfunction

Abstract:
Erectile dysfunction treatments like Viagra may help desire to flare, but these oral medications are not without side effects. New research suggests that a nanoparticle-based topical therapy could bring all of the pleasure with none of the adverse repercussions.

By injecting the same erectile dysfunction drugs found in oral treatments into nanoparticles, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx say they have found a way to bypass the side effects of oral medication for erectile dysfunction, or ED, according to a paper published last month in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Erectile dysfunction, the inability to achieve or maintain an erection, affects between 15 and 30 million men in the United States, according to the National Institutes of Health.
