Stem Cells and Male Sexual Health: More Research Needed, Experts Say

The use of stem cells in treatments for male sexual issues, such as erectile dysfunction (ED) and Peyronie's disease, has been studied for several years. While results have been encouraging, more research is needed, according to a new report in Sexual Medicine Reviews. 

Early research suggests that stem cells could improve sexual problems so that ongoing treatments are not necessary. 

The studies in the review involved embryonic and adult mesenchymal cell types. Animal studies have had positive results with no adverse events reported. However, it is unknown how such therapies would work for humans. 

Published studies on humans have focused on safety, and there is not enough data to determine if stem cells would be beneficial. The authors recommend that future research examine safety and efficacy, along with stem cell migration, survival, and differentiation.
