Researchers Study Udenafil
Sexual Medicine - Discounted Publishing Rate Still Available for ISSM Members
The phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor udenafil could improve cognition, depression, and somatization in men with erectile dysfunction (ED), Korean researchers say.
Their study, published last spring in the International Journal of Impotence Research, built on previous work.
This study involved 60 men with a mean age of 60 years. The participants had had ED for an average of 16 to 18 months.
Half of the men took 50 mg of udenafil daily for eight weeks. The other half took a placebo for the same duration.
Using a variety of assessment tools, including the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF), the researchers evaluated the men at baseline and again at the eight-week point.
They found that the men taking udenafil had greater improvements in ED, depression, general cognition, depression, and somatization when compared to the placebo group.
