Impotence. Treatment at the gene's level
Now, in the world there is more than 140 million people suffer in varying degrees of such dysfunction, as erectile dysfunction and impotence, this number will increase to 300 million by 2025 due to the growth of diabetes and other diseases. About half of men with diabetes have erectile dysfunction.
Researchers from the United States announced that they are testing an innovative way to get rid of impotence and erectile dysfunction in diabetes patients. In this, treatment is carried out by means of intervention in the patient's genes.
Diabetics often suffer from impotence. And this kind of disease is often not treated with drugs such as Viagra which can be bought at VGR Canada. American doctors of the major research center in Colorado were able to successfully treat this disease in laboratory rodents with diabetes. For the treatment took only four weeks.
In diabetes impotence causes destruction of cells that are present in the blood vessels. These cells, in the course of their work using nitrogen, and the vessels dilate and the penis fills with blood, carried an erection. The action of the main drugs for the treatment of this phenomenon is based on the fact that nitrogen is destroyed. But just as in the case of diabetics, this mechanism does not work. This is due to the fact that in diabetes, cells responsible for occupancy of vessels, do not work. Doctors have learned to artificially stimulate the cells by introducing a gene that is responsible for this function in the body. Two-thirds of laboratory rodents were cured of impotence due to this technique. Now, doctors currently testing ways to harmless to humans. If tests are successful, then in the near future it will be put into use. This technique does not preclude the combination of gene therapy and the use of dietary supplements that improve blood circulation.
Not long ago, scientists have conducted experiments with a gene called hMaxi-K. This gene creates additional molecules in smooth myocytes penis, which helps move potassium ions.
This usually relaxes muscle cells in the penis, allowing blood to flow in sufficient quantities for erection. For gene transfer hMaxi-K researchers have resorted to the so-called technology "naked DNA". The injection was administered in subjects aged 42 to 80 years.
Hope, that science will help people with diabetes to overcome sexual problems and live fool and bright life!
