Which Factors Predict Placebo Effect in Sildenafil Studies?
New Videos Added to VJPU
Race, age, and health status appear to predict a placebo effect in sildenafil (Viagra) studies, a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study reports.
The authors' analysis of 42 placebo-controlled studies of the erectile dysfunction (ED) drug involved 4,360 men in placebo groups.
About 14% of the men responded to the placebo treatment. Black men and men younger than age 45 were more likely to be placebo responders, as were men with mild ED and those who did not have diabetes.
Further details on the study, including information on the assessment tools used and adverse events, can be found here.
Over the last few weeks, two new videos have been posted to the Video Journal of Prosthetic Urology (VJPU):
