Neurologic Issues Cause ED in Men with HTLV-1 Infection, Study Finds
World Meeting: Register by Nov. 1 for Discounted Rates
Scientists report that erectile dysfunction (ED) in men with human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) infection often has neurologic causes.
Their study, published online in August in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, involved 84 men with HTLV-1 infection in Brazil. Just over half of them had ED.
The researchers found that neurologic disease was one of the main risk factors for ED in these men. Associations were also found with older age and diabetes.
Please see our website article for more information, including an explanation of HTLV-1 infection and the researchers' views on their findings.
